If you happen to have the chassis assembly for 1966 Ford Fairlane 427 by AMT model # 6180. Bought the one I have on line and it is missing the sub assembly 'C" , the springs, inner left and right fenders, and also the firewall, spindles as well both L&R. I hope you can help me with this problem. If not I might have to resort to just buying a sealed kit on the bay
I've done this kit and let me tell you I hope you have better luck at getting the body to sit correctly on the undercarriage!
I ruined one kit, ended up building another, Still had problems, so I had to do some serious slicing and dicing to get it to sit correctly! Thing still looks like it is a 4x4!
I built one of these a couple of years ago...man, I had fits getting the interior to fit right with the body! Finally ended up slicing and dicing to MAKE it fit!
Yepper, too bad that no one has ever done the 03-04 cobra's! I even wrote to Revell and asked them to manufacture a kit. Got back an answer that they couldn't get the rights for it from the blue oval people!
At least I got an answer even if it isn't what I wanted to hear!
You can always go with Tamiya TS-13.It's back on the market.Just be aware that you have to apply it within 30 minutes of applying a color coat or wait AT LEAST 30 days if you don't catch the 30 minute window.If you fail to follow the guidelines the color coat will crack under the clear due to different solvent evaporation rates of the color and the clear coat.
The next suggestion would be to use Testor One Coat(non one coat) clear.It sprays out thicker from the can than TS-13 but there are no cracking issues and can be applied over decals without the worry of destroying them(unlike TS-13).
I just did a 66 Fairlane with Testor's one coat clear, came out very nicely if I say so myself. Did it over Testors 1833 White Lightening. She shines nicely!
