1990 Thunderbird SC

Recommended Posts

While doing the 66 Bird I decided to make a pair of TBird, It was fun to compare the differences between the two.

This one is a 1990 TBirs SC, with the compressed V6 engine. It was a fun built but the front and rear pan have almost no location tab so I installed some little styrene pieces to provide a good gluing part for it. I made me make a mess on the left front fender."Well what the heck this is not a contest built

Great to see one of these again. Very well done, good colors and that seat belt is a nice touch.

I have found how much clearcoat can help out in an instance where I've made a flub... I use 3M Trizact 3000 to gently persuade the bad spot, and then bring the shine back with Tamiya Fine Compound.

I like it. Nice color choice

Did you have any problem lining up the inter cooler with the upper it duct and the rear duct. I build this motor for a 32 Deuce project and had a hard time getting them aligned out of the engine bay. Ended up to wide for the 32 so I saved it for another future build and went with a different intake setup.

This one looks beautiful. I like it because it's (in my point of view) rare on the internet. Thank you for sharing!

No the fit was OK Except for positionig the rear of this part to the aluminium inlet...

Nice, and the addition of the motorized shoulder-belt in the "park" position is a nice added detail.

Got one started to put the engine out of the Mustang Super Stallion in, and set it aside for another project, this makes me want to drag it back out again. The reason I decided to put the Stallion engine in was because I robbed the blown 3.8 for a Ranger pickup kit, now I'll have two vehicles Ford should have built.

What a rare sight! Well done!

For me one of the nicest american cars of the beginning 90ies! We don´t have much of them here in Germany but I´m always happy to see one. 

Here´s one shot at a carshow in september:
