I wish you guys could see the color better, but it seems to change a bit from picture to picture. I think it's this new camera I got, that I still don't know how to operate properly.

It may not have ended up the color you originally intended to paint it, but I think it worked out in your favor. In addition to making it look like that car just rolled off the assembly line, that icy blue paint just makes it pop

 

I also love the way you maximize every little detail on these old kits (see firewall).  Congratulations on yet another eye-catching build.

This is bordering on perfect, I don't want to believe this a quickie build. It would take me months to build to such a high standard ( if I could achieve it at all). Keep 'em coming!

I think Ford is in recycling colors. I did some comparing, and the Viking Blue is almost the same color as my '82 Galaxie, that is Jamaica Blue:

Terrific paint and foil work! An excellent example of how to build a old school kit.

It's weird looking at a '66 Galaxie and thinking of it as an '82. What engine does it have?

Another beauty, Tulio! Great finish! I always like that roofline on those old Fords! Nice work!

The engine is a 302 small block and the tranny is a C-4 auto.

I never really liked that kit. You made it into something worthy of all awe. Incredible build!!! I had to look twice to distinguish it from a real car. Great photos of an incredible build!!! :)
