LaLD car week: Free for all Friday '49 Ford

Now I know 1/24 scale castings don’t qualify for the contest. But my entries this week were all about having fun and taking cool shots. So even though this post really doesn’t qualify... It’s all for the fun right? This is a Motor Max 1/24 1949 Ford I got a few years back. It’s totally not the most expensive of models but it sure produced cool photos.

A few years back the hood ornament was kinda flaking. So I removed the bulk of it and sanded it down a bit. So it was left with more of a trim look. It’s not perfect but I actually think it looks more Hot Rodish without the huge ornament.

I also have some color versions of the photos. They also look pretty cool, but not as era authentic.

Thank you all for the look! I hope a few of you get a kick out of these photos like I did.
