  • My 1st Jordan Kit

    Yes! I finished a Jordan kit and I'm satisfied!



    This is the 1925 Ford Pick-up.



    It isn't perfect but I am happy enough to start another soon - I have 3 more waiting. I was slightly fearful of this first but it wasn't bad. The parts were small and I lost the break, gas, and clutch pedals but, and not that anyone will ever see them, I cut new ones from styrene.



    I also made a new crank from wire because there was too much flash on the plastic one supplied. Jeff S. (jschumaker) used screen on his radiator ... I used ribbon to get the affect. The black ribbon I used I bought to simulate window screen on an n-scale project. I sprayed it with my wife's hairspray before cutting it to size and gluing it in place.

    One other detail was the headlights. I painted the center silver and the dabbed them with Micro Crystal Clear. Not a bad affect.

      Getting over that first hurdle can often be a little intimidating. You did a good job, congratulations.

          Nice work. The Jordans I've built have nice die work, the only issue is the size of the parts.

                Excellent, and keep going now that you're in the Jordan mode. There's a whole mindset that goes with modeling these little creatures. One thing I have found helpful is to have a clean workbench area and place a backstop on three sides to catch flying parts.

                    Thanks kids. I appreciate the kind comments.

                    If I could have played hooky from work today I'd have stayed home to work on another one.

                          Nice work, Joe. How did you paint the wheels, and where did you find the ribbon?

                            These are difficult kits and you did a wonderful job. It's always the first one which is the most difficult... or is that "it's the one you just built is the most difficult"? No matter... well done and I'm sure you will crank out the others in no time.

                              Nice job! First kit and you're already customizing it!

                              As my mother used to say to me when I was just a wee lad,

                              "Now see, That didn't hurt, did it? What were you afraid of?"
                              You say you have 3 more??? I'll wager that your 3 will multiply!
