Now,Don't hold your Breath-This'll never happen

Sunny Day:

      Entering my Favorite brick and Mortar H.S. After the usual greetings and high fives the owner says 'You have to look at the New model car I got this week from XYZ Models." "They're so many parts you're the first I'll let open one."

     Well, It's a model of a 72 Thunderbird. The box art is reminiscent of the sales brochures at the dealership. The instructions are, surprise! Not a multifolded sheet! It is a full color builders Manual with Color call outs from Ford! Weird.

      Well, the box mentions working doors, hood, trunk, steering and Suspension and Scale tinted windows. Oh, all the windows move too! Scary right?

    Opened the first bag. Can you believe this? Full inner support panels for all the moveable panels, In Scale thickness no less !! In full acurate detail too! Even to the plates on the fender wells for the suspension components. A whole little rolled up doublesided bag,Sealed between sections of all the scale nut and bolt heads you would see in the underhood area.

     Now the next bag. The rear suspension. the rear " Pumpkin" is seperate as is it's normally removeable cover. Both axle covers install to it. Then you install the axles( Delrin Moldings) and install the Brass leafe springs with all the nuts and bolts here too!

     Engine,Too many parts to discuss! Gotta mention though, those valve springs sure look like the real thing to me!  Anyway you get the gist of this dream sequence. Now for The End---- The whole kit is only $129.00! , That's cheaper than a Model Car Hiro or a D'agostini subscription model. 

   Of course it might take a couple of months to build. Hmmmmmm-----Metalbender

Why didn't you post photos, or identify this kit?  The 72 TBird is a pretty sweet design with that chopped top and all....some of us might want one.Smile
