Now that the move to a new home is complete, I have a lot of new ideas too. Some months ago I got a Duesenberg from Monogram, which is a great kit for its age. But theres light and shadow - for example the former owner already scratched spokes for the wheels, but one of them seems to be missing, some other parts as well. Think spare parts are hard to get (or too expensive), so the Duesenberg will get a special treatment, some kind of this:
The kit itself:
If you dont know it already, heres the most.... evil..... rat rod EVER. German engineering at its very best, powered by a 47l BMW plane engine. Can be seen in the Sinsheim museum. You even can roast some Bratwurst with it.
Chassis in progress - decided to paint it in metal tones. This was done with a sponge and Humbrol MetalCote colors, final touch up with little bit of Vallejo metals and here and there some decent washings (GW color). Needs some more touch ups here and there, this will follow when the whole body is installed.
