    The convertible kit had  lots of cutom parts.
    The coupe was more of a 3n1 with a Cadillac engine and a few custom parts.
    Both are nice kits..

    The convertible is a 50  and the coupe is a 49......for a start.

    I had both eyes done last year...colors are much more vivid and for the first time in 60+ years I no longer need glasses except for reading things close up.
    I've worn glasses since I was 3 years old and could never read anything with out them.....I couldn't be more pleased.
    It was also painless...a real bonus!

    as above ..
    .Elmer's glue or very thin flat white paint look much better than chrome to me,but niether look as good as separate clear lenses unfortunately.

    nicely done...

    The F100 is from the early '60's and the 53 convertible was first done in the mid '90's by Lindberg.
    Both great kits...done 30 years apart even tho they're both '53s.

    Looks like the parts from thier 30 coupe kit are now in the 29 roadster kit...interesting approach to "updating" a kit.
    but I hope that doesn't mean the coupe body was "lost".....
