I recently bought this original AMT '28 Ford sedan on eBay. I always liked this kit.

Posted Image

It had a few tire burns in it, (you can see the remains of the worst one on the visor above the windshield) but overall it was in great, unbuilt condition.

Posted Image

I basically combined this kit with a Revell '32 Ford 5-window coupe. I used the suspension and running gear, wheels and tires, engine, taillights, etc. from the '32.

Paint is Sign Painter's One Shot "Bright Red". The top and interior look white in the photos but it's really Testors "Radome Tan" which is a nice vanilla looking yellow/tan color.

Posted Image

I used the seat, door panels, and '40 Ford steering wheel from the '32 kit. Seat belts and pedals are scratchbuilt.

Posted Image

Finally, the small block Ford with it's C4 automatic transmission from the Revell '32 is in there and is just as it comes out of the box.

And that's it. I'm really satisfied with this one and like the way it turned out. Of course, the fact that the Model A Ford is among my favorite cars doesn't hurt any! :lol:

As usual, comments and criticisms are welcome and encouraged.

Looks HOT Drew!!!

May I ask though, why you went to such great lengths to get that slick red finish, and NOT fill the flaw on the visor prior to?

Actually, that "slick red finish" was easy. Fixing the visor was not.

As I mentioned, the paint is One Shot and that's how it comes out straight from the airbrush with no polishing or any of that fooling around. So I didn't go to any great lengths at all. :)

The tire burn on the visor was much worse than what's left of it and I only have so much patience for filling and sanding and such and since this is "just" a shelf model, built for my own amusement, it's good enough.

Great looking Model A. Just picked up a few of these myself. One even has a tire burn in the roof so I can relate.
