In Topic: 1/25 Revell Ford Del Rio Ranch Wagon 2'n'1

:D  :) Is that a sedan guard, or a wagon/Ranchero/Courier guard? Did you mean the bumper guard didn't exist, or the angels? Wait, what?  :lol:  ;)

I'm hoping additional versions of the tool could be a Ranchero or Courier. So tooling bumper with short guards wold be beneficial. Front bumpers had tall guards like rest of line if they had them. 

Here's 2 pics of very basic cars, 300 level trim, with short rear guards. I have only found 1 picture of wagon with no rear guards, and have found wagons with no front guards and tiny rear ones. 

BTW, I was wrong about 58, but these are the weirdest little bumper guards I've ever seen.

Link below to 223 6 powered wagon with usual rear guards.

In Topic: Looking for glue bombs!

Despite the negative trend here about this segment of the hobby I find restoring old "glue bombs" challenging, educational, fun and rewarding. Sure, it's a lot of work but the feeling of satisfaction after bringing back what a lot of modelers might consider junk is unbeatable. I can highly recommend doing one if that's what you want to do. Only then will you know if it's for you or not.

Good luck in your search for a good starting point.

Nice work! Definitely a body style that's been missing in form.
