Anthony's Model Cars
1925 Ford Model T Pickup barn find
This is an old, build AMT kit
which I bought at an auction some time ago. I know from the owner
that it is an old kit so I presume it's probably one of the AMT Ford
promotion kits which came in the box with the green stripes.
I had plans to use the model for another conversion, but when I receivedthe model it had a beautiful patina. The dust it gathered over the years was so life-like that I simply couldn't brake it apart for parts. So I kept it as I received it. I informed the owner about this and he said that he was glad that he didn't cleaned the kit too well before shipping it. He got rid of the heavy dust, but decided to leave the rest as it was. I'm glad he did! Ofcourse I did send hem some pictures of the diorama I set up and he was very pleased to see that his old kit got a decent home.
The only thing I added was a license plate at the front. And a lot of tools! The car needed some work to get it safely on the road after all those years in a barn.
