Aaron_F added a topic in Drag Racing Models1950 Ford Coupe Gasser-WIPMy current build was starting to annoy me, so I decided to work on some other stalled projects instead, but lost interest in them quickly. I decided I needed to start a fresh build, and this '49 Ford seems to fit the bill. I bought the kit from a member of the Scale Auto forum a few years ago. The body had radiused wheelwells, shaved drip rails and shortened side trim when I bought it.
I'm using the stock control arm suspension instead of a straight axle, for a more "home built" look. It will have the blown Cadillac from the kit and a '50 grille. The slicks are those crappy AMT Goodyear Bluestreaks (I managed to find two that didn't have the hole off center). This is going to be a circa '66-'68 gasser, so they were necessary. The front tires are AMT Firestones. The front wheels are from the double dragster and the rear wheels are from the '60 Starliner kit. The paint will probably be candy green.

Aaron_F added a topic in On The Workbench1965 Mercury '60's CustomI started this recently, but haven't had much time to work on it. It's an original 1965 AMT kit, and i'm going to replicate the box art as closely as possible. I'm just starting to sand the putty and get it ready for paint.
This wasn't mint in the box when I started, it had been built many years ago but not painted. I decided to replicate the box because it already had that rectangular "continental" grille glued on.
Thanks for looking!
