1958 Edsel Pacer

Recommended Posts

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!!IMG_3816_zpsk5e4dwcd.jpg1467340608861_5509327433_6cfa3790_v1_zpsIMG_3818_zps3tr3ckz7.jpg1467340396584_4454022228_6cfa3790_v1_zps

Are the backup lights missing?

All I see is the holes where they're supposed to go.

They are there Harry. Both are transparent parts. A little foil on the trim, and some paint for the lenses will fix that.

Tulio, the lights on your model look great. I think Tim needs to do what you did.

Very nicely done.  A little black wash on the grill would really set it off.

Thanks Harry. Foiling those tiny lights was a real pain. Almost impossible to do without gluing them in place and then foiling. That's what I ended doing, so the fix will be a relative easy one. The rear bumper will have to get out tough, and be reinstalled latter.

Thanks Harry. Foiling those tiny lights was a real pain.

But well worth the effort. Leaving them as plain transparent pieces just doesn't work.

Nice looking Edsel Tim...... but I'd fix those backup lights as stated above.
