62 T Bird Hardtop, Gluebomb No More

Recommended Posts

I forgot to take pictures of this one when I got it a week ago, but I can say this wasn't a real bad one. It was painted all gold. I always liked these in a rich maroon, so I painted it in Dupli-color Dark Toreador Red with matching interior. I applied 4 coats of Testors Wet Look Clear to the body and polished it out with The Treatment model wax. The windows were tinted with 3 light coats of Tamiya's Clear Blue. The tires are Firestone's 60's WW from AMT's parts pack. I always liked the look of the hardtops and these are a little rarer to find in model form.

Let me know what you think.

Thank, Al

I really like that one. I built a '63 years ago that looks similar. I drove a beige one in high school. Other than the atrocious gas mileage, it was not a bad car.

Cherry in color and quality! How was the fit of the new AMT tires on the old AMT wheels?

Thank you Chris. The tires fit like they came in the kit. I've used the AMT's RWL tires on Johan, Revell and MPC's with no problem.

Wow, Thank you everyone. I have a real soft spot for this color. Everytime I use it, I get the same high gloss finish.

Beautiful model and perfect colour choice. I prefer the older kits and promos to the newer AMT roadster kit.
