WCSTA -05- 1953 Pre A coupe 50041 - from the start

#1 Post by E Rutherford » Fri Mar 13, 2015 12:18 pm

The owner has been dragging the project around for 20+ years. Actually he had been dragging 2 of them around for 20+ years, this is number 2. Number 1 is out of paint and is in it's assembly phase. Now that the "go ahead" has been given, "Number 2" is headed for new metal. Here are some of the initial photos taken. Trust me it looks a lot worse in person!

Lovely! Looks rusty, but straight. Is that faded Adria blue paint?
