I will use the (terrible) AMT kit and try to make it into something decent.
I started with photoshopping a picture, which will show a little bit of what I plan to do with it.


So, the major modification will be the stationwagon attachment. It comes in the kit, but it is all bad fitting.
Other modifications will be:
-Custom wheels
-Custom woody-panels
-Different floorboard and frame
-Modified interior
-Different engine
-More engine detail

Thanks guys, but it is already the end of the line.

I just did the inventory and a few important parts are missing, which include the front grill, hood, glass and the rear-suspension. I can probably fix all the problems, but not within 3 months.

I hope that I do not break any rules by quiting this project and find me a new box?

I've spent two hours of picking a new kit, but I think I have the one. I have enough kits at home, but it is still hard to make a choice. The main rivals were the '53 Bel Air, 41 Ford Woody and the '59 Impala.
I'm pleased to announce, it is going to be the '59. It will be difficult to finish it on time, but it also gives me a nice canvas to experiment with paint.
