Built this AMT 1/16 scale 1957 Thunderbird last century, as a commission build for a member of the Prescott Antique Auto Club. They discovered that it was built on the day they got married, so it was very special to them. Back when I produced videos for the local cable access channel, we did a Christmas show, with my wife and friend riding in back sitting on the body, to drive through The Valley Of The Lights in Prescott Valley. He died a few years ago, widow gave me the model, but I didn't want to keep it, so donated to the PAAC to display in the clubhouse. It was a challenge to make right, the headlights and taillights needed to be shaped into the fender, removed the huge mold lines on the bumpers and got re-chromed. Added the retractible radio antenna, pins for the top to stay in place, license plate is a photograph - calculated the distance with lens and print size (otherwise wild educated guess). Otherwise it's Box Stock, painted with Testors gloss white, not polished or cleared. Had to make mounts so the chassis could be glued to the body, the worst kit engineering I had seen. Attached to the display box so it could be hung on the wall.
