I second the model of a 73-78 Mercury. I owned a 73 Mercury Marquis triple brown with a 460 cu in. It was a very good car whisper quiet and a very smooth running car.

Hi, Unfortunately I've had a few medical setbacks( 2 heart attacks and surgery) that has kept me from finishing the LTD, but It will still be available in the near future on ebay at first then on the website so stay tuned for the latest updates.

It was noted elsewhere that the owner had medical issues and it is possible that Blue Oval Resin Works was shut down.  There has been no reports of that web site starting up again.

To be fair, it'd probably just a costs effective to buy the 78 LTD from missinglink resin, a bit of strip and sheet plastic and make your own.

You are 100% correct arcturus. I bought the kit and am awaiting the strips etc, and the only thing really needed is sheet styrene for the headlight doors. Not difficult

..don't forget the fender skirts !! Actually, I've seen the one from Blue oval resin built up, and I must say, the body looks inaccurate. The Missing link one would be a far more accurate version anyway.

I won't be doing them. In 1978 the fender skirts on the Landau became optional, and there were a lot of them produced without, and because of simplicity that is the route I will be going as well. The pictures of this model that are posted do make me agree with you that the body is inaccurate. The nose looks more like that of a Town Car than of the LTD Landau.

Unfortunately, Blue Oval Resinworks is long gone but not forgotten and either is this 78 LTD Landau. It WILL be produced eventually. Yes, I had major medical problems that left me severely physically disabled and on tons of medications. I am unable to ever run a full-time resin business ever again but I'm NOT DEAD YET and I still dable with it , still have all my original Blue Oval masters and still build models when I can.  It's been years but I am currently working on striking up a deal with a resin caster to help me out with him doing some of my older castings. I  mastered a 70-71 Ranchero that he casted for me with excellent results and this 78 LTD Landau shouldn't be too far behind so don't give up on it yet and it IS fairly accurate. I used the original AAM 78 LTD grille, front bumper, parking lights and tail lights when I mastered it, plus  original 78 Ford LTD Landau sales brochures for photo references. It's not 100% accurate no, but I would put it at atleast 95% accuracy. Even AMT and Revell models aren't always 100% accurate so why should hand casted resin be any different. So maybe you'll end up seeing this yet real soon.  Kenny.

Kenny ;

   The main thing is , You're still with us ! Now you just sit back and take your time .You'll still wow them . O.C.G.   P.S. I'd much rather see you do a 1977,78 Grand Marquis brougham S.E. That's my favorite one from this era !

I am looking to start a new bussines in the cotage industry (I work as a professor at University of Mexico). or I can put you in touch with a reliable source for finishing the project and start production in Mexico with all the guarantees you need.

Besides, the model was very popular in Latinoamerica and can be a great starting project.

 

Best regards

Saul
