Just finished this AMT '62 Thunderbird.
The car was painted in Cascade Green, a '62 'Bird original color, and is box stock, with the exception of the tires. The ones that came in the kit are that ugly (at least for me) BFGs with white wall inserts that AMT puts on it's new tooling kits, so I ditched those in favor of some older Firestones also from AMT, with hand painted white lines. Other than that, I just aded paint and foil.
The kit also comes with a tonneau cover, but I really didn't like the way it makes the 'Bird to look like, so I kept it out.
Hope you like the result, and thanks for looking!!

The body painted and cleared. No polishing was needed aother than a soft rubbing on the hood, and that only because a insect landed on it.
The underside of the unibody painted:
The body foiled:
The interior foiled:
