For any folks following this "mini-series," this 1/18 1923 Ford Model T Runabout project has been completed. There's one little thing left to do but it can wait.

-From a 1/18 junker Duesenberg I pirated (and modified) a single brake-light (the "Snap On" coach brake-light was simply too large).

-Attached the rear license plate.

-Prime, painted & installed the trunk assembly.

-Fabricated a "rubber" trunk mat.

-Painted interior "rubber" mat (it was silver.. ???)

-Set up photo shoot with 1:1 1923 Model T and 1/18 Snap On (what I started with) truck.

Needless to say, superbly done, Chris!  It's good to see you flexing your old modifying muscles again!  😀

Thanks Marty! Yeah, I thought it best to "warm up" with this small project before I tackle something like modifying a 1/18 1959 Buick into an ambulance or scratch-building a 53' trailer for my 1967 Peterbilt....or better still, finishing up my second car hauler project. 😌

Chris, I have been following your construction, and I am more than impressed.  I'm in awe.   Well done!  Now, of course, I have to reflect my own interests.  Are you ready to do this again, but this time in scale 1/43?    Think on this.

Thank you, David.  I could pretty much, more-or-less, match those model years in 1/18 scale; you have a nice collection of "early stuff." The short answer to your question is, "No."  I've had offers before to duplicate personal projects or modify a collector's existing replica.  There's several "booby-traps" hidden in work such as that and I've lost enough hair! (LOL)

On the other hand, if you've truly followed this 6 PART series, you should be able to copy what I've done. Locating smaller 1/43 scale hinges, however, might prove challenging but no doubt they do exist.   .....besides, that "lower left" blue Model T is basically the same as mine (just paint EVERYTHING black...lol).

At any rate, thanks again David for the compliments.  This "quicky-mod" had been on my radar for quite some time.

-Chris
