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

Everyone is 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:

"I have 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.
