Bought this resin 62 T Bird from KKM a few months back. Looks fairly easy. They're a little spendie, but what a beautiful car!

You can build it Custom or................. yeh, RACE.

Here's how it comes.


Spent part of the day cleaning up the flash on all the parts and putting the sweet T- Bird engine with 3 quads together.



This may take awhile, because I'd like a great paint job and wheels. So bear with me fellas. Thanks for lookin.

Ooooooh! the looks so slinky Bruce.

Never heard of KKM. Is it a complete kit? and if you don't mind me asking, how spendie is spendie?

I'm no ford fan, but this is one they should have made in the 1:1.

Seriously,seriously good looking. Looking forward to seeing more of this bad boy.

I know it's seven years too early but that would make a great 'what if' NASCAR wing car!!!

Hi Al,

I've just done a quick Google and found this, not sure if it is the same one Bruce used, but the resins kits look about the same...: - Kaucher Kustoms

They have some very, very nice shells etc...

It says you need the AMT 1962 Tbird kit to complete it on the box Al,

That is indeed a sleek looking car.
I thought the box art looked suspiciously like the AMT design. I missed the faint print in red that Snake pointed out.
So, yeah, buying another kit for everything else but the body would make it pricey. But that is the norm for resin aftermarket cars.
Do it proud, Dog.

That's correct Andy. The resin kit has to go with the 62 T-Bird kit to complete.

I paid $85, which is way too much for what you get.   But, I bought it anyway.   The interior side panels are exactly like the kit, as are the front and rear bumpers.   Today after working on them for a couple hours, trying to get them to fit, I checked the kits and they're better.   My opinion, so far, is save your money.   My bad, I'm building it anyway.

I had not heard of it before. The lines are different from the T-Bird's formal roof line, I like it! Price is a surprise, but I'm Mr Cheap. Good luck and thanx for a very interesting choice!

Thanks guys. Been sanding the body and checking for flaws, before she gets primer.
