The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well. k den
Trim was Evergreen Styrene. It was a major job scribing the hood open as the 1958 plastic was very think and hard. A brasstube an brass rod became a hood hinge. It took 2 Ranchero kits. The roof needed to be lengthened. You can see where the red and blue kit parts are mated together. Revell inner fender wells were glued to the underneath of the AMT front clip. The wheels are 1970s AMT Street Rods parts from 1964 Impala (1973 issue) Tires are skinny Revell Goodyears painted whitewalls. Fortunately the headlights in the AMT 1958 Ford were not glued in. I did not destroy a mint 1958 Ford Sunliner!
Ford decided not to use the 1958 station wagon tail lights so it was easier to use old Ranchero kit. Roof was wrong so I extended it ( Revell used 4dr front doors.) Wimbelton white and some red that I can not remember.
It was from a automotive magazine back in the day. Had pictures of production at AMT. My point was to illustrate that the model business is not the same . There was more money back then to roll out new kits. "3000 models/day" Rod and Custom August 1964
