1970 Ford Galaxie


Recommended Posts

While frustrated with some other builds, I changed gears and started work on the AMT '70 Galaxie police car. But I wanted to make it more like one we had back in the day. So, I found a green close to my memory of the Ford, made a vinyl top out of tape, and found some stock looking hubcaps from the parts box. BMF ended up a bit thick and too shiny, but you get the idea. I kept the interceptor engine, though, just for kicks.

Enjoy!

You need to use a sharp, new blade when you trim the foil. Looks like you're using a dull blade and tearing the foil. The weight of the knife alone (with maybe some very light pressure) should be enough to cut through the foil if the blade is sharp. If you're not getting clean, smooth cuts, that's a sure sign your blade isn't sharp enough.

Did you use the Ultra Bright or the regular chrome BMF? I tried the ultra and found it tears easily. I always use the regular chrome and polish it out. Otherwise a great looking build. :)
