1971 Thunderbird - AMT

Recommended Posts

The AMT 71 Thunderbird is a very simplistic kit but it makes a great curbside. So that's how I built it. Nothing too fancy. Duplicolor Gray Metallic. Duplicolor primer interior. Shave the side marker and Thunderbird emblems. Cleared with Duplicolor Clear and buffed out. Pegasus wheels and lowered slightly. Used customer headlight covers from the kit. Pretty happy with the results. Since being photographed I added drivers side mirror and license plate.

Looks real nice. I too built this kit as a simple curbside, just not that nice of a kit to spend a lot of effort doing a detail build.

That turned out really well, was this the recent kit with the crazy decals?

Looks great, but personally I prefer an older style wheels.
