1940 Ford Staff Car, Lindberg Kit in 1/32
Built for the Car Dealership Campaign ( I made the ribbon for this campaign )
January 1, 2013 - July 1 , 2013
Base coat is Humbrol 155 Olive Drab with a lighter shade of Model Master Olive drab for highlights and gloss coated. The Decals are from various leftovers I had in the spares box.
I managed to build something I wanted to try for a while, namely one of these 1/32th scale Lindberg kits I see in the stores.
This kit cost me $3.99, and if you look at the photos enough you will prob see why it was so cheap. I think the molds for this one was tooled back in the 1950's. I built it out of the box, and although the kit isn't all that much, with some care you can get something decent.
I didn't spend a whole lot of time with it but I did have some fun with it.
Backstory for this 1940 Ford Convertible Staff Car.
