Another 1982 Bill Eliott Thunderbird

Recommended Posts

To continue my collection of "Squarebird" 1980-82 Thunderbird body used by Bill Elliott in the early eighties. Bill was recognized as an up and comer in the 1982 season. He earned his second pole start and had eight top five finishes. Twice he finished second and he led over 150 laps that season. This is another of the group of three kits I purchased in a Legends kit which had Neil Bonnet and Benny Parsons on the box. The extra kit had everything but the glass. I think I used clear acetate as a substitute on one of them. I'll know once it's posted. Now that I've looked closer at the pictures, I can see it;s the one I posted yesterday. This one also has aftermarket decals from Slixx. The numbers on the sides are too large, I found out after I finished it you could get a group of numbers from Slixx that had the correct sized numbers for the sides. Painted with standard Testors red and white paints and detail painted. Tomorrow I'll post the 1981 version.
