  1. Maxx Sorry about that, I may need new glasses! Tont
  2. Maxx What year of Thundbird and what engine type, like 1957-312 or 1965-390. This will help other members find what you need. Tony
  3. Jim I started a 60 wagon like yours and I found that the parts from the AMT kit wiill work. But the windsheild is to narrow for the wagon. The chassic is also to short, this a wagon and may correct. I cut the hood out and found the underhood fenders are almost their but there is a gap that need to filled. The grill fits which is surprising and I think the custom grills from the AMT 53 Ford pickup will also fit. Tony
  4. I am building a 61 Olds wagon for the NNL, hopefully I will get done. I started with a Joh-Han kit I've had for years. The look I am going for is a old Surf wagon you could see in the 60s or 70s, you know a rusty cheap wagon or truck to get you down the beach and go surfing. But I shooting for today's Patina look with some upgrades with new wheels and maybe a bigger engine. I used the salt paint treatment and pick a two tone paint job. I don't think Olds had a two tone paint job that was stock. But I love the look and with chrome Pegasus low rider rims to fill the wheel wells out it has the old surfing feel. This is my first time using the salt paint treatment, so any suggestion to add to what I have done so far is fine. Tony
  5. Hey Does anyone know, if there are Finned Cal Custom valve covers for the small block Ford 289 or 302. I am hoping to build a Ford in a Ford with a some old school flair, all I can find is the Cobra ones. I have lots of 32 ford kits with a small block ford in them and I found that they fit well into the 61 Ranchero. They also look better then the big block chevy that came in the kit. Tony
  6. Darren The New Mexico state fair still has a model car display, Wow thats where I got the bug to building model cars when I was a kid in the 60's. There must have been over a hundred model cars there behind the glass neat. Tony
  7. It looks like the 60 Corvette from the animated movie Heavy Metal. When the corvette come in from outer space and lands with astronaut at the wheel.
  8. How about a dully, you could use the rear fenders from the 56 ford. Use the wheels and tires from the Monogram dully Truck. I never seen one built, you could be the first. But a nose in the air Gasser would really cool too. Tony
  9. Zachary You should do a test spray with the clear on something you don't care about. The clear may make the sharpie ink run. Tony
  10. Len The 69 Firebird hardtop comes with a convertible boot, This should fit a Camaro, they are basically the same car. I have one if you want it? Tony
  11. Wow I miss the preview button , I have not post images for a while.
  12. Hi I started an old MPC Chevy years ago with the goal of building a late 50s Hot Rod, but not a flathead Ford, just to be different. I Z'd the kit frame and added a model A rear spring cradle to the rear and set up the front with a single leaf for a drop straight axles. I dropped it down to get a low mean look. I chopped the top and raised the drive line tunnel. I am going to use a Chevy stovebolt six with old speed parts from the 51 Chevy kit. http://i958.photobucket.com/albums/ae70/car-guy/32%20Cheys/e9fcc647-5096-463b-acc9-3292d617de44_zpsz8ycexov.jpg]Any suggestions are welcome.Tony
  13. Mike Great start to a neat build, makes me want to build one also. if you do go small block Ford, the 302 in the Revell 32 kit fits very well uder the Falcon hood.
