I heard years ago, somebody took this crude little motorized Arri T-Bird kit...

And converted it into a Lincoln Mark IV. I was wondering- has anybody else seen it, or know who built it and where one could find a picture or two of it?

Yeah- I've seen that one, and it is indeed 'crud'! :lol: I'd almost think I could scratchbuild a better looking Mark V on my own!

The car was on the cover of Car Modeler some years ago- but I can't seem to find any other info on it besides that. Does anybody have a copy of the issue in question?

There is another master out there and the Quality is top notch, but I don'think they are casting any right know.

?? Yes , thats why I posted the 71 to use the frame and engine for the 77 resin. 77 is the closes to the Conti, with a little modifications that 77 T bird resin will come very close to the Continental

A Lincoln Mark IV/V is something I'd definitely buy if someone started to cast one or mold one. I'd build my Mk. IV to match Canon's car...that light green with the green vinyl top and interior.

Around here, there used to be a Mark V in a pretty turquoise color; I think it had a white/blue interior. I'd build something like that.

Also, that Arii kit is huge. Scales out to about 1/22 scale.

Yea, I know the 1/1 cars were big too but that kit is no where near 1/24.

Yeah- the thing is GIGANTIC!!!! The Model King '71 body will almost fit inside it!
