Started in September 10, 2015. Completed April 2, 2016. Painted Tamiya Light gun metal. Intake system from Revell 57 Ford Tudor, wheels from AMT 36 Ford, tires are from an AMT parts pack tire package. Interior is Tamiya German gray, Medium gray, and sky gray. Steering wheel is from AMT 57 Ford Fairlane 500 kit. License plate decals are from Revell 57 Ford Tudor kit. This color is suppose to replicate the special paint that was available from Ford in mid 57 on the Thunderbirds. Thanks for looking.
With the vast majority of these kits being done in green or blue, I wanted a different color for mine. So I picked Tamiya Gunmetal. From what I understand it was a factory summer color for Ford back in 1957 so that worked out well since I was debating on whether to build it stock or not. The final build will be something like a "day one" or "week one" car. Chrome reverse wheels are from the AMT 36 Ford kit while the tires are from the AMT parts pack, L60s on the rear while the F60s are on the front. Intake is from the Revell 57 Tudor kit. Interior is a mix of Tamiya greys, German grey on
