1966 Ford Fairlane 427 SS/B
Posted by bogger44 on Wednesday, December 26, 2012 3:05 PM

Hey guys, I haven't been around much lately, but I did finish this one up on Christmas Eve.  Painted in Model Master Wimbeldon White (had to strip it once), and Gaurds Red.  Parts box decals and slicks.  I sourced the headers from a Revell Thunderbolt, and it took a lot of trimming and filing to get them to fit ok.  I had a fun time building this one, now on to the next project.

Very nice, Tony! Good to see another one of your excellent builds here. Definitely has "attitude" in addition to the detail and realism mentioned above. Really captures the subject.

Used to race those Fairlanes back in the 70's and your build brings back some great memories. Great job and thanks for sharing.

Beautiful! I've always meant to snag one of these kits. The urge is a little stronger, now! Bow

Great looking build. Smooth paint and super looking decals. The interior and engine look fantastic..

Excellent looking Fairlane, Bogger, really like the interior and paint! I've got a '66 in my stash that I bought with the idea to build it as a S/S and it's nice to see what mine might look like when I get around to building it. I love Fairlanes and I'm currently building a '64 that's stalled. Makes me want to get it going again. Thanks for sharing.

The whole car is terrific but that interior shot made me do a triple take. Very realistic!

Amazing build Bogger.  Love the details, everything looks great.  It's models like this that give me insperation for future builds.  I'll have to add this to my model bucket list!  

What did you use for the seat belts?

Thanks Franky.  It is a good kit, though it does have a few finicky fitment issues.  The seat belts are Model Car Garage pieces (material only, had to make my own buckles).

Hi Tony,

That is a very nice build. And I have to agree with the others you'd swear that you were looking at a real car with that interior shot. Great job!!!

That's an unbelievable build. I first said to myself, 'why did he upload a reference photo of the 1:1 interior?' ;-)
