My son sent me a 1/16 scale 55 thunderbird kit that he found. I'm not sure if it's all there as the parts are almost all off of the trees. I think it needs a windshield frame, and it has the custom wire wheels and tires, but not the stock wheels and tires. My problem is that it's also missing the instructions. I need those to see what's actually supposed to be with it and what's missing. Does anybody have some instructions that they'd be willing to post? TIA

Do you have any idea the brand? The instructions may be posted on-line already:

Kodiak, did you ever get those instructions? I have a 55 and 57. If you still need them just post a reply whenever you see this and I'll get them scanned and posted. BTW, the windshield frame is almost always broken in these kits due to the big flimsy box. I bought and resold several of them before getting a couple that weren't too bad. Haven't looked at them for a while, one may not be broken at all. One of these days I'll build them.
