This is the very old Lindberg kit which I'm building as one of the cars which took part in the Great migration west during the depression era in America. I'll be filling it with all sorts of household goods (Maybe even the kitchen sink)

Not much in the box

Detail is clunky to say the least so I'll attempt to replace some of it and enhance whats there

Surprised to see this ole clunker being a 'Ford licenced product' .Its sad to see car manufacturers holograms on Airfix kits with individual licence numbers . Presumably this adds a cost to each kit .Smaller kit manufacturers can't deal with these multinationals and at one stage even the RAF were trying to get their pound of flesh for 'their' roundels !

Never even noticed that. IIRC I bought this over ten years ago in Marks.

Great idea for a diorama very original. May the ghost of Tom Joad be with you.

I love the sounds of this Pat. Plenty of scope for a weathered finish. 1/24? Some dollhouse furniture might be useful scale wise?

Enjoy!

On the bench:
1/16 Trumpeter T-72B1 with Kontakt ERA
1/35 AML-30 prototype
1/35 Djibouti BTR-60 with AML-90 turret
1/72 S-Models BMD w/scratch slat armour.
And about 100 other part built kits... ;)
