B29 T-Bomber (kitbash)

Built by:
Tim Nolan in Edgewater, Florida

The B-29-T is based on the reissued Monogram Green Hornet 1929 Ford T-Roadster.

The basic body was modified with the addition of a floorpan, and a molded in upper deck to support the bubbletop which was taken from Roth's Beatnik Bandit 2.

A new dash panel was also fabricated. The frame is stock, the dropped front axle came from the Red Baron. The firewall and turtle deck were channeled slightly to lower the body. The Li'l Coffin donated its tires and rims, as well as its front grille shell, which was inverted and fitted with a shortened radiator.

Headlights are milled aluminum, front nerf bars are from the parts box. The motor is built stock, with the addition of scale pluglines with milled distributor, fuel lines, water hoses, as well as the bomb air scoop. The duel feed line is made from a straight pin and has milled fittings, and the pulley faces are photoetched . Inside the bubbletop, the interior is lined with white fun-fur on the floor and all sides.

A photoetched gauge panel with reduced Mooneyes gauges, etched brake/throttle pedals, cast resin skull shifter, and a scale key ring with keys laying on the parts box tuck-n-roll seat complete the interior.

Steering handle bars are also from the parts box. An etched gas gap, and an antenna made from guitar string with mulled base and fuzzy tail are mounted on the rear deck.

Everything on the car that isn't chrome is painted with HOK Kandy Line Gold over Orion Silver Microflake base coat. The Flying Tiger bomber graphics were hand-painted with Testors enamels with decals from Dave Mikrut.
