Beautiful, do you remember how you did the scripts on the rear quarters ? I have a 59 Galaxie I want to redo.

This is really a beautiful model. This built kit is a gem because it will never warp like the acetate promo version.

 

Some people like the car without skirts, but these really look good.

This is such a pretty build of a car that has been so overlooked and today, there are so few left. Your car looks SO stock, natural and good in those colors! I think that you made the right choice to leave it as it is. I really do love those late 50's Fords.

Thanks for the comments, guys!

Thanks, Robert. The script and other emblems were added later using a set of photoetched pieces for the '57-'58 Ford sold by Mark "The Putty Thrower" Gustavson. They were advertised in an early issue (1979 or '80?) of Model Car Journal or Scale Auto Enthusiast.

 

I think Model Car Garage has a set for '57 Fords but your '59 Galaxie would use different parts. I don't know if they have a set for the '59 Fords.
