very nice work!!
Speaking of old Monogram kits, how cool would it be to see the '30, '34, '36 Fords, the '40 Ford Pickup, the "Little Deuce" '32, ect with all the original/optional parts??

Beautiful '50's color too!!
Amazing how carmakers back than had such a vision of what the future of the car might be. I would like to see fins return on cars (not that wild though).............I REALLY would love to see the return of the 4dr hardtop! That was a '50's idea that had all but disappeared by the '70's!

KHart, you asked about the color. I shot Tamiya pure white spray over Tamiya pearl light blue spray. I wasn't able to find out much about the original color, except that it was an off white pearl with a little blue tint. I think Ford called it 'ice blue pearl', or something like that.
Here's one of the better photos I found:

Tom, that is a great build. I always dislike the "bad mayonnaise green" you see on this car too often. A pearl blue-white like stars in the sky is much closer to what the Futura was meant to evoke. Now I need to work on mine.
Here's a view not often seen
and a B&W of it in red, plus a sad pic of it @ Barris' in Hollywood.
