AMT 62 Galaxie restoration

pack rat

Recommended Posts

I finally finished another one of my own projects.  

I picked this junk-box refugee up real cheap a few years ago.  The thick flat black/red/green color scheme combined with all of the junk glued onto the interior bucket didn't look too appealing, but I thought it had possibilities.  Finding most of the missing stock pieces in the same junk pile sealed the deal.   Unfortunately I had to re-use the messed-up fender ornaments that were installed upside-down by the original builder....I might fabricate better ones if I can't find replacements.

This one didn't go as smoothly as I expected; especially when it came time to apply the BMF...sometimes the planets just have to be in perfect alignment when you attempt that chore.

I'm amazed you did as well!  I've seen those boxes of orphaned models at shows.  This is just like the real world, someone finds a junk heap, and restores it.

Did your sheet of BMF have expired adhesive?  That seems to be a problem.  Also, are you going to vacuum-form a rear window?
