    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

    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

    None of my models roll, not since I had a 1/8 big deuce rolled off a shelf and fell 6 feet to disaster onto the floor.

    Hi, John, I have built one of these, they are great kits everything fits as it should. The only problem I have is that the correct steering wheel is not available.
