The old Revell kit from the late 80's. I've wanted to build this one for a while....

Finished in Tamiya TS-8 Italian Red and TS-26 White.

Nice work on the T-Bird. One of my favorites from that era.

I always wanted to build that kit and never got around to it. You did a great job and may have even inspired me to get in gear!

Very nice

I've been looking at this kit in my cupboard.

Did you have any trouble with the decals / age?

Looks like you did a smashing job !

Thanks!

To my surprise, the decals were still pretty good, and not very yellowed. The adhesive needed some help in some places though. I usually glue the ends of decals that wrap around the wheel openings/bumpers anyways.

Very nice work, congrats. One of my favs from that era.  I built one many moons ago and it didn't turn out near as well as yours. Think I'm gonna have to pick up the reissue......

WOW VERY NICE JOB ON THAT T-BIRD. The other day I posted in the "What's New" section about how great it was that the GODS of model cars listened to the masses lol...Anyway I 'am really pleased that a few of these 80s Pro Stock cars are coming back. These are the kits that I started building when I first got into this fun, and CRAZYStick out tongue hobby of ours. I used to buy them at either Toys R Us, K-Mart, or Child World...Well I guess those guys on EBAY who are asking an arm, and a leg for these 80s Pro Stock cars, will now have to lower their prices A LOT .Oh well too bad guys.
