      We're still trying to solve a disk space problem. Unfortunately, it's being stubborn about getting rectified. There will be a long maintenance window this weekend, which I will announce here. Thank you all for being patient.

AMT 1960 Ford Starliner. ...last build for 2017

Recommended Posts

For some reason I've had this one on and off the bench for most of this year. ..no explanations as it's a really nice kit. Decided to button it up 2 weeks ago, foiled the body and mistakingly threw away the front bumper and mirrors in the trash !. Not my best modelling moment for sure lol.

Always wanted to do a full size early 60s Ford in black/red, came out really nice, spray can black on the body, cheap craft acrylics for the interior. Thanks to a couple of friends helping me out with parts I was able to finish it.

Great looking Ford. The black wall tires and base hub caps along with the black paint give it a sinister look, I like that.

Thanks David, the sinister look was what I was aiming for 😈

Super nice build. The only thing missing is detailing the front parking lights at the leading edge of the front fenders. Fortunately, an easy adjustment on a built kit.

Oh boy, that's a great looking Starliner. Black suits the car, and the red interior makes it a Red Widow (as the color combo is known here), what is extra sinister.

One of my favorites, and the widest passenger automobile built by Ford. They had to reduce the body for 1961. If you ever drive one you will understand. Some garage doors can become tight in a hurry. 

No!! I didn't scratch it, but it was close. And it was not my car, I had just rebuilt the Autolite 4100 four barrel, and eliminated a Pertronix kit, installing the stock points and condenser back... Imagine telling the owner I would have to call Obsolete or Dennis Carpenter for a replacement trim...

Thanks Mike,  I'll correct that

Well you know that I got my inspiration from a certain CCCP Digital Studio! 

Even in 1/25 this is a big car, it literally dwarfs most other models.

She's a beauty. How did you do the seat inserts?

Thankyou Lee, the inserts are painted freehand with a contrasting paint
