Just some test shots with my first or second car model. 15ish years old, no wax, no polish, no clear coat, no BMF, mostly OOB.



1:25 1969 Ford Galaxie Hard Top (AMT/ERTL 38154)

Cool to see that kit built! The cover of the box couldn't catch my interesst at anytime. Yours looking great. The lowered suspension makes a lot to it.

Thx Christian. I also do not like these box covers showing pictures of a finished OOB model, they look like "cheap toy" to me. I prefer real pictures or these vintage drawings. The suspension is OOB, if I remember correctly. This model was my first attempt to apply a black wash to the grille, being happy with easy application and the result.

The box art in the 2000 were not that nice. I agree with the toy-look. I'm so glad, they (eg. Round2) go back to the vintage box art.

Exactly! E.g. the allison thunderland cover, which fits such an "old" car way better.
