resin 66 fairlane 2 dr post sedan builds
Posted by ddpod on Saturday, September 06, 2014 4:28 PM

hello everybody,

 might not get any reply on this, but was wondering if anybody out there has built a 66-67 fairlane using a resin 2 door post body. i found 1 66  from  modelhaus, and one 66 comet resin body from motor city resins.

this is my 1:1 fairlane I'm wanting to build.

Hi I have both kit's I use a lot of the kits and parts from both modelhaus and moter city both great guys to work with and have top quality products.  Sorry I do not have any photos I hope to have some soon. With the 67 Comet 202 you may have to do a little sanding here and there and the same for the fairlane. you can also mix and match a lot of the parts from the AMT doner kits. Good luck and post pictures.--Rick.

Hi again on the Comet you can use the stock chrome rear bumper and light. by just cutting out the center panel with a #11 X-blade I did it it worked very nice.

Your other option would be to use an AMT/ERTL 66 fairlane coupe, and if you could find a cheap junker 66-67 Falcon, graft the roof from it to the Fairlane. The Comet 202 and Falcon actually use a shorter rear deck than Fairlanes but the roof for the 2 door sedans are the same for all three cars.

If I were to build the car in the picture, I would do the following:

Get a Modelhaus '66 Fairlane 2 Door Post body kit, along with Modelhaus' 1967 Fairlane grille, Tail Lamps & Bezels, and rear bumper; Keith Marks' 67 Fairlane Decals, Scratchbuild all of the mouldings. You're on your own for the Hubcaps, as I do not know of an available source for those particular wheel covers. Several years ago, I was able to score a glue-bomb AMT '67 Fairlane GT, which I did this, with a lot of work.

If I were doing a build of that car, I would get a Modelhaus '66 Fairlane 2 Door Post body trans-kit, along with Modelhaus' 1967 Fairlane grille, Tail Lamps & Bezels, and rear bumper; Keith Marks' 67 Fairlane Decals, Scratchbuild all of the mouldings.

Looking at your project, I would love to do the Dragnet Car, which is similar to what you are planning to do, except that it is a 4-door.

The kits you have mentioned are very difficult to find. Being an assignment geek I have only heard of it few times in my career showing the rarity of the kits. However, you can do manual search on your locality to find one.

AMT has reissued the 69 Falcon super stocker several times which was the old factory stock kit cut up into a racer. The body was hacked, but I think the top was still the same. This kit can be found fairly cheap and that top looks like it could be usded with the AMT 67 Fairlane.
