So, I hit the paper first.
When looking, remember, I am a residential designer, (I draw and build houses), so, drawing a 1939 car is quite the stretch.
This is what I have to work with. Molded in black and pretty straight, so far. Not a lot of flashing, not a lot of dents to fill, but it seemed to lack something a bit more modern. (To me)
So, I sketched out the front of the car. My "artistic" rendition of about what the front should look like if I were to build it close to the box.
This is where I am thinking of going. The fenders will be filled at the wheel well. The front will no longer have a bumper, or a hood. There will be a cool ground effects piece built into the front, meshing the fenders and the grill for a cool, slick look. The grill will be held in by 2 rods brought back to the fire wall. The engine is already a 7 liter engine, (If someone could tell me what size engine that is, I would appreciate it). I had thought I wanted to find a 454 big block for this bad boy, but not sure now.
Since I was sketching, I thought I would take a stab at the back end. Since I love me some wings, like that of a 57 or old caddy, I thought I would see what my mind could make up on this. Not sold on the idea, but not completely taking it out, either. We'll see.
So, let the plastic fly and the glue dry, I'm already having a ball, boys. (And girl.)
