One of mine to kick things off.

My one built Falcon. The Little Debbie Snack Cake sponsored stocker!

 I own a lot of the old annuals, but haven’t done anything with then just yet!

I do have Rancheros if allowed!

Built about 8 years ago. It's my first one in about 60 years. Had a 1:1 that I drove back in the 70s. Not quite this nice. ?

Here is my 1960 Falcon Ranchero. I built it factory stock, with a 6 cylinder engine.

It's painted with Scalefinishes, 1960 Ford Yosemite Yellow.

I have always been a Falcon fan and had a very 1/1 '65 V-8 4-speed for a few years of which I built a model of how it looked when I first got it using a Modelhaus resin body

This a a phantom Lotus-Falcon based on a Trumpeter kit

I also did a diecast conversion of a first generation Falcon a long the same theme using parts from a GT350

This diecast conversion just has GMP Mini-Lites wheels

Very nicely built model, Roger.

What paint did you use? I'd like to find that color for a future project.

I love Falcons,  having a '60 Ranchero,  '64 two door sedan, '65 and '66 Futura sedans, and a '62 Comet as daily drivers. I also have a '63.5 hardtop project on the far back burner.

Models...I have two early Rancheros, one is going to be like my 1:1, one is going to be a gasser, and one resin sedan delivery.  A trumpeter 64 Ranchero,  an old 62 two door sedan,  and a resin dirt track project...none of them are built.  Boy am I a slacker.

Thanx Roger! It's Model Masters Diamond Green. It's been discontinued for some time. You may be able still find a can of it.

1966 Falcon awaiting front and back chrome.  

It's not the one currently on eBay but ironically missing the same pieces and same damage to the B pillar.

This was built from a Franklin Mint model that had issues.
