Box Stock 1957 Thunderbird

6 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

These are pictures of a recently completed 1957 Thunderbird that I built for my daughter Stephanie. Because of her MS, she'll never walk again, much less drive, but she told me she always wanted a car just like this. I started with the AMT/Ertl kit and built it box stock without a lot of detail. The paint is Krylon X-Metals Red with Kilz Casual Colors clear coat. I polished the paint with LMG polishing pads and finished up with Meguires Scratch-X polish. I applied Bare Metal Foil to the trim and paint-detailed the interior. If this project brings a little joy into her life, I will consider it a success.

Enjoy!
