AMT '62 Catalina built pretty much out of the box except for the wheels, tires, and brakes which are from a Revell '32 Ford. This is a pretty well engineered kit which went together well. I had a little trouble with the final assembly but eventually it all went together. If accuracy is important to you, the paint detailing could be a bit of work. I tried to do the tri-color interior but didn't like the results. I did it over and settled for a two-tone which was good enough for me.
Thanks for looking, KB

Great clean build! The interior looks like you could crawl in and drive away! The magazine on the seat is a nice touch.

Great paint and engine detail, too!

Thanks for all the kind comments everybody.  The magazine on the front seat is a photocopy of a Hot Rod mag from 1962.  In it there is a full page ad for the '62 Catalina touting the various options available to everyman up to the ultimate - the 421 SD package.
