    Sorry about the mess up Dave. 
    You guys both did great, and have being priceless inspiration for me over the years.
    The black and red car impressed me a lot as I was afraid of trying a black paint job. That car gave me the will to give it a try. 
    I built a green car to "copy" that box art the first time I got that kit (and it was a very poor job at it...). I have to get around to restore that model, as she got badly damaged when I moved (the box she was in got crushed and the front of the roof had a close encounter with the steering wheel and dash). I think I can fix her just making new pillars up front, and covering the fix with new foil, but every time I look at the wreck... Well you know what I mean. 
    By the way, do you know who built the Raven Black  and Inca Gold Fairlane on the box top of newer reissues of that kit? That is one of my favorite color combos for 1957. Just behind Inca Gold and Colonial.

    As soon as I saw that front end on the new release box, I thought right away I would use the center piece of the '53 Chevy Bel Air on the middle of that. I would make it longer by combining two pieces. It could even be converted to accept an additional headlight at each end.

    Ford guy ere, but that four door Chevy was killer. A LOT better looking than the two door versions, posted or hardtops.

    Thanks!
    No, the doors were very straight forward to build. No problems there, what is kind of what I expected based on the many AMT '57 Fords I built and the couple of '58 Impalas. 
    I wouldn't do a glass top, as I don't really like the looks the chrome crown gives the Crown Victoria Starliner.

    Loved the red.

    AMT 1956 Ford Vicky kit: 75 Reais.
    Automotive paint, reducer, modeling paints, household foil, brushes, Tamiya tape, Revell glue, Loctite super glue, etc: 60 Reais.
    Having the guy that inspired your builds since forever praising one of them: PRICELESS!!!

    Thanks again gents!!
    Thank you!! 
    Well, technically it's not box stock, if you consider the licence plate decals were not provided by AMT. I print my own, as I use Brazilian plates to pretend the car is mine

    She's a beauty!!!
    Also loved your work for the box art of the '57 Ford. That red a black beauty inspired me more than I can say in words.  
    My very first foil job was on a '64 Impala, that was also the very first model I painted with a rattle can. Before that I used to ruin them with a brush...
    It was circa 1990/1991... I have to dig it up someday. It's inside it's box somewhere in my stash.

    Thanks again guys!!
    The paint I used is Automotive synthetic enamel, basically the same stuff Ford used to paint the real thing. 
    The foil is homemade.  I make it myself with household aluminum foil and gold leaf bond. I'm saving a lot of money, and having way better results. BMF was getting full of orange peel, and it was NOT on the car paint, it was the foil. Once I started to use my own foil again (that's how I started foiling back when the dinosaurs walked the Earth) the problem vanished.

    Thanks a lot guys. 
    If you want to see the making of, I have a series of YouTube videos on the build process. 
    Here is the first one:

    1956 Ford Fairlane Victoria.
    Hi Guys. 
    Finished my first car of 2016. It's a AMT 1956 Ford Fairlane Victoria. The kit fought me quite a bit, as the body was full of sink marks, being the most noticeable ones on the fins, near the taillights, and around the doors. Once that was fixed, it went together more or less without issue. My chrome parts were a bit to the yellow side, but since I just hate using paint to simulate bright metal, I just left them as they were. 
    The body was painted with automotive synthetic enamel to emulate Ford's Raven Black. 
    The foil is all home made with aluminum foil, and most of the detailing was done with Testors acrylics. 
    The kit has some deviations from 100% stock, but that is only noticed if you are really into Fords. Fixing those issues is not very hard, but to tell you guys the truth, I'm into building those things for fun, and if it starts to become a burden there is no fun anymore, so I built it box stock, without doing any correction or improvement, just painting the parts AMT provides and putting them together. yep, I'm lazy. 
    Anyways, here are some pictures of the mighty '56 Ford, and I hope you guys like it!!

  12. Lovefordgalaxie added a post in a topic '56 Ford Crown Victoria Skyliner   

    Yes, they were Plexiglas, and were treated with a tint that Ford said to block  and absurd amount of UV light, what didn't happen, and those cars were like a greenhouse under the sun. 
    By the way, this build is so awesome, that inspired me to build my old AMT '56 that was in the stash for years still sealed. Will post her soon, as I'm waiting for a little sun to take outside pictures. 
    Yeah, you are guilty, hope you think about what you have done

    Yep, this one looks great. Not to radical, and with tasty paint.
  14. Lovefordgalaxie added a post in a topic 1953 Ford F-100 Standard   

    The windshield rubber was done with ModelMaster flat black acrylic paint and a brush. 
    Thanks again guys!!

    I really don't know what to say. I guess Thank You is not quite enough, but then Thank You again!!
    I'm really curious to see your trucks. Even tough they are not all bone stock, still love to see a cool build of this kit.
    Thank you!! The wood on the bed is contact paper. I just cut it and glued it on the bed. 
    Muito obrigado!!
