AMT Craftsman Series 1959 Lincoln


Recommended Posts

I have three AMT 59 Lincoln 3 in 1 kits built up. I had a bunch of the Craftsman Series  issues so decided to build one of them. You might guess I like 59 Lincolns (and 60 too).

This is built right out of the box except that I used Modelhaus AMT 59 style tires as the ones in this kit were the 61 style tire and didn't have wide whitewalls. I did not paint the body, I just polished the plastic. I am happy the way it came out.

I hope you like this one. I didn't take interior photos before assembling it. I welcome comments, good and bad.   -Rich

Deep rich looking black paint and clean trim details. The copper one looks much the same, both great looking builds. 

Thanks very much, I appreciate all the comments  -Rich

Beautiful.  When you say polished the body.  Did you just use a polishing or rubbing compound?  Looks fabulous

Hi David, I use Meguiars Plastx to polish plastic.  Sometimes I wax the model after but don't think I did on this one.

Thanks for your comment.  -Rich

"I did not paint the body " man that buffed out marvelous. I love the baroque styling of these late 50's Lincoln's, although 59 and 60 look similar the dash in the 60 is a knockout especially with that big steering wheel. Excellent build, thanks for posting.

Absolutely gorgeous! I hope that, much like the '59 Imperial, one day they find the molds for this (more likely the '60 version though) laying around and reissue it. A boy can dream.
