1964 Ford Falcon Hardtop Stock Plus (1/25) (fs)
The picture you see above is not a 1964 Showroom Promotion from Ford Motor Company, but a nicely built Trumpeter model kit. This kit was built by Japanese Modeler CALKICHI1973 a regular participant on the Scale Auto Enthusiast Magazine Forum. Calkichi says that he completed the kit in 2 weeks and built the kit box stock with no modifications. Of the build-ability Calkichu goes on to say that the kit went together well with "no tricky points". The kit is painted in 1964 Ford Raven Black with Red Interior. The other pictures you see feature a few of the parts trees from early test shots. This is a very robust kit with well over 100 parts and features an authentic detailed, engine, chassis, interior and body.
The Ford Falcon established itself as the leading seller in the US compact car market soon after its 1960 introduction. For the 1964 model year, Ford redesigned the body lines of the Falcon, and added a Sprint Package. The Sprint Package gave the Falcon a sporty interior, a 260 cu. in. V8 engine, stiffer suspension, and a louder exhaust. The new Trumpeter kit is buildable as a factory stock version, or can be customized with optional engine accessories and wheels. Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price is $54.90.
Trumpeter has three versions of the 1964 Falcon to be released this year. The hardtop, featured here, is first with a Convertible slated for late Summer and a "too cool" Ranchero version for the Fall. We had lobbied for a Station Wagon version, but unfortunately the kit designer, an AMT veteran, could not find a Wagon close by to measure the proportions. He did have a 1:1 Ranchero handy, so we do have that to look forward to. Our thanks to our friends at Stevens International for the test shot pictures. The kit includes many more parts, and the test shot pictures here only show a few of the highlights.
