I'm not an expert modeller. And I've been away from the hobby for quite awhile. My last model, the Model Shipways Phantom Pilot Boat, took me 20 years to finish, from purchase to completion, which was just last weekend. Go here for photos of that model. But I enjoyed building plastic models as a kid, and I'm going to try it again.
I bought my Dad one of these kits last year. Then I bought myself the same kit so we could build them together. But my Dad lives in a climate with snow and rain, perfect weather for modelling. I live in a place where it is sunny 90% of the time so I'm more often working on the yard, fixing a car, the things you do when it is sunny out. My modelling is a slower process so I'm just starting my kit now.
This is just a way to document my build of this kit. I couldn't find any information on it when I was trying to research it a year ago. Maybe this will help somebody thinking about building one of these Testors Lincoln Mint kits. My goal is to build a nice model that will display well, with extra detailing. I'm not building an accurate model of a specifid real car. I'm going to experiment as I go. I'm going to try some things I haven't tried before like washes, scratchbuilding and extra detailing with found objects like electrical wire. If the model looks good when I'm done I will have succeeded.
