55T Bird done!

Recommended Posts

this is the T-Bird I started about a month ago. I tried to make it solid red...didn't like that, tried solid White, once again stripped it all off, then I saw a '56 Bird on a web page that was beautiful Black and so went with that. This was NOT one of my fav builds. Too many parts needed to be "fixed" because allot of them just would not fit. The flash on the parts was excessive, but probably for it's day maybe not.
Hope you all like it.

You did a nice job. What kit did you start with? Both Revell and AMT have a 56 Thunderbird. No one has made a 55 Thunderbird in 1/25 or 1/24 scale. Just the big AMT 1/16 kit.

From the appearance of the windshield and hardtop shape, it's the 1/24 Revellogram kit. I did convert one of these into a '55 years ago, but other than the conversion, I had no trouble with parts fitting. I guess the tooling is wearing out as this kit dates back to 1982 IIRC.
