41 Lincoln.
Posted by arcturus on Monday, December 12, 2016 6:13 AM

This kit has had a bit of a hard time. I originally painted it maroon about 7 years ago. Started to build it but the paint wasn't great so I bathed it in brake fluid.I couldn't separate the wheel hubs from the tyres to repaint them,and broke the suspension so I threw it back in the box which was an old monogram flat box. It slowly worked its way to the bottom of the pile getting crushed. By the time I'd salvaged it the window frame had snapped in 3 places , the suspension assembly crushed and I had lost a wheel. This year I decided to tackle it again, found the wheel again to, and so here it is.

Actually, this model is very good. It's the Lindberg Pyro 1948 that's hard to make look good (unless you customize it or hot rod it. ) The wheels stink on the 1948. This Monogram I made in the 70's, and its a sweet kit. You done a super nice rendition.

You Know ;

 If you took the pains to make a silk purse out of a mild sow's ear the 48 can look good then you'd have two grand looking Lincolns !

Awesome save. I also have that kit in my stash. At one time I thought they were going to reissue it. I would sure like to see it again. The 48 Lincoln kit sucks!

Excellent save and that color really fits those beautiful body lines.  I also have one I bought in a plastic bag at a model show; I have some differenat ideas for it.

I build models because I can't afford the real thing!

Yes, nice save. I'm glad you choose to resurect this build, and the blue looks great on those classic Lincoln lines. A very nice looking model.
