AJ Foyt '65 Galaxie

28 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

This car started as the stock AMT '65 Galaxie kit. I trimmed the chrome trim off the body and smoothed it out. I had to modify the chassis to remove the molded in exhaust. I used plastic tubing for the exhaust. I modified the interior and scratched up the rollcage. I added seat belts and shoulder belts along with buckles and bolsters. I fabbed up a fuel cell for the trunk and made shocks from plastic tubing and rod. I removed the emblem from the grill and stripped the chrome, replacing it all with Alclad. The wheels and tires were made by me from resin. I fabbed up the hood and trunk pins. I wired the engine and used an air cleaner from the parts box. The decals are a combination of Penngwen decals and some of my own homemade decals.

Great looking model. I always like the ones that were easy to forget. AJ probably had quite a few forgotten ones.
