    59 Ford Skyliner retractable - built last year
    I built this Revell Skyliner last May, and never posted it here. It's a repop of the old 1960's kit with the multi-piece body, and it was not real easy to build. The body gave me no problems, but the top had some fit issues. I took it off twice and did some sanding and filing to get it close to being right. The paint is Krylon. I don't remember the color name, but it looked very 50's-ish, so I used it. I attempted to build one of these kits in the 60's, when I was a teenager, and gave up on it. I think I put gas in it and burned it - did that to many of my crappy models back then!

    UPDATE: I added a Meyers Manx to the diorama. Looks like a close race!


    The Manx is a resin body mixed with a chassis and parts from an old 1960's Manx kit.

    Nice! I like the wheels and the wood bed floor. The flared exhaust tips are a nice touch, too!

    Very cool racer, Gary. I have a set of those wheels on my Pinewood car from 1960. It won the first Pinewood Derby held in our town back then. I've taken it to a couple recent derbies to show the kids. They get a kick out of seeing it. Here's a pic.
