A realy nic e work on this '56 Montclair ... and I know how hard it is to do the windows on this Revell/AMT series ... some years ago, I did it on the Lincoln of this series ... but not so nice as your model ...

Thanks, Frederic!  Lovely job on the Continental MkII!  Cool photo as well!

Great work on that oldie, especially the chrome!  Now imagine you're at a yard sale or thrift store and come across one of these for a dollar or two...

Thanks, Michael!  Yeah, those gift sets are big bucks! In '56 there was another one that had 5 cars, substituting the Caddy Eldo and Merc for the Continental. In '55 there was one with the Caddy, Ford, Chrysler, and Buick. Ultra-rarities!

Building the Continental I found cutting the dash where it meets the screen, then allowing the clear to slide between the dash and body helped the 'glass keep its shape.

The acetate reminds me of the book reports we used to have to do back in the 70’s. I actually made a canopy for a Me-109 Messerschmidt out of a book report cover because the canopy wasn’t in the kit.
