    Thanks, guys! Your comments are much appreciated.
    Bill, the tape I use to outline the scallops is 3M Scotch black opaque photographic tape. Cut in thin strips against a steel rule. I've had this roll since the '80s!

    Thanks, guys! I'm glad I decided to do the top of the dash at the last minute, gives it more of that custom look.

    Down to Tijuana for Some Tuck 'n Roll
    A lot of guys build customs in Southern California would take their cars to Tijuana for inexpensive, quality upholstery. So I thought I'd modify the original interior of this old kit to reflect that trend and add some eye-appeal to a not-very-detailed part of the model. I marked out the spacing then scribed lines for the "tucks," and carved the "rolls" with a #16 Xacto blade.

     
    I also did the usual paint detailing on the chassis. Tamiya Flat Black spray, with Liquitex Glossies black on the suspension with a touch of Aqua on the rear shocks. Engine and trans are One Shot Orange lettering enamel.  Good old Testors Silver on the mufflers, and mixed with Flat Black for the rest of the exhaust.

    Revell Kurtis Midget Paint Job for a Friend
    Did this for Joe Sander, a fellow member of the Silent Traffic club. His uncle used to race a Kurtis/Offenhauser midget that has since been restored and is in a local museum. After I did a similar job on his large scale GMP diecast midget Joe asked me to do the same treatment on the 1/25 Revell kit. A bit more of a challenge, but it came out OK.

    Beautiful work as always, Mr. Cruz!

    Really well done model!
    Great representation of the classic "stinkbug stance." Those shackles had to be one of the more ridiculous modification fads of the late '60s-'70s. Cars like this were everywhere, but my favorite example is this '73 Fury featured in a crazy sequence in the movie "Thunderbolt & Lightfoot."

    Ouch! Hope you recover quickly and completely!
    Great project!

    Just picked up the kit over the weekend. Body looks reasonably close to the 1/1 to my eye.
    The frame in my kit is pretty twisted though. Anybody found this in theirs? Hoping it'll straighten out with some judicious tweaking...

    Period perfect and beautifully done!

    Excellent work, Steven!
  12. John Goschke added a post in a topic AMT 1960 Ford Thunderbird Convertible   

    Great project, Ron! I'm looking forward to following along. You're right, this kit along with the T-bird hardtop, the '60 Buicks and the '60 Corvettes, were the first AMT annuals with engines and opening hoods. What I really like about the T-bird kit, is that it has a manual transmission! A relatively rare choice for that car!
    In addition, what AMT's Squarebirds lack in detail over Monogram's 24th scale kit, they more than make up for with a much more accurate overall appearance.

    Nice work on this one, David!
    Ride height looks good. Maybe it's the photo angle but it appears that the front axle is too far back. Is that a result of the fit issue you're having?
    Also, the track width on this kit seems too wide.

    That looks great! I think you've sold me on this kit!
