Revell 57 Ford


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have to admit that this particular year isn't one of my favourites (would've much prefered a 55 Mercury Montclair) but as it's a kit that I've not built before I though I'd give it a go. It's just going to be a mild custom with lowered suspension & whitewalls.The first thing that I realised was that the front inner fenders were stopping the wheel sitting higher in the wheelwell so I've reworked them with plastic card.


I haven't done much to the body except remove the hood ornament,trunk enmblem and door handles.

A couple of pics of the body before polishing - the color is Ford Phoenix/Vista orange from Zero paints plus their 1k clear.



Thanks for looking - sorry for poor indoor pics

Hi all,

Thanks for the comments, after 4 weeks lost to the World Cup (and the less said about England's performance the better) I've made some progress on this one, engine & interior are done, paints been polished out, trim Bare Metal Foiled & glass added. All I need to do now if figure out how to lower the suspension !.

Thanks for looking - sorry for the poor quality pics.
