Here's my latest build, I finished it up about a month ago. I enjoy restoring these built vintage models.

I started out with this 1958 AMT Edsel

After quite a bit of work and a few parts from the current hard top kit I ended up with the old glue bomb looking like this. B)

That is one very beautiful Edsel! I like that mild custom look and body color combinations. Nice Job!

Great job. I have recently acquired some glue bombs from the early days and will be restoring them. I hope my efforts look half as good as yours. Those kids back in the 60s liked a couple things: lots of glue and randomly applied custom parts. And lots of glue.

Such a nicely-done very mild custom....de-trim and a really cool grille.

Great job, Bob.

I sorta "lost it" when it was posted at another place, but it deserves more "props" because it is such a fantastic transformation! Everything is so right, the craftsmanship is outstanding, and that grille just makes it!

I didn'treadthefirst post fully and saw the model and wondered, how are we going to break this to him, but then I was simply go smacked by the transformation. You should be very proud.
