Project in progress: Lindberg 1934 Ford pickup street machine
Posted by kerc on Wednesday, March 3, 2004 2:17 PM
This baby has been chopped 6" in scale, will have a mean supercharged Ford 427 engine, and have the rear tires tubbed (it's not a prostreet, tho).

Hope you guys like it so far! Big Smile

Very nice. Thank you for sharing it with us.Big Smile
How do you like the kit?? I have one that I haven't taken out of the plastic wrap yet.
I married my wife for her looks, just not the ones she gives me when I bring home new model kits.

Thanks, flahotrod. Smile

It's pretty cool. It has two engines (one of them a flattie), the molding is nice, parts fit well, and the proportions seem to be very precise. Only thing I don't like is the shiny plastic--I gotta kill that shine with some 0000 steel wool, to be sure that the PlastiKote primer grabs on well.

I was told today that the kit was an old AMT kit. This is reported to be a classic and a great kit.
I'm hopelessly addicted to building models. Not finishing them, just building them.

Looks cool. Surprisingly good kit for it's age. And it has so many possibilities style-wise too. I used tthis kit as basis for the "Hook's Hauler" in the Light Commercial CBP. but yours will look totally different. With fenders it looks lower, wider, and more agressive. I like it!!Thumbs Up

I guess this has to be answered by some of the guys with a bit more silvery stain in the hair than me. I know I've seen this info somewhere, but can't remember. My oldest reference on this is a '78 AMT catalogue, and it's there, but my guess is mid-to-late sixties...?Confused

That's pretty old, and makes the kit even more amazing. I wonder what has happened with all those molds Lindberg acqiured...

Looking pretty nasty kerc. I do love 'em low.

By the way, according to theOctober '93 issue of Scale Auto the '34 was first released in 1963 as a 3 in 1 kit by AMT.

Glad I found your post. Love it so far. I built this one 5 years back painted it red with a stake bed. Gave to my Mother, she loves the old cars and trucks. Oh, as to it's age, I'd say 60's as well, I built it back in the in the mid 60's as well as my silver hair head can remember

Great work!

My dad had the last AMT issue of this kit, building it box stock, and I bought the second Lindberg version and made the stake bed truck as a factory stock.

I'm amazed that you can do so much with that terrible "High Gloss" plastic Lindberg used to mould it in. I had so many troubles with cleaning up the seam lines with my knife. Great job!
