"The Stig Collection" -Tina's 56 Ford

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!, My wife, Tina built this Revell 56 Ford Pickup. It was her second model ever, and its totally detailed. This ISNT the Foose version, but the rather HORRIBLE original version. Nothing fit good, but she stuck to it, and did I great job!!!......Stig thinks so too!!!

Wow, I'm impressed! I have quite a few of those kits and NONE of them are finished.

Tell her great job - keep it up.

Very beautiful build.  Really like the color combination and the overall cleanness of the build.  Those are some "loud" looking exhaust pipes.

What an exceptional build and attention to detail. Great color combo for a fantastic paint job.

I had a Hotwheels that looked just like this, with two yellow dirt bikes in the back......same kolors and all!!

She did a seriously good job on this kit. The detailing is well done, the door shut lines are as good as anyone could expect from this kit, the build is clinically clean, and the paint is absolutely superb (gee Dan, maybe you should have her take a look at the finish on that black Pantera ;))

It certainly is a struggle to get this old kit together, though it is one of my favourite ever. Kudos to you, Tina. Exceptional work.

Thanks a lot, Trevor!, I will let her know what you said, she will appreciate it!!…...about that HORRIBLY out-of-scale gloss, I kept having to polish junk out of it, and re-spraying clear, and before I new it, it looked like that!!…...normally it would go straight in the bin, but for some reason I still kept it.

Cheers Dan. The Pantera is very cool, BTW, and they all don't have to be showroom smooth, just poking a bit of fun.
