Scale I Build

  1. I picked up one of these Jimmy Flintstone resin bodies. They recommend the AMT 57 Ford or the Revell Ranchero kit. Any experience plus or minus?
  2. Many folks know that I collect old survivors, especially interesting customs, that people built back in the heyday of modeling. I find that these are historical time capsules of where the hobby was at the time, both in imagination and in level of skill put into these works. I cringe when I see people take one of these neat old models that has somehow survived intact 50-60 years and strip them down for a new build. Here's some work I've done recently... Once upon a time I found this beat to death 1957 Ford custom in a dealers junk box at the MidAtlantic NNL in Maryland. It had the

I am considering using the chassis from an AMT kit under the Revell body to give the sedan pose-
  5. The 1957 Ford came in four main types, Custom, Custom 300, Fairlane and Fairlane 500, with numerous derivatives thereoff. Besides a longer wheelbase, the Fairlane and Fairlane 500 series were distinguished by the hardtop body style in two and four door designated repsectively Club and Town Victoria. In addition, there were the Sedan type in two and four doors similar to the Custom and Custom 300. Now my question: Did the Customs share the same roof with the Fairlane (B-Pillar) sedans?
