looks as if i have started another one before finishing anything...oh well. AMT 61 ranchero. not the best kit as far as detail, but in my opinion has a very nice body. tempted to glue the hood shut cuz the engine kinda sucks too, but decided to build it up any way. paint is testors one coat lime ice...still needs clear. wheels are 3 bar spinners from modelhaus and tires i think are from the 49 merc kit. here is where im at so far.

that looks sweet and right up the avenue i wanted to go one of these days. i saw a really kool falcon 2 door at NNL West this year, and it really struck me. some of that came from a real nice subtle fog job but also the lake pipes, bullet taillights, i think it was probably shaved and handles removed, and it just sat really nice. yours should be approaching that as it moves along, you got a great start on it. i dont think i would glue the hood shut; if you dont like the mo try another one. personally i would lean toward a ford 6 of the era and maybe put some kinda cheap looking "speed" equipment on it...and then an open header to give it the "right sound"!

i really want to build a falcon delivery van though...might have to go hunting for a resin body.

kool kar, keep it up!
