Revell 1929 Ford Rat Rod By Rick HopkinsPosted: December 10, 2015
Here is a newer kit done up for you guys. this one is a re-release of the old Revells 29 Ford closed cab pickup truck. This re-release has the new style pop-in white walls with steel wheels. The kit also has several options like a roadster style truck cab with or without a canvas roof. The kit still only comes with the flat head four cylinder engine, but you can add supplied chrome racing / street rod parts (as in the old original kits)
I decided to do mine as the closed cab mild rat rod. I painted it in hot rod primer gray with a little rust here and there. I really enjoyed doing this retro model. It reminded me of when I was a kid in the 70’s building it for the first time and lots of fun!
As the old type Revel kits, these are really detailed and sometimes over-detailed! There are many parts that are very thin and hard to work with. If you take your time and look carefully at the directions it does go together and looks great when you’re finished!
