What is the correct color to paint the body?  I looked at my local hobby shop, but couldn't find anything close.

1953 Cadillac Pastorial Blue. Nothing in the hobby shop is close out of the can/bottle, but Testors Light Blue lightened with some white would probably be a decent match if you airbrush.

I used Testors Duck Egg Blue. It is a military color and it was pretty close to the original box art. I used Testors clears since the paint is a flat military color, but, it has since yellowed pretty good. 

 

I heard Cobra Colors used to make it, but, I don't know does it now.

Nice comparison and pics, Jess, thanks.

 

I hope you're not planning to drink that can of New Coke, though!  :D

The very first issue (circa 1968) of the '33 Willys had bodycolor styrene molded front and rear tires (rather than black vinyl molded tires.)  They were nicely done and somewhat unique in shape/diameter from the more normal AMT Trophy Series tires back then.   TIM .

MCW still sells it- $6.50 for the 1oz. container. Though you'd still need an airbrush for that, might be the best course of action for those of us who aren't the best at mixing our own colors. :D

Here's what it looks like painted in MCW '53 Cadillac Pastoral Blue.  This one was completed around five years ago using the Rodder's Journal article as the key reference.  It also contains the correct, original issue styrene molded tires.  17 more photos including detail shots at this link....   http://public.fotki....sers/page2.html

 

Thanks for looking...TIM

Does the kit have the "Powered by Ford" decals? Mine came with decals, but the "Powered By Ford" logos are gone. Wonder what happened.

This is the decal sheet Round2 shows on their 'site for the kit:

It has the "Powered by" part, but no Ford blue ovals.  Since it's not a Ford car, they don't get Ford licensing now.  Same goes for kits with other engines, like the 392 Chrysler in the Revell 32 5-window, it's not called a "Hemi" or "Chrysler", the SBC in the Stacy David car isn't called a Chevy, The Olds in the AMT 40 Willys isn't an Olds, etc....

The decals in the box does not include the "Powered by Ford" decals as advertised on thier website!

 

This is a case of false advertising

When I built mine with the resin stock height roof, I believe I used the decals from Fred Cady and also Slixx.

Yes, where are you seeing them?  The whole thing is airbrushed out of the box art photo, and you do get the "Powered by" part [not shown] to use if you have some spare blue ovals from another kit.  So you actually get more decals than they advertise...

OH SNAP that was cool....I posed this question to Round 2 after I posted here and I got the following from them..
 

Hi Scott,

 

On the final product we could not use the “Ford” logos. Unfortunately we did not realize we had the original copy of the decals shown on the website. We will be updating the website to reflect the correct decal sheet. I am very sorry for the confusion.

 

Doug Ridge

Customer Service

 

 

He must have changed the image on the site after I queried them on this! They removed the "Powered by Ford " logos!

 

WOW!
