  • File: 1937 Ford pickup

    I built this from Monogram's 1937 Ford truck kit. It has a wired-and-plumbed engine and scratchbuilt compressor. The finish is Tamiya Racing Green and Krylon Gloss Black, with Testor's clear lacquer. The decals are from Revell's 1950 Chevy truck kit.
  • File: 1940 Ford Coupe

    A quick weekend build just for fun. Wheels from the parts box and used an aftermarket magneto. Testor's lacquer finish.
  • File: 1941 Ford Woody

    This was a great kit; the equivalent of a new tooling in my estimation. The side window templates had to be cut out of a small sheet of clear material. I don't know if they shrunk over time, but the resulting windows weren't even close to the openings. I decided to cut a sheet of clear plastic...
  • File: 1948 Ford Woody with Kurtis Midget Racer on Trailer

    This is a model of a 1948 Ford Woody with a Kurtis Midget Racer on a trailer. Both were built out of the box. The photo was taken on a foam board base, with model railroad trees and stone wall. The backdrop is a poster.

  • File: 1953 Ford F-100

    This pickup was built completely stock a few decades ago, with black tires, orange steelies, and hub caps. It recently was transformed into a bit of a street rod with wide whites and chrome-reversed wheels retaining the hub caps. The grille was painted body color, along with a few other details to enhance...
  • File: 1956 Ford Thunderbird

    I built this Thunderbird from an AMT American Graffiti kit I bought several years ago. It was fun to build, with a nicely detailed interior.

    This Ford was built completely stock several decades ago.
  • File: 1957 T-Bird

    This is an older build with an updated paint job. It's molded in red with only one coat of paint. Testor's Flaming Orange gives it the color I was after.
  • File: 1961 Ford Galaxie Starliner

    This was built in the late 1960s to replicate an employee's car at my uncle's Ford dealership. This model (like his car) wore white walls and 1964 Galaxie 500 XL wheel covers for decades until they were replaced with open wheels and hubcaps. Like his, fender ornaments were removed along with...
  • File: 1962 Galaxie

    This is an original issue from 1962. It was a Galaxie 500 hardtop with all the wide side moldings and rocker panel moldings. I converted it into a plain Galaxie and made it a pillared sedan. A tachometer on the dash, track bars, hood scoop, and fender badges make this a tough-looking competitor. (The...
  • File: 1966 Ford Falcon Coupe Mod

    Here is the 1966 Ford Falcon coupe mod I recently completed. The body is an Aussie-made resin body; the chassis is from a Dodge Coronet; and the engine was a Hemi unit from the Coronet. The interior is mostly scratchbuilt.
  • File: 1966 Mustang Custom

    This Mustang was customized in the 1960s. The front and rear sections were from another kit. Longtime modelers will note the thin white band around the tires. Back then, kits offered white outer tire covers to be glued to the tire. After painting them flat black, you scraped the paint from the thin deeper...
  • File: 1966 Mustang GT

    This Mustang was completely redone this past winter. Originally bought in 1966, it was left white with complimentary red/white interior and red stripes above the rock panels. I redid the wheels so they have the correct larger trim rings. This moves the wheels inboard as they should be. Several other...
  • File: 1967 Shelby GT350

    The finish is Plasti-kote Gloss Black. The red interior really pops! I love the way it turned out!
  • File: 1968 Cobra Jet Mustang

    A Revell 19'68 Mustang GT kit. Decals from LUCAS. I have built six of these for my collection.
  • File: 1968 Shelby GT500

    This Mustang was built several decades ago. Not stock to the kit are the fake 'mag' wheel covers from another kit.

    This kit was built from the box except for the body-colored open wheels with scratchbuilt poverty caps, correct racing mirrors, cables for the hood pins, and a few other items.
  • File: 1969 Galaxie 500 XL

    This is a dealer promo from my uncle's Ford dealership. It was detailed to enhance its looks. Ford aficionados with note the placement of the antenna. I don't like it on the driver's side per factory specs.
  • File: 1970 Boss 302 Racer

    I combined Monogram 1970 Boss 302 Mustang and Monogram Havoline Ford Thunderbird 28 Texaco kits to create my Mustang racer. The paint is Tamiya Sky Blue with Testor's Wet Look Clear. The 302 has the NASCAR wheels and tires, fuel cell, fire extinguisher, and cage . Fun build with a one-of-a-kind finish...
  • File: 1970 Boss 429 Mustang

    This box-stock Mustang is painted with Testor's Grabber Orange. I had to sand the raised lettering off of the tires to apply the decals. Bare-Metal foil was used on the window trim. if you like Mustangs, pick up this kit. It is a nice representation of the 1:1 car.
  • File: 1970 Shelby GT-500

    This build started with a 1969 Shelby Fastback. It was converted into a 1970 convertible. Only two visible items were added to the leftover 1969s to make them 1970s: the front spoiler and hood stripes. When this project was completed, I saw the release of the 1969 Shelby convertible in a hobby store...
  • File: 1999 Mustang SVT Cobra

    This is my first model in many years, and my first post here. As a Mustang fan, this is my dream car. I built it straight from the box, using tips I found on the Scale Auto forum. No modifications other than my choice of exterior and interior colors. The tips I found were great, thanks! This is a Monogram...
