I'm not sure just how and when this older Provence Moulage came into my collection, but it has been tired for several years. So I started work on it.

It had broken bumpers as well as other problems.  I had an AMT Ford coupe for parts, if needed and if they worked. I used two tires and both bumpers (after drilling new holes). The original license tag was re-attached.

This morning I affixed the bumpers and this afternoon I used chrome stripping on the sides.  I kind of like the results.

And just a little while ago I ordered a complete AMT Ford coupe kit;  but I'm hanging on to the parts I have - just in case.  That will be a project for another day!

David, what a great job you have done restoring that ‘46 Ford Woody. Beautiful wood effect. Your setting the car in what looks like a mountain scene is very realistic.  It must be very satisfying to restore a model with such good results.

Just a wonderful re-work. Excellent choice of the yellow color.
