A Model Affair

Model Thunderbird cars from the 50s & 60s


Guess I was too busy sniffing the “Airfix” glue and building B-29 SuperFortresses, Hawker Hurricanes and Typhoons, as well as the odd Spitifre, to notice all the cool Tbird model kits available back in my youth.

I really like some of the earlier box art illustrations, particularly the 1958 ‘Four-Way Customizing Kit’ above. Love the 62 kit with the blue night-time scene, although not quite sure what the guy beside his ’62 is up to!

Tracy likes the clean-cut employee in the photo above. So wholesome.
