Trying to get the front view correct

I’ve add some timber to do the inner flare on the front mudguards, then did a lot of hands free shaping.

The headlights position was too high but with some more shaping I’ve managed to lower them.

Or MAD!

I’m struggling with the look of the front Anthony,

BUT then maybe I need to remind myself it’s a toy…...

Am I being way too fussy???

Definitely not Mad and actually just the opposite completely of Sound Mind.
Maybe you could run self discipline and self worth clinics for young people using your craft as a medium.
As we have discussed before there is some young people around these days that need to step it up.

By the way I think the front of your TOY looks better than the real thing.

I’m my own worst enemy as I’ve been fiddling.

Thank you everyone for your kind words of encouragement.

I’ve also added the pedals and the parcel shelf.

Really turning out nice, love the way the grill sticks out of the frame!!!
I’ve been fiddling with them pesky radiators and still feel I haven’t got it right, once you try to add the angle to the front of it.
One thing to add the one or two year older models doesn’t have the slanted radiator.
It’s coming together just right and you’re really going to have a beauty when finished.

There are some curves in the real Ford that are very hard to achieve in your model. For example the grille slopes outward toward the bottom and the front edge of the fenders curves downward to a point below the grille. The headlights are located below the top of the grille. These are some of the details that make it recognizable as a 33 Ford Sedan, but I would agree with the others about not beating yourself on it.
