1964 Falcon Futura
Posted 11 June 2012 - 10:35 AM
This is a Yat Ming 1:18 Falcon. When this car came out, I did a series of them in different forms. I used a resin tear drop hood and 427 fender flags that I make, a resin 427 SOHC engine that is sold as a Christmas tree ornament, and the wheels and front and rear frame clips from a Hot Wheels Thunderbird.
Roll cage is Plastruct rod, seats are from the T-bird, some aluminum tubing, sheet styrene, misc parts box items, headliner from thin card board, BMF around the windows. Paint was a hassle to strip, I don't know what they use, but it's THICK and took several applications of Jasco with coarse steel wool. New paint is Krylon orange from the can. I didn't go overboard with details, these are fun quick builds usually done standing at the (real) car shop work bench.

I have a few of these stashed away for future mods.
Thanks for sharing.

That engine was meant to be a Christmas ornament? I'm shopping at the wrong stores....
Chuck, There were a few different engines made like this. I made some resin transmissions to go on them so they could be used in cars.
Are those hoods for sale someplace?

Front plate made in the most old-school of ways: cut from a magazine.
I'll post some more diecast rebuilds in the next few days.

I love this Falcon!! Im working on 1 myself right now, doing a pro-touring look. I would love to get my hands on 1 of those hoods & some of those emblems. Do you offer the fender badges in SOHC or just a 427 version? Again, great falcon.
Sounds great, keep us updated. The fender badges are the regular 427 style. The hood kit comes with the badges and a piece of photoetch mesh to make the air outlet screens.
