Revell ‘57 Ford Ranchero mild custom


Recommended Posts

Finally finished this one up, it’s the lower body from the sedan with the upper section from the wagon which was then chopped into a Ranchero. Some minor trim shaving and tunnelling the headlights sorted the exterior, while the entire inner body was recessed up into the outer. The suspension is at stock height on the frame and the rolling stock are from Pegasus.

Great looking color and I like the mild custom look. What did you use for your bed cover ?

Thanks, the bed cover is from the ‘59 El Camino with just a couple of small notches to the front corners. No sense in making work for myself. Lol.

My first car was a 57 Ford 2 door. I bought all the models of cars in my life that I liked and this makes me want to work on the 57 next. Revell 57 Ford Custom. Looks like a nice kit. I hope I can make it as good as yours. Very clean.
