1992 T-Bird SC OOB
Posted by Faust on Wednesday, January 27, 2021 8:40 PM
Sometimes, it’s the ones that you least expect that surprise you the most. After years of trying to create “BMW Fighters” in the form of the abortive Mustang SVO and Merkur XR4Ti and even Taurus SHO, Ford finally got a hit with the tenth-generation Thunderbird Super Coupes. With slick styling, legitimate (for the day) performance and advanced suspension, the T-Bird SC was as close as any of the Big Three ever really got to competing with Germany and Japan back in the day.
 
Just like how the T-Bird surprised its rivals, I was blown away that the Revell 1992 T-Bird SC beat out things like the MPC Schwinn Krate and AMT Pinterra to take top spot in my poll a few weeks ago. Surprising people seems to be the SC’s way of doing things! I know I was surprised to find out how good this kit actually is, too! Check out this oft-forgotten kit from the time when Revell US really knew what it was doing, and “daily driver” models were still a thing!

Looks like a nice kit. Show progress pics when you build it.

I built the original back in 1992-1993.  Needs a good cleaning and a left headlight lens.

I had a 1990 SC and it was a pure rocket, and a blast to drive

Nice work on your build Yes.

Oho!

 Now was and is still a very nice kit. I believe it to be one of REVELL'S best. Unless you find a REVELL model of the Fox bodied Mustang with Ford" Rotunda" markings. That little jewel was awesome too! It came out sometimes in the early Eighties!
