Been a while, had to take a break due to buying a new house. All moved in and set up with my new shop/office and ready to build again. Here's the first quickie done. AMT promotional bought off the 'Bay. Took it apart, cleaned it, interior is done in white and black, roof was shot in white enamel gloss, body is original Florentine Green, buffed out, and applied BMF. Front bumper is done in Spaz-Stix.

Excellent! I can remember playing with those promos when I was growing up.

Really nice model.

 

I much prefer the roof on the 64/65 to the 66 so I have the same promo and will give it a similar treatment one day. They still sell for reasonable money if you're not too fussy about condition.

 

This is a 62 that I restored last year...

Very sharp T-Bird Alan.........I LOVE those colors! Your bumpers look good done in the Spaz Stix......I have that paint but could never get it to come out right. I guess it takes some practice to make it appear well.

Alan and Peter, both very nice Thunderbirds. Thunderbird is still by far my favorite Ford. Love them all from 1955 through 1979.

Very nice, Al. How did you like working with Spaz-Stix? That bumper came out really well, and I might try it in lieu of re-chroming.

Thanks guys! 

@ Charlie- I like using the Spaz-Stix. I use it in a aerosol, strip the old chrome, sand any mold lines out smooth, de-grease really well, prime, shoot gloss black enamel, and I hit one light coat of Spaz-Stix outside in the sun. I've found it comes out best for me like that, but may vary with different folks. Much cheaper and quicker than re-chroming, and I actually feel it looks more realistic.
