1964 Ford Falcon Sprint

Recommended Posts

After receiving such a warm welcome as I presented my first model in this thread I decided to present my second one.

The model kit is the Trumpeter Falcon Sprint of 1964:

The kit went together very well. Only the chrome of the bumpers had some flaws. So I decided to de-chrome them, gave them a shot with Testors enamel glossy black and applied Alclad Chrome.

I followed the first time the 'Donn Yost' method for airbrushing this model and I have to say that Donn made my day :D
It came out without any orange peel and there was absolutely no need for any clear coat. Only two or three dust particles had to be polished out. The color choice was Testor's bright yellow.

I replaced the kit's wheels with wheels from Scale Production and added some disc brakes. The front was lowered so that a horizontal stance could be achieved.

Excellent looking Falcon. It is on my list of models to build in 2013 to complete aTrumpter Falcon. Hope it turns out as well as yours.

Wow! What a great looking model. Very nicely done. Your foil work on those thin side spear trim borders is amazing! No doubt that is the best '64 Falcon model I have ever seen.

Beautiful build! Love the finish & the details. The wheels are cool, but would look cooler if you painted them the body color. Love this Falcon!
