Monogram '57 Ford Del Rio Ranch Wagon 1/24


Recommended Posts

A superbly detailed kit from Monogram which can be built either as standard or police/sheriff versions. The build itself was straightforward with only minor issues of a few vague placements and an odd build order. Of course I always have at least one 'senior moment' with my builds where I make a mistake or generally mess up and this one is no exception. When I discover the error of my ways, it's usually too late to remedy :crying:

I like that a lot :clap:

Very neat stripes - how much grief did they cause?

 

 

A lot of grief but not as much as the masking fail between the black and white. Cleaning up took me ages and still not perfect.

Ooh damn you.  I had one of these kits in my hand this weekend...but ultimately put it back on the shelf.  I had visions of building a hot rod wagon by kitbashing this kit and one of the Shelby GT350 kits I have laying in the stash.

Looks sharp.

Was your senior moment when you was placing the Ford decal on the bonnet by any chance? 😉
