    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. If it doesn't, I'll push the maintenance back to Saturday, 2 December.

    Dig it out and try super glue mixed to a paste with talcum powder, I use this all the time on resin.

    Hi, did you actually get the sloper body and all that other stuff from our friend in OZ. He must have decided to honour his commitments. Amazing.

    Hi Pat, who are you buying the kit from in OZ


  13. Frank added a post in a topic Attention Canadian modelers   

    Hi Misha, in Australia Ford used the same body from
    55 to 59, that's the reason they used the Canadian Meteor grill as a facelift in 58 and 59.

    56 to 55 Ford conversion
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     I am attempting to convert an AMT 56 ford to a 55, I have a "55 grill" from the Revell Jukebox Ford that I had cast in resin and am
    modifying it to represent a stock grill. I also have RHD dash that is being modified to suit. 
     

    Chrome grill as supplied for the jukebox Ford


    I am starting to modify the casting to a stock grill, next to is to remove the bumper, is too high.


    Then some more modifying to do on the dash, which was a 56.

    If this turns out ok, I have an Aussie 56 ute I will have a go at turning into a 58 Star model.


    More pics as I get more done.

    Cheers.................Frank

    Attention Canadian modelers
    I am at the moment trying to replicate an Australian 1958 Ford Ute that owned some years ago. as these used the same grill as the
    1955 Canadian Ford Meteor, I was wondering if anyone does them in resin.
    Cheers...............Frank
