My 30 Ford Hemi Rat from the Revell '30 Model A.
This 1/25 resin 30 Ford Hemi Rat build is one I have wanted to start for some time now using the Revell ’30 Model A. It occurred to me it wont build itself so I just had to take the first step. I didn’t get the ’30 Model A kit until after it was discontinued and the prices went crazy. I finally found one for $75 which was the most I have paid for a kit yet. This meant I was not gonna just build it once an hope I didn’t screw it up. I was gonna have to make molds to cast anything I use from it in resin.
Building the master
The first step was the body, I have seen some builds that had a nasty seam showing where the roof was glued to the body. I chose to glue these together first so I could finish the seam working with plastic an liquid glue. I added a few more details like the roof seams along with filling in the taillight holes. I also took on the challenge of extending the roof panel forward like it does for the full size body. The body wasn’t so bad, but working the insert was pretty challenging.
