Completed Build: 1913 Ford Model T Speedster
Posted by BuildingCars4Fun on Thursday, February 13, 2020 9:31 PM

This was a lovely kit by ICM, super fun to build and really nice details. 

The colour i went with is Miami Blue by Splashpaints, no after market parts needed here, so its pretty much out of the box, but with my own colours. I added a few decals of emblems that I got from a Gundam decal sheet which I think finish it off nicely!

Oh My!

       Now that's when a small car like that was still bigger than my Kia Soul! I love your color chouce! The brass effects against that beautiful blue really sets it off! Most folks don't remember that at one time some auto tyres were White or a Light sand color either ! Outstanding !!

Very nicely done!

Ford never built a speedster, they were the period hot rods built mostly by soldiers returning from the war out of mix and match parts on the cheap, but some of the craftsmanship was amazing. Putting in the early OHC engines, better breathing carbs, lowering the chassis, and more streamlined bodies generated some of the early dirt track racers.

I've been working on one in my garage now for several years with a 1915 engine with starter, 1917 fenders, 1918 chassis, and the usual minimalist body. Note there are no seat belts, they can be quite exciting to ride in when you don't have a steering wheel to hold on to...
