Ford Falcon Sedan Delivey Update 10/02

Recommended Posts

 This is my very first attempt to actually work with a resin body,I found this at a local car swap meet with donor kit for $24 so I figured I would give it a try....and also my first try with Fotki being with all the issues I have had with photobucket......so I hope I have done this right.

 Basically it's just going to be a curb side build and still deciding on what type of company/use it will carry when done......if I get this done.....any comment or suggestions please by all means do so being like I said this is my first resin.

 Hope to get some body color on this thing this week end if all goes right....

Wow! That is a cool body. That brings back some fond memories. I had 63' ford Falcon wagon with the Woodgrain on the sides.

I will be following this build for sure !

I used to live in San Bernardino California in  the '60's, there was a business called San Bernardino Racing Equipment. All of his personal vehicles where black and always car show ready. He had a shop truck, a Falcon panel, that was black with gold leaf lettering on the side panels with a nice set of mags and had a 289 4speed. Just a thought, but I think a speed shop would be a good commercial type build.

Looking forward to this build,  I have the same resin body and will be using the Ranchero kit with a small block FORD or maybe a resin FORD 6-cylinder to replace that god-awful BBC.  Of course mine is a ways down on the list.   Will watch your build with interest.

 Great start to a neat build, makes me want to build one also.

if you do go small block Ford, the 302 in the Revell 32 kit fits very well uder the Falcon hood.

Wow....That is a great color for this one.....Very nice clean up, too....

             X's 2 Glad to see you got the paint problems sorted out. With that color you have lots of options for a two tone paint job.

   Mike,

    I know how hard you have worked to get this one done. It is looking really good. 

Who made that body ? I am thinking I would like to get one. Make a  Surf shop truck out of it .
