AMT 32 Ford Vicky A/G

Recommended Posts

Fun Build...lots of kit bashing with Slixx Decals.    1st time using a powdered candy concentrate, much cheaper than the liquid variety.   Pretty interesting product, mix the powder with lacquer thinner or reducer then use it to tint your clear.😎

I'm sure you've shared this elsewhere? That must be how that combo got into my brain...

How did you squeeze the exhaust between the frame rails?

I raised the engine using some spacers under motor mounts....looking forward to seeing how yours turns out.

Beautiful, and the finish is magnificent! Great sit--you've got it high but not TOO high, and with a very subtle rake instead of nosejacked. I like this a lot! B)

Thanks Gary....I was definitely inspired by some of the great Vicky Gassers of the 60's.  I.e... Teddy Bear and Teeter's red Vicky

Excellent build, love everything about it.  The overall end product is outstanding  When I got to the side view picture, I wondered what had happened to the paint on the "C" pillar, then I went down a couple more and realized it was a reflection of the overhead light - whew!
