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.
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!

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

Great looking model. I just picked up one from Hobby Lobby yesterday and love the features of the kit.

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.
