1958 Ford Thunderbird Custom Model kit


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 kit.

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 stopped.

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. Maybe it will give you a model idea ?

One of the kits I used was an Elvira version.

  • Rod Powell's Flame Painting Techniques - The book shows the proper techniques in laying out the patterns and masking the design. His use of 1/4" masking tape for the design is the best way to go. Excellent book for the beginner or professional custom spray painter. The book is filled with color photographs of the various flame painting techniques and styles. The book also includes three step by step tutorials, with +/- 20 photos per tutorial on flaming cars and motorcycles. This book is definitely good value for money and I'll recommend it any day to any painting enthusiast.
