Ford Thunderbolt

Here is one I just finished up. This one was molded in that dark maroon styrene. What a pain. I paint with Testors Enamel and never prime so it took a lot of slow dry coats to cover that maroon. The other little problem was ocationally the glue would melt the paint and that maroon would show up again. This is bow stock except for the dog dishes. Those were some I resin cast from the '66 Ford Fairlane kit. I have another of these kits that I am gathering parts to build as a stock 289.

Hope you like this one.

Well, yes indeedy. I've been taking a real ribbin' over my stalled T-Bolt project...all my own (un)doing and fully deserved. I am looking forward to restarting the Wimbledon White car. I won't even consider starting the Vintage Burgundy car or transporter until I get past the first one. Similar to yours, it'll be an "as delivered" version. I have everything to get it done except the time, which I hate to use as an excuse.

You've done an outstanding job on this kit!! Take a bow!
