So I was drawn to this kit like a moth to the flame...LOL
It is a pretty old molding I guess but it bears up well,only a few mold lines were visible..


Lots of goodies in the kit - straight into the spares box as I will be doing it near standard.



So got the shell done in resale red!


The underside was just done flat black with a bit of blowover with the red.


Then it was cleared,next up will be foiling it and assemble...I said near std,I am changing the wheels - JOHN J look away! I have a history with him and Al not quite liking my big wheels on classics...LOL

Nigel:  You can do whatever you want with this one.  I've never thought of the 61 Galaxie as a classic.  Wheels don't make a difference one way or the other.

Looks like a fine paint finish, Nigel. Is 'Resale Red' the actual named color? LOL

Actually Mike I used to be in the trade and there are various nicknames for colours so resale red refers to a red car that will sell quickly and ''doom blue'' is a navy/dark blue..........

Well I got the foiling done and it was tricky,the worst so far.Then I decided to tint the windows,easy as I have a pound shop two doors down!
The wheels went on nicely alough I needed to make a new axle as the track as too narrow,It is completed now and I will post pics on the apropriate section shortly...

Nigel:  I like your color choice.  I've never been a fan of any of the 1961 Fords, but yours will look pretty good after all.
