Here is an old one for you guys…Its a reissue of the old Revell 1:25th scale 1950 Ford F-1 kit.  This model reissue is of the street rod version but it does come with some of the old stock parts like the steely wheels, and hubcaps. It does have the old flathead block and some of the other parts but it replaces the flatheads with two chrome Hemi type heads and a three carburettor intake.
The body and chassis parts are moulded in crisp white plastic with red lenses for the chrome tail-light plus the clear parts for the windows and headlights. All the parts seem to still be pretty crisp with hardly any flash even after about 10 years since the model was first released.
The model went together fairly well as expected but I did do some altercations to make it personalized. I blacked out two of the kits really nice pop-in white wall tires and then added rust, dirt and grim along with a few parts box extras in the simulated wood bed.
Well after all these years of building planes, tanks, figures and a load of other type of models this 1:25th scale model kit just reminded me how fun and rewarding it could be! I recommend this kit to the pro or the novice….it’s a great kit either way!
