I've been looking this model for a very long time. I found this one on ebay at a very reasonable price. This one was finished in Testors Bright Aqua Pearl, very close to a color offered by Lincoln in 68. 2 coats of Wet Look clear topped it off. The interior is matching and the windows were lightly tinted with Tamiya's Clear Blue. The BMF on this one was tedious on the top of the fenders. I'm happy with the end results. As an owner of a 69 Continental, this is an excellent kit if you can find.

Let me know what you think.

Thank you,

Al

Great model!  I seem to recall seeing more of these on the street back in the day than Caddys?

Nice. You know I love those suicide door Lincolns. I had to sell off my '68 last year, but I still have most of my other ones. I plan to build a replica of my Dad's '66, which was White, with a Burgundy interior.

I love these Lincolns and you did a beautiful job! From doing a 65 I know the fender-top foil is very difficult but you did it perfectly. Brilliant.

Thanks everyone. I like building these kits from my early years. I just wish I could find a 69 Conti.

Looks like you could get in it and drive (sedately) away.  Great work!

Thank you. Speaking mob cars, my 69 Continental had room for 10 bodies and still had room for the spare :lol:
