  1. 1958 Edsel Pacer

    Finished this one today. Really nice, detailed kit, one of the newer AMT tools. I did a Google image search and found one with this unusual color scheme, so 1950's. Comments welcome as always, thanks for looking!
  2. 60 Edsel Ranger convertible

    Here is another one of my restorations. Last year I did a 59 Edsel restoration I was itching to get this 60 Edsel Ranger convertible done also. I really like the looks of these cars and was eager to get started. I actually started with one built up and acquired another one hoping to have a better body. Once I stripped the body of the second one it was almost perfect and I built that one instead. So the only parts from the first model are the rechromed parts. Modelhaus supplied the missing convertible boot, taillight bezels, outside mirrors, whide white wall tires, and fender ornaments. Just a note that the taillight bezels on the finished model are rechromed originals from the first kit. I still have one more buildable kit that is missing the rear Edsel emblem and some crazing in the back. I plan to build it as a mild custom! First a few pics of before. This is the kit I actually restored, It's body, interior and chassis were much cleaner.
  3. 1958 Edsel Pacer

    Hello everyone. Here is a 1958 Edsel Pacer. This is a box stock build like most of my models. It is painted Testors French Blue and Gloss White. Matching Interior with some bare metal foiling on the door panels. The engine is factory correct Goldenrod yellow 361cu v8. This being an AMT kit it went together rather nicely. Not very many fitment issues. All comments welcome. Enjoy!!
  4. Starting a new build for a friend of mine. A few years back he asked me if I would build him a model, and he asked about an Edsel Ford Model 40 Speedster. I had no idea what this even was, so I did a little internet research on the car, then went looking for a model of it. It turns out that this was a one-off car Edsel Ford had built in the early thirties. Long story short, it resurfaced a few years ago and was recently restored. Here are some pics of the car: You can read about the history of it here: http://www.fordhouse.org/experience/edsel-fords-1934-special-speedster/the-story Once I know what I was looking for, I set about seeing if one was produced in scale. I immediately found that there were die casts out there, but he was more interested in having a model built by me. However, all the searching I was doing came up with nothing for a while. Then somehow, I found out that one was produced in resin in 1/25th scale by R&D Unique several years ago. The release of this kit actually predated the restoration, so it was based on the unrestored version, which was painted red when it was located. So now I knew it existed, but R&D Unique has been out of business for a few years now, so finding one was going to be a challenge. In fact, I searched for a year and came up empty. Then at one of the local shows here in So Cal, I was vending next to a guy that had several unique resin kits that I was particularly noticing. As we were chatting about different kits, he pulled a bin out from under the table and said, “I bet you haven’t seen one of these before!.” I just about freaked out and told him I had been looking for one for over a year. So I asked him “How much?”, and he replied, “Oh, this one wasn’t for sale.” At the end of the day, though, he gave me his number and told me to give him a call. So I did and he was willing to let it go after all. As mentioned, it’s a resin kit, and also requires a donor kit. Here's the R&D kit: Here’s the ’37 Ford Pickup donor kit: And the pieces used from the kit: I started some work on the body and the front end fell off! It loks like it was poured just a little, then the rest filled up. I decided to replace the molded in bezels with the kit pieces. I’m also going to replace the louvres and grills.
  5. 1958 Edsel Pacer

    This 1958 Edsel is in the shop being prepared for the weekend's show. We have a couple of kids that come in after school for a couple hours each day, and we'll put them to work on the final polishing and touch ups. This one was built straight from the box. The colors are Testor's rattle can copper & brown with an overcoat of gloss pearl.

  7. Ford Edsel - 1958

    Hi everybody, today a old build, didn't know, in wich year i made it. Long time ago. The only things i know are, that i used no internet for research details, BareMetalFoil was foreign word, also wiring the engine...but i remember, that the amt-kit was very easy to buid. All fixed well together and is detailed well. Some Pics: Perhaps, when i get this kit again, i would build it again with my knowledge from today... Comments are always welcome
