Monogram 57 Ford Del Rio - My Take


Recommended Posts

With the vast majority of these kits being done in green or blue, I wanted a different color for mine. So I picked Tamiya Gunmetal. From what I understand it was a factory summer color for Ford back in 1957 so that worked out well since I was debating on whether to build it stock or not.

The final build will be something like a "day one" or "week one" car.



Chrome reverse wheels are from the AMT 36 Ford kit while the tires are from the AMT parts pack, L60s on the rear while the F60s are on the front.




Intake is from the Revell 57 Tudor kit.


Interior is a mix of Tamiya greys, German grey on the door and seat panels, medium sea grey carpet, and light aircraft grey inserts on the door panels. The top of the door panels, rear floor, and wheel wells are painted body color, along with the dash.


I still need to paint the white part of the seats the light aircraft grey.

I might put some blue dots and some pin stripping on the tail gate, not sure yet.

Thanks for looking :-)
