1966 Ford Galaxie 500
Round 2 hit a nice spot with the AMT 1966 Ford Galaxie 500. Build it stock, custom, or racing. The box contains all the parts to build it your way and some extra pieces for the parts box.
The kit provides enough parts to build either the stock engine or a SOHC engine. Either version does not fit together very well.
The chassis is engraved fairly well but the suspension parts leave much to be desired. The front suspension is much too thick for scale.
It’s just a tub and the engraving is almost non-existent on the side panels. In fact, the only redeeming parts are the seats.
Very little cleanup of flash or mold lines was required on the body. All emblems are molded in and fairly well engraved except the pillar trim. The body was primed with Duplicolor sandable primer followed by HOK cocoa pearl. The body was then cleared with Nason 2 part urethane clear and was sanded, polished and waxed.
This was a fair kit to work on and Round 2 needs to be commended for bringing back an old kit. Thank you also to IPMS for allowing me to review this kit.
