1989 Ford Thunderbird Super Coupe SC Convertible

1989 Ford Thunderbird Convertable

 

This is a Revell 1989 SC Super Coupe Thunderbird kit.

It's basically stock, except that I made a convertible out of it and added a rear deck wing. I believe the wing may have been from a 1982-1992 Firebird (?).

This kit had the 3.8 V6, though some of the Revell Cougar and Thunderbird kits did have a 5.0 V8 I believe. The wheels are stock, and came with the kit. In case you're not aware, the Super Coupe's V6 was supercharged directly from Ford.

The car is painted a Testors metallic blue over a silver base. I cut a piece out of flat plastic stock and molded it into where the back seat would meet the deck lid. The roof I cut off, and left the front windshield visors, which look great. I'm glad Revell included those.

When I did the back deck lid, I used Squadron Green Putty. I liked this putty at the time, because it bonded very well with plastic. It seemed like it had actual model glue incorporated into it.

One thing about it was that it was rock hard once dry. I also found out after a few months of finishing the model that the putty began to soften up or shrink bad. This caused the deck lid to sag, and become concave a small bit.

I don't use the putty anymore, and for a while I switched to Dr Microtools putty, which was fantastic. But now that seems to be off the market as well. I found Testors orange putty to be similar to Dr Microtools, but then I switched to Tamiya White Putty.

Overall, this Ford Thunderbird is just an imaginary car that Ford never built. But I think it would have been a good idea.

Below is a picture of a Thunderbird Pace car at the Talledega Speedway in Georgia.
