      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

AMT '65 Galaxie

1 post in this topic

Posted

Hi folks, this Galaxie has been on the bench for about 3 years now. I keep running into problems and losing interest, then eventually I fall back in love with its sharp lines and 60s look and out it comes again!

The kit came from Ebay, and when it arrived I could see that the parts were mostly removed from the frame, making it hard to stock-take the parts. It is almost all there, though the metal axles have had to be replaced.

I have somehow managed to assemble the car to ride really low on its wheels, which looks cool but was unintentional. It also makes it very hard to close the hood with the firewall in place, so some surgery may be required. Also I need to add thin whitewalls: I was thinking of using a white gel pen, anybody got any better ideas?

Paint is some kind of Peugeot metallic bronze, the vinyl roof is Plasti-Kote satin aerosol paint.
