Snake, I love how sensitively you restored your time capsule. I have one more Vicky body left in my stash and I intend to build one like this but there are other more pressing projects in the queue.

Thanks! It almost broke my heart to scrape those cool old-school flame decals off, but they were in such bad shape that they had to go, as they no longer fit in with the look of the rest of it. If I ever run across another set of them, I'd give serious thought to putting them back on, as they do offer a little color to the thing. B)

The first one AMT Deuce I ever built was this five window.  Mostly stock but uses the rear axle from an Ala Kart and the wheels and tyres from a Monogram Edmunds Supermod. It also runs a Son of Ford headlight bar with Dietz headlights

That's a lot of '32's and all of them very well done! Where did you find the girl with the dog in this one? My wife and I had a dog that looked just like it.

Alan...Great topic, thanks for starting it and very nice collection ofAMT 32s.   I really like the phaeton, Vicky, and roadster pickup.  Here’s what I’ve built and have in work...

Great topic and some nice models to show! My collection of Deuces is AMT-free, I'm sorry to say, I have 2 models, however, that almost qualify, First, and more closely in the spirit of this thread, here's my "fake" AMT box-art build,based on the street rod version of "The Deuce" on the original issue box art. It's constructed with virtually no AMT parts (except for the valve covers, Moon discs and fenders) from the Revell 1/25th scale '32 Fords:

The other is a tribute build I did in honor of the fine folks at ThePartsBox.com in Australia. It's based on their AMT-based chopped 5-window coupe resn body and it's right-hand-drive, naturally. Almost everything on it is either from their extensive catalogue or scratchbuilt except for the wheels, grill shell and rear axle:

Craig, without having the packaging handy to check, I'm pretty sure she came from a range called Motorheads.  This one was from a set of five girls in a variety of poses.  They are pre-painted resin and easily the best off-the-shelf 1/25th scale figures I've ever come across.

And Pete, that blue Vicky is - I don't know, words fail me , I'm going to just say I think that is the best build of an AMT Vicky I have ever seen.  Gorgeous!  The coupes are pretty cool too but the Vicky - ahhhhhhh!

Bernard, don't you love thepartsbox.com resin?  I know Jason and Michelle very well and the products they produce are just fantastic. That coupe has a killer stance, gotta love it!

Cheers

Alan

Ok here goes with some early photos.  An early 1960's built AMT roadster with channeled body and chopped radiator.

Here is another survivor from the early '60s.  A highboy this time with a Lincoln engine and rumble seat.

Some nice builds there

Below is a couple of mine

The coupe was a challenge with a fellow club member as to who could build the lowest 32 Coupe - yup I won

The other is a build from the early 80's - 427 from the kit with a C6 instead of the flatty gearbox, 4 barrel, rocker covers and air cleaner from a 69 Cobra, scratch-built headers, Jag XKE front and rear, top chop, blue window tint in a nod to Uncle Tim, paint is Humbrol red mixed with silver Humbrol plus clear, wires from XKE widened in the back. A typical resto rod from the day

Wow, I had no idea this thread would attract so many high quality and interesting builds.  I've still got a few left in my stash, might have to get onto them also.

 

Bill, love your Kiwi Kars!  I have been psyching myself up to do a grey paint job for a while - your coupe might just put me over the edge!

Cheers

Alan
