Scale Models

Like many “car kids” of my generation, we grew up building scale models of cars long before we could build the real thing. I’ve always been interested in scale auto models from a very young age. Unfortunately none of those models survived to be shown here and I’m not even sure where they went. However, in the 1980’s I had a renewed interest in scale building when our local auto club I was an officer in started having some group build times and comps. Here are the survivors.

1940 Ford Coupe Drag Car

This was an early on build mixing a funny car and a ’40 Coupe kit together

1970 Boss 429 Mustang

Basic build with polished plastic paint but detailed engine.

1985 Thunderbird Drag Car

Had a 1986 TC and loved the drag look so detailed this one out.

1987 Thunderbird Turbo Coupe Drag Car

Wanted a 1987 TC but couldn’t afford it so built from stock TC kit and Pro Stock kit.

1940 Ford Sedan Street Rod

Built in the late 1980s this one was quite a bit of work but never received any awards
