COMPLETE: Customer's 1988 Ford Thunderbird
Posted 13 April 2008 - 11:10 PM
It was built using a Turbocoupe, which is essentially the same body-wise. Colour is Ford Twilight Blue Metallic... Seatbelts added using masking tape and styrene... Wheels are 10-Hole Ford Wheels by Replicas and Miniatures of Maryland (they're AWESOME), with the hubcaps in place as the customer requested. The engine is from a Revell 5.0 Mustang.
Turns out the 1988 base Thunderbird had a unique grille that was never made in scale form, and would've been rather difficult to duplicate... Luckily, the real car has a bra on it, and the customer said he'd love to see it on the model, so I gave it a shot. It's masking tape painted semi-gloss black, detailed with a Sharpie. Gaps were cut for the headlights, and a blank spot for the license plate that'll be added later. I think it turned out pretty good, as it has folds and little wrinkles much like the real one has.
