My first completed car in 2019. 

AMT 1956 Ford Fairlane Victoria. 

Built box stock. All detail is paint, foil and decals. 

The only parts that didn't come in the box, are the tires, that are also AMT, but from the parts pack. I painted wide whitewalls on the side of the tires where the Firestone name is, and mounted them with the tampo printed whitewalls facing inside. Was going to remove the printed whitewalls, but they look kinda cool there. 

The colors, are Fiesta Red, and Raven Black, mixed in automotive synthetic enamel. 

Here are a few pictures, hope you guys like her:

Excellent build of one of the more beautiful Tri-5's.  Really like the color combination and your attention to cleanliness in building is over the top.

Another one of your outstanding Ford builds. These were popular color combinations at that time. This makes one wonder how buyers today would react to such colors on todays automobiles ?

Hummm. I don't think even nice colors can save modern cars. All butt ugly.
