2 tone 57 Ford Custom

Recommended Posts

Engine wired and plumbed.  Refinished in BASF driftwood grey and Jonquill yellow lacquers, DuPont urethane clear coat.  Scratch built distributor, fuel filter assembly, starter solenoid, parking brake assembly.  Added valve stems and wheel weights to the tires.

This is the first time I ever used decals for the white walls.  I was impressed how well they turned out.

Good looking Ford. I normally don't have good luck with WW decals but your look great.

Super looking paint, and some really nice crisp looking detail work.

Very nicely done.  Great details, and I like the color combination.

Wow, beautiful job.  I hope you display it on a mirror base - that underside is just too nice to not be seen...

Very nicely done and strange two tone especially on a low based model..Very clean and like someone else said make sure you display at shows with a mirror base..Excellent work..

I like your 1957 Ford Fairlane build a lot, Andy...... the two-tone colour combination is very unusual, but pleasing to the eye and so '50's in character. The white wall decals have worked nicely for you, the engine detail is excellent and the underside of your model car has a nice realistic look too. This makes me want to build one of these Ford Fairlane's ! ..... which kit is this. Andy?

Since Revell launched their '57 Ford line of kits, there have been no shortage of them on this forum. Yours is one of the nicest builds I've seen. Great details without overdoing it. Very authentic looking. Great model.

Really well done.  Great paint, details and a super clean interior.  The colors work really well too.  Very, very nice stock build.

Outstanding looking model. The unusual colors work well together as does the interior. I like the mild ageing of the undercarriage. All of the trim is very cleanly done.

Very attractive model. I always liked Fords of this vintage in two-tone paint, and we rarely see them modeled. Very nice indeed.
