1/8th Monogram Big T Coupe

Recommended Posts

Hi guys!  This is my T coupe I built a few years ago. It's not a modified Lindberg body. I had to use 2 T bucket bodies to make it long enough. The frame is an inch longer. The blower is from the old PE62 engine kit. The intake was scratch built. The turtle deck was shortened ,and made a little taller. The deck lid opens. The interior is with with gold inserts.Taillights are from the AMT 50 Ford.moon discs from the 32 Ford,and the fenders are from the Big Tub. Modified with a strip of half round to make them look like the ones on the AMT 1/25th version.The paint is Tamiya metallic gold w/clearcoat.  Hope you like it!

Nice job John. I thought it was the Tall T when I first saw it. Here is my WIP for the Lindy T, a chopped and channeled extended cab pickup.

Do you have a build thread for this car? It would be cool to see how it was done, for anyone who wants to build one of their own.

Thanks.

Sorry,I don't. I used the AMT bady  to get the general proportions. It was a lot of work.
