Completed Build: 1913 Ford Model T Speedster
Posted by BuildingCars4Fun on Thursday, February 13, 2020 9:33 PM

This was a lovely kit by ICM, super fun to build and really nice details. 

The colour i went with is Miami Blue by Splashpaints, no after market parts needed here, so its pretty much out of the box, but with my own colours. I added a few decals of emblems that I got from a Gundam decal sheet which I think finish it off nicely!

Excellent build.  Very nice photographs - all 29 of them.

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

Looks Great!  I might just have to find and build one of my own!

 

I am curious, though...the camber on the front wheels seems way to positive. Is that how the kit builds up, or maybe how Ford designed those things?

Cool build. These ICM Ford kits are intetesting. I think I need a couple, and the Speedster would be one of them. Nice work on this one.

It's actually how Ford designed them - the instructions have a front on view, and this is how the wheels sit!

Hi;

 I used to think that too!

 The first time I went to a car show for antiques and special interest cars It was at, Gasp! Pebble Beach! There were many older cars That I had Never heard of! The one thing I did notice though was the Camber on the front wheels of many of the roadsters and just plain stock cars from back then.

      I wonder if it was there to help center the wheels back to straight ahead on the bad roads of the time and very poor turning anyway! Can you imagine driving something like that to Californy back in the Day?
