Thanks for the replies. I know about the Lindburg kit. I have built them before. I was just wondering if this kit had better detail than the Lindburg kit. I probably should have phrased that differently. I think I might just pic one up anyway.
Since there is no room for exhaust manifolds, let alone headers, with the 1/24 resin engine, Im building the supplied 427. If I can get it to set a bit higher, I'm sure it will look ok. I deepened all the panel lines, and sanded off the emblems, then sprayed the body with MM Ford Wimbledon White lacquer. Hope to clear it tomorrow.
Looking nice. Love the old Fords!!! One thing though, and I just had this same problem with my 66 Fairlane. The carbs are backwards. The primaries are on the rear of the carbs, and the diaphragm that actuates the secondaries should've on the passenger side of the carbs. On the Fairlane, they attach with the tabs. I just sanded the tabs off and switched them.
I tried both transmissions. The kit supplied four speed, and the big C6 resin automatic. Both transmissions fit in nicely, but I believe I will go with the auto, due to the nice detailed resin trans pan. The door panels really don't seem like a problem either. With this out of the way, this doesn't seem like a bad kit after all.
