Funny you should post this...I haven't done a plastic model for probably over 35 years. Came across a 66 FB model a few weeks ago while at Hobby Lobby with SWMBO...bought it as an early Christmas present to myself and am now in the process of building and painting the same as my car as much as possible.

BTW- having a blast doing it and have found that I have more patience as I've aged. SWMBO thinks I've spent too much $$ on it though!

Nice...I used to live in Glendale in the late '80s (75th & Glendale area) things have surely changed there as I noticed last time I was back about 5 years ago. I worked for a telecommunications company in Phoenix and the owner was into hot rods and he managed to get my old car bug reinforced much to my wife's chagrin. I've always told my wife at least I'm not hanging out in bars and chasing women!!

Couldn't find a 66 FB model without being a Shelby so the hood will not be correct to mine (may have to change the hood on my car to match the model??- its only $$ right?) Was able to find Tahoe Turquoise shake and shoot so the exterior will match. Working on painting pony interior tomorrow - white/aqua.

Kit came with white and blue decals...not sure if I'm going to use to match my LeMans stripes or try to paint black stripes instead. May just eliminate the stripes for now to see how it looks.

I'll post more pics after interior paint!! - John

Finally got some more painting done and am starting to put the chassis together...Have some touch up to do (seats especially) after I glue some more together..

Are you planning on painting your new purchase (the full size car) back to Emberglo? I love that color and wish I could have found a FB in that color scheme with pony two-tone interior.

Maybe in a few years my next one will have to be Emberglo in a Coupe or Vert!! I'll have to convince my wife how good she would look driving it.

Dropped the motor in today along with the interior assembly. I also installed front and rear glass along with rear valance, taillights and gas cap.

Hope to be adding front valance panels and bumpers front and rear during the football games tomorrow!!

Starting to shape up!! I can start to see light at the end of the tunnel!

I could never finish a model as a kid but I have about 5 waiting for me to find the time. I am about 3/4 of the way through a custom "Death Proof" Nova and I am doing a 70 fastback to replicate my dads when he was a kid for his birthday. I also have a charger, a Shelby, a 99 cobra to replicate my 2000, and a 69 that I will build to be what I want my real 69 to be.

Been years since i put a model together. Use to paint them up like the cars i had at one time or was driving then. Really was fun to do. Don't think i have the patience now and also usually working on the full scale models now. Remembering even fixing up some Chevy models like the 55 ( I think) yellow Badman model among others.

I used to build model cars a lot when I was a kid. (And, BTW, I lived in north Phoenix at the time.)

I used to "wire" the engines with red and black thread and model glue. It makes the engine look really cool with simulated plug wires and battery cables. Just cut a piece of thread to length, grab it with tweezers and dip each end into some glue. Attach one end to the correct area on the cylinder head, then the other end to the distributor. (If you really want to get technical, you can even follow the correct firing order.) Then run some thread to simulate battery cables.
