1958 thunderbird model kit


A Monogram 1958 Thunderbird.

Way long ago, I always wanted a Batmobile Kit. So I was thinking at the time I could make something similar out of a 1958 Thunderbird model.

I glued the front and rear bumpers, hood, and doors and molded them into the body lines with putty. I also took another 1958 kit and cut out the trunk area, and molded this section into the car covering where the back seats normally would be.

About where I reached that stage, a Resin Batmobile Kit became available, and the project was shelved.

Years later I went back to it, thinking it would still make a nice custom. I added the wide white walls and painted the model Testors baby blue. I added some pinstriping decals.

Some time later, small hairline cracks began to appear around the rear deck lid area from where the putty had set (again, this being years after I started the project).

So once more, the kit was abandoned. Eventi=ually I sold it to another modeler who saw potential with it.

Maybe it will give you a model idea ?

Below is when the car was in primer.
