Beautiful build Sam. I love the period perfect color & the whitewalls look beter than what normally comes in a kit. Your foil work is first rate!

Awesome build! The Celery is just about right on! Love the wide white and the skirts on it too. This is how I plan to do mine, but I guess I won't use the same color. (I was actually going to). Perhaps a two tone green will do.

Cleanly done. I like that a lot. Reshoot that puppy willya? I want to see the interior.

 

G

Wayne, here's a pic of the interior during the build.

Those decals went on easily, and I like the look of them.

 

Pharoah, the skirts are from an old AMT 57 Ford from the 1960's. I shortened them a little.

Very nice looking '57 Ford Sam! One of the best looking ones I've seen yet! I really like the color on it and the fender skirts are a perfect touch. Well done!

Thanks, everyone for the nice compliments.  I really appreciate them, especially the ones on my foil work. I'm new to the BMF world. This Ford is only about the fifth model I've ever foiled - always used silver paint before. Thanks again!

Sam

Nice job Sam!  It really looks right in that color.  The interior decals look just right too.

Awesome build!! I'm assuming you scratch-built the skirts.... tell us how you did them? I'm building a '58 GMC extended cab pickup, and I want to make skirts for it.....

Anthony, the skirts are from an old AMT 57 Ford from the 1960's. I shortened them by about 1/4".

That looks good, Sam. Who makes an acrylic paint marker? I'm definitely interested in trying that for WWWs and possibly narrow-whites, too.

Charlie, The marker is called a "Painters" opaque  marker made by Elmer's, the white glue people. It doesn't actually say it's acrylic on the marker. I assumed it was, since Elmer's glue products are all water based. I think I got it at Walmart.
