I haven't even opened
the plastic bags inside my kit containing the parts. Just don't seem
to have the time right now. I haven't built a model kit for probably
20 years. The model is molded in gray plastic. Seems to have plenty
of chrome, even red inserts for the tail lights and inserts for wide
white wall tires. Rated a "2" skill level, which means age 10 and up
should be able to handle building it. Detail seems to be quite good.
Only the hood opens, doors and trunk are molded solid. I'm sure there
will be model buffs who make these things operational. Again, I'll
know a lot more once I get to start building it. In the meantime I
suggest that if you want one, you get it promptly, as these sorts of
things have a way of vanishing from sight before too long. Would also
make a dandy Christmas gift for an Edsel buff or perhaps the
offspring of an Edsel buff! Should you complete a model, consider
yourself encouraged to send me a photo. Scans of the box sides are
below, hopefully you'll be able to read the details.
Completed AMT Pacer Model Kit
pretty excited about the AMT Edsel model kit (which should be
available at your local hobby shop). You've seen the kit elsewhere on
this site, but I received the following note:
completed one."Spruce Green Metallic". This is a Poloriod picture.The
35mm's haven't been developed yet.I will send you some if you like
when I get them scanned. You may have seen my models on the Edsel
Owners of America's collectable page. 58Pacer,(black and red) and the
turquoise and white Bermuda Wagon.I will be sending the new one to
them also. G.Blanston"
Well, he got
his 35mm prints back, and I present some of them below. A fine job of
model building, and also a fine job of photography.
