More of my old-school builds: Back in 1985 or 86 I built these 2 versions of amt's trusty '57 Ford. The first  received a homemade continental kit made of plastic sheet and a 2-piece drag slick (I saw a similar one in a German modeling magazine back then) - the second should represent a four-door version: I glued the front doors shut , rescribed new doors and modified the c-pillars similar to a pic in the book "Monstrous American car spotters guide 1920-1980".

Spraypainted bodies and interiors, trim again brushed-on Humbrol copper and chrome silver, whitewalls are brushed with Humbrol matt white enamel (pictures from 2005):

Beautiful looking pair of '57 Fords. Great looking two tone colors and the trim looks perfect. I owned a '57 Convertible that was six years old when I bought it from the first owner and a few years later I bought a Mainline two door from the third owner.

Very nice models of under-appreciated cars, at least in my opinion.

Wow Helmut, what a beautiful pair of fords. You certainly took good care of them. They look pristine. Great job on this beautiful pair. Glad you shared with us.

Glad you like them, Mario - I have sold a lot of my models (aroungd 70 +), but these I will keep as well as about 30 others.

Thank you, David - must have been a real treat cruising along in a `57 Convertible in 1963 or 64 with The Beach Boys on the radio.

Great job on a tricky ‘60’s AMT. Getting the gaps around the doors even and flush with the body sides requires a lot of patience and skill. Very nice !
