I have searched far and wide for a Thunderbird in 1:12. Can anyone help. I’m not interested in NASCAR diecast. I have no specific year in mind

I'm not aware of a Thunderbird model in 1/12 scale.

Sorry, but you won't find it in that scale.  It doesn't exist.

@fharms Welcome aboard! As Marty stated, it doesn't exist; however, if you don't need it urgently and have a flexible budget, you can always commission one. I would recommend CMA Models (cmamodels.com). Marshall can build anything. If you can tolerate less details, I would recommend looking on Esty and find a 3D printing specialist. They can print one for you.

Are you looking for a 1/12 Thunderbird to display with something else in 1/12 scale?  Maybe a 1 inch scale dollhouse?  There are possibilities.

Hello Lu, I've been after a convertible Zil 114 for many years. There is some question as to whether one was ever built, but time was, one would see images of 1/43s about but never for sale. Then I happened upon a 3D print model and not knowing anything about that world didn't pursue it. I did ask the company but clearly they thought I was too backward, technologically, to respond to!  Would you recommend 3D printing or not?

(PICS) ITC (Ideal Toy Company) made a large motorized plastic model kit of a '55 T-Bird back in the day.  It was a 'customizing kit' so most of the ones that come up have some 'bling' glued on to the body and would require a rebuild to look stock.

It was a relatively simple and crude kit but I would estimate it to be around 1/12 scale.

Here is one that my brother and I restored in the last year or so.
