    I recently finished the 1908 Ford Model T from ABC. I scaled it up from 1:32 to 1:25 to match some of my other vehicle models. I also redesigned the wheels to allow cutting out the openings around the spokes. I think they look a lot better than the ones the kit comes with.

    After uploading the pictures, I noticed I didn't have a good view of the front. Next time I get the camera out I'll try to take a few more shots.

    Roger,

    Nicely built! The early autos are well modeled in paper. Let's see more of these beauty queens...,

    Best regards,

    Beautiful! The wheels look great! I can see how a solid wheel there would take away from the beauty of the build. Great job!
