About Sean Hadfield (windysean)

I picked up model building and HO-scale model trains from my father. I've been working at it now for more than 45 years, always learning more. Although a self-proclaimed cheapskate, I always modify or add to my builds to make them unique and special (for better or worse, ha ha).


Great work Sean. Love how simple it is.

Hi Sean Nice work on the Model T. I especially like the Lewis gun mount and the two spare tires. Dick

It was the Lindberg 1/32 scale Model T Ford Coupelet. There's a review of the base kit on Modeling Madness here . Mine was a little warped, and I assume that had I used the fenders and body they might have fought the frame into a straight alignment, but there was decent detail for the engine and suspension as a basis for my conversion. I logged my build in the Great War campaign that just ended on Armistice Day, but you can see a summary on my Flickr page here . Thanks for asking! -Sean.

Great subject and really clean build. You have inspired me to revive a project from long ago. I don't want to be a thread hijacker (because we all know how annoying that is) but here's the one I wanted to do: I was also using a 1/32 kit, but apparently not as nice as the Lindberg one as it has no engine: This is as far as I had gotten before I decided it was going to take a major rework: Thanks for the inspiration. I haven't done much modeling in quite a while but now I'm inspired to get back into it by going after something small like this. Too bad I just took a two week gig away from home... By the way, RPM makes a decent little kit of a similar vehicle in 1/35, should anyone else be interested.
