  1. Thanks everybody for the kind words.
  2. Finished this a while back. Basically built box stock errrrr almost. The grill and taillights are custom made as are the traction bars. The paint is Testors one coat Emerald Green with Tamiya Bright White Stripes. The white letters are Goffer decals. Nice kit over all. The only problems I had were my over thinking certain things during the build. LOL Anyway, that is all. On to the pics.
  3. As many issues as I have of this kit including the newest release, I have yet to build it. LOL! Looks great in that color. Great job!
  4. These are the only ones I have. I didn't bother wiring the motor as I didn't plan on displaying it with the hood open. Still like the way it looks when built.
  5. Thanks everybody! Steve Mason Nice build! Hope to do the AMT version soon.
  6. I used Bare Metal Foil for all the chrome. The ford script on the front was foiled before paint then tapped off and buffed till it came through.
  7. This was a real fun build. I wanted to do the car like a person would have done it in the mid to late 60's. I always have had a love for street machines and when a buddy of mine clued me into a project he was doing it gave me a bit of a boost to get rolling with this one. So I grabbed a set of wheels, tires and a dash mounted tach and away I went. The whole project took 3 weeks to do and was painted using Tamiya paints. The clear however is Testors one coat. I made the flat taillights using clear plastic and shot them with Tamiya clear red. Having built this kit as a Kustom back when it was first issued, I knew what to expect along the way. Overall, I am very pleased with the results and would definitely recommend this kit to anyone looking to do a 57 ford.
  8. I used Tamiya Tape. So easy to work with and leaves a smooth line.
