You just have to LOVE the Studebaker.

Great vehicles, and these are nice models.

Peter, thanks. 

My source for these models is eBay here in the States. 

I do wonder how available they are around the world,
especially since most companies that have these made are in the USA. 

Some of the sellers do ship worldwide,
but it is expensive.

Yeah, I do love these early Studebakers.  

Regards, Dave L.

The problem in Australia is, the model may cost $30 - $50 AU,

but the postage will be $40-$70 AU,

that makes it an expensive model.


That would mean I couldn't eat for a week,

and that won't do.... haha.

:td: :bg:  :bg:

......Peter.

Wouldn't you rather have a model car than eat ? 

:shocked:

My next project will be removing the promotions,

from this Liberty Classics 1928 Chevy pickup.

This truck has a load of crates,

that nicely covers the coin slot.

The promotions were removed,
but there was a ghost image left. 

It is unusual that the base paint was slightly softened,
leaving a dull area around where the logo was.

I'm going to give the truck a spray of Dullcoat,
to see if that helps. 

I removed the tires,
because I didn't know if they would be affected by the lacquer.

The Dullcoat helped, but it is still not a perfect job. 

Maybe some heavy weathering would complete the job. 
Not all projects end perfectly. 

:bang: 

The windshield is not frosted.
I have tape over the glass and it has not been removed yet. 

I painted the big crate a different brown for variety.
