Unbelievable.

What do you use for the orange turn signals? I use Tamiya clear orange, but find it way too bright. Your's are just so much better looking.

For the record, turn signals here in the U. S. were clear until 1963. However , I'm told that Motor vehicle codes in California mandate that ALL , including ANTIQUE vehicles MUST HAVE AMBER SIGNALS if driven on ANY California highway. I guess that makes my 53 Ford truck illegal

The Galaxy looks like as if it were built back in 1961, well done I might add !!!!!!!!!

Over here you can use orange bulbs. And that's exactly the look I'm after. If you put an orange bulb into a clear turn signal lamp, it acquires an orange shimmer. I think Janne captured the look very nicely.

Beautiful build. That one brings back memories. My Grandmother had a blue '61 Galaxie 4-Door Sedan, which I plan to replicate in scale. It was also the first car I drove the night I got my driver's license.

put amber bulbs in your turn signals. That would be legal. I put those in my 54 Chevy when I lived there.

The amber bulb in clear turn signal can be replicated in scale by placing a dot of 'Amber Turn Signal' paint in the center where the bulb would be, then after the amber has cured, fill the lens bucket or bezel with canopy glue or similar white glue. Once it cures, you'll have a fair representation of the 3-dimensional turn signal with an amber bulb.
