the frame or floor pan was warped. I knew that early on, but figured it would be acceptable??? the rear has tabs that fit into the body, the front just rests on pegs. Had to use plastic glue and clamp it to make it stay CA just wouldn't hold it.
,,,but in general it doesn't look too bad really. the front wheels are too far forward! The body is too short distance between rocker panels and top of doors too short. Check the pic of the real car, much more space between the fender flare and the trim
Christian That looks interesting, here I will watch excited.

Robert W Martel Hey Christian!
Yes, it's gonna be fun! But it will be worth the effort.
Looks like you've been busy yourself. Some great projects.
Keep up the good work!

Robert W Martel I gotta say this AMT kit was pretty bad as a whole. I had all kinds of fit problems with it. So far the only AMT kit I've built that was decent was the 49 Ford. I seem to remember as a kid that Revell kits were much better. The Revell kits I've built so far have been pretty good. The AMTs seem to have a lot of fit issues!
Robert W Martel Thanks again Christian. I should have paid more attention to the hood. The promo New Yorker was pretty warped. I straightened it side to side pretty well, but didn't realize is was so warped lengthwise. The 57 Windsor was a sweet car back in the days! I remember it well.
