PostSubject: 58 Edsel Pacer.   Sat 18 May 2013, 7:09 pm

Hi gents,thought I would show my take on the most unloved car of all time.But one with an amazing options list.
It is painted in a Tamiya candy blue with black roof and accents,the wheels are big moderns and it took about 3 hours to mask the wheels so that the spokes could be done body colour! :lol:

Apart from the home made discs,wheels and colour it is pretty much oob.Ohh yeahh and dropped at the front.It is an AMT/ERTL kit and VERY nicely engineered,I would certainly recommend it to anyone interested in Edsels.

Great lookin' Ed-sel! LoL I've always found these cars kinda sexy. Odd design, but bein' the 50's who'd a thunk? Great paint. Love the flames and the wheels give it a nice 90's Custom Feel. Great job! 8)

Nice Edsel. You don't see this kit built much. You did an excellent job.

If I had the bucks when the kits came out I'd have bought a number. Edsels were unusual and about as overdone in design as the '58 Mercury Turnpike Cruiser.
On the wheelmasking, for odd and compound curves, there's a rubber-cement-like "liquid frisket" which is a nice possibility. Thanx for doing an odd and underloved make.

Nice job Nigel. I've always really liked the Edsel. A guy I worked for had one back in 1960 or so. I got to drive it once and loved it. Too much money for me at the time though.
