  2. Another Ford Fairlane 57, AMT, coral blue

    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!

    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.

    Thanks everybody! Steve Mason Nice build! Hope to do the AMT version soon.

    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.
  6. '57 Ford Custom Street Machine

    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.

    I used Tamiya Tape. So easy to work with and leaves a smooth line.

    Thanks Guys! I was going to add more shots but the space is limited and the files are big

    Got this finished up the other day. Loved building it. And, it was my first time actually spraying the rally stripes. I have tried decals in the past with major failures. I used Dupli-Color for the first primer coat to see and body work that was needed. after wet sanding and drying I shot it with Tamiya primer followed with Tamiya's Bright White. After sitting for a few days I masked off and shot the Tamiya Bright Orange color coat followed by Testors Wet Look Clear. I built it pretty much out of the box with the exception of the wheels. I wanted to go with a more period look. Anyway, enough babbling...

    Thanks Guys!

    I agree plus, I could never seem to get them in place without cracking or just falling apart. Even with the solvent.
