'25 Ford 5 Window "Tall T"

Post by Jerry Ol'55 on Wed 08 Jun 2016, 10:27 pm

G'day guys... hoping someone out there might be able to help me with some "mm"s (measurements). Very Happy
I bought the Lindberg '25 Tall T kit off "the bay"... it was advertised as 1/25, even though the box states 1/24.
Anyway on opening the "sealed" kit, and taking a gander at the contents, the size of this model seems more like 1/28?.dunno Not happy considering all my builds are 25th.
Anyhoo, I was wondering if any of you have built or have a kit handy of the AMT version of this model, if you can kindly inform me of the following measurements. (see pic below). Any help, advice etc. would be much appreciated, as I reckon the body etc. could be fairly simple to enlarge if required.

Thanks Fellas. twothumbsup

The Lindberg and AMT bodies are pretty much identical and interchangeable.

Model T's are small and narrow even in 1/1 scale but these kits work well with parts from any other 1/24 or 1/25 scale kit and the size difference late model parts to original T is as it is in 1/1 scale.



Only the body, windows, seat and fenders are from the Lindberg kit, the remainder is AMT, Monogram and aftermarket.

Thanks so much Carps mate!...Very Happy You're a legend!... I honestly felt dissapointed thinking that this model kit was smaller than 1/25.
Thanks again my friend for your comments and the pics of your Model 'T', which incidentally looks great! twothumbsup

I have taken some pics that shows the difference in size of the parts to these models.
