This is a Revell/Monogram 55 Ford I've build few years ago. I made front and rear rolled pans and converted the kit interior to tuck'n roll using Plastruct styrene sheet.

Steering wheel is from Monogram 58 T-bird and gear stick is a pin. Taillights are from AMT 49 Mercury.

Engine is from Monogram 58 T-bird. Blower, carbs and aircleaners are from my parts box. I painted those with Alclad chrome.

Wheels and tires are from AMT Black Force snapper. Paint is Revell of Germany Car Metallic enamel.

Great build of a beautiful truck. How did you do the gauge cluster? Is that photo etch? Looks real good.

This is one of the those builds that's just...right. Color, stance, build quality, details. It all adds up. Nice job.
