I built this Galaxie from the AMT Styline kit.
I'm the kind of guy that drives a 1974 Galaxie, loves cars the way they left the factory, and loves all cars as long as they are Ford V8s.
I already KNEW that cars built up to the mid 70s were the only real cars in my book, and never could care less about the plastic pieces of you know what they are building today, but never thought how much I like to build simple kits.
I never liked super detailing nothing, and even adding spark plug wires is a pain for me, so I really, really LOVED this AMT '61 Galaxie. The chassis is just one piece, you have too use paint to detail it. There are two metal axles for the wheels. There is no engine. The model was born from the same molds that gave birth to my beloved dealer promos of the 60s.
The build started on Friday, and I finished her today. The paint is automotive urethane and two part clear. The color was mixed to represent the factory color of Laurel Green, even tough my digital camera can't do it justice, and I think I'll have to take some shots with my old Zenith camera and have the film developed to get the real color, just like in the good old days, when cars were really cars!!!
