    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. If it doesn't, I'll push the maintenance back to Saturday, 2 December.

I have to thank Nick Pepe of "T-Birds by Nick" in Van Nuys, CA, for his helpful advice in getting the details right. I used Tamiya "Coral Blue" spray, which was an early '90s Leyton House Formula1 car color. It's a bit darker than Ford's Chalfonte Blue of that year, but it works, especially with a vintage 'Bird. It wasn't available on the Roadster, and I wish AMT had included wheel covers and fender skirts, as I would have built it that way. The beauty of modeling is that we can take artistic license and make it the way we like.
