    Supercharged Cord Convertible Coupe 1937, so-called "Sportsman". This has never been the official name of the car, the nick probably originates from a contemporary add which said "a car for a sportsman", or something like that.

    Yellow or grey to see all curves,shadows and contrasts.
    Anything brighter than black is good for bps.

    Thanks all for kind words!

    These cars had certain standard color schemes. Unfortunately, nowadays they are repainted in whatever colors. I'll see what could be a historically correct and a "blueprint-friendly" color-scheme, and make new renders.

    That'd be nice, hard to see the shape when it's black indeed.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Looks like a great model.

    I agree about black paint being a problem... If you're going to repost the prints in different colour, could you also make them a little higher resolution, please? Thanks!
