So, I decided to build myself a miniature of my 53. I started looking for parts about 12 months ago. The only 1/18 scale diecast 53 I found was a convertible which obviously wouldn't work. I was able to find a diecast in 1/24 scale though. Then it was looking for all the other parts. I was able to find most of them from sellers on ebay making cast resin and 3D printed parts; Torque Thrust wheels front and rear plus wide slicks, tunnel ram, Holleys, scoop, fenderwell headers, tach, magneto, etc. I wasn't sure what I was going to do about the motor and chassis though. I found a plastic kit that had what I was looking for, straight axle, same style ladder bars, tall back buckets and more. For the paint about the closest match I found was "MARIGOLD"; wish it had a bit more orange in it but it'll do. Had a bit of body work to do, radius the wheel wells, remove the trim and fill the holes etc. I made the grill on my 53 out of a piece of expanded metal I had and wasn't sure what to do for the model then I remembered a piece of window screen I had and am going to use that. It's still a bit away from being completed but I thought what the hell I'd send along a few photos of the work in progress. Yes, there is a gap on the doors but they're being held on by tape from the inside for the photos.
