AMT 1/32 1960 Ford Thunderbird

Recommended Posts

This is a pretty cool, pretty simple kit, pretty fun kit. AMT’s recent release 1960 Thunderbird. Paint is Duplicolor Chili Pepper Red Pearl. Interior of Tamiya white primer with custom upholstery decals and semi-glossed with Testors semi-gloss. I added a different steering wheel and column shifter, but a 1/32 interior is pretty small. Wheels and tires are from Hasegawa Subaru 360 kit. Whitewalls are custom cut vinyl. Model was lowered - the simple chassis makes that easy, just drill some new holes.

Great paint work and very cleanly detailed trim. I'm impressed by the body proportions in such a small scale kit. Glade you mentioned the scale, I never would have guessed it was 1/32nd.

Looks great - especially like the pattern on the seats. I recently completed one of these kits - built pretty much as stock. It is a nicely detailed kit for its small size.
