Just a minor diversion from the heavy duty concentration work required for the Super Seven, been tinkering with this almost for a month a few minutes or an hour at a time a few times a week.
Tamiya Camel Yellow, it's pretty loud in the direct sun...
And it is an original AMT kit, that's what they are for, building, at least to me...

I like the color too Mark..........it suits it really well!
It's hard to believe I can remember this car back when it was new ('73) I was in Junior High school or something like that back then. :mrgreen:
I know what you mean about the heavy duty detailing............I've put the '55 Ford on hiatus for awhile so I can concentrate on less intense builds. It's a relief for me to get something completed for a change!

Einstein said everything was relative. Your "minor diversion" already looks better than our "heavy duty" projects...
Looking great. I agree with you. They are meant to be built...

That engine is being replaced by something else, that will have the turbo. Not a 4 cylinder even.
And I'm back to work on the 7 so I have no idea when this little pup will be done, like soooo many other projects I always seem to have the energy to start...

Also because of design similarities I have plans to make an Opel GT model into more of a mini 275 GTB, giving it a bit of Italian flavor :shock:

Hmmm, a German car built to look like an American icon converted to look like an Italian icon...
Would it get a prancing calf on the fender?
