Posted · Report post

Hi everyone, this is my first serious attempt at modifying a diecast model. This is the Road Legends 1/18 Ford Falcon 1963 ½ that when I bought it was all red in color. My changes/mods were;

  • Lowered suspension
  • Custom wheel/tires sourced from three other kits and then the thin white wall was added to the tyres
  • Convert to a V8 engine
  • Twin exhaust system with Bellflower pipes
  • Complete re-color of the interior
  • White shag carpet
  • Custom gear shift and turn signal arm
  • Pearled steering wheel
  • De-chromed body
  • Lace panelling on body and roof
  • Custom paint (Dusky Rose on the body and white/silver flake on the roof)
  • Custom headlights
  • Floating bar grille
  • Custom tail lights
