Kustom based on an AMT '66 Thunderbird

Aiming for a taildragger look, not sure if I'll go with fins or have the back slope down to the bumper.
Front bumper will be a cut down desoto grill with pontiac bumpers grafted in (bumper will be narrower and lower than in the photo).

That's it for now....

Very good but I think the fins should be taller...


...than the roof.

Thanks for the comments, yes I'm a bit stuck on a few models at the moment but will slowly get them done.

I think fins will win, maybe give them a bit sharper top like a Caddy, we'll see!

Cool project. I like the look of it with fins, maybe even a continental rear end?
