Early and mid 1920s Model T passenger vehicles
I'd hoped DM would have made a sedan and coupe to go with their Touring and Roadster versions. I've found a 1/25 (somewhat limited quality) AMT coupe kit and I've seen a sedan kit around too. I have a few Model T commercial and utility models as well, including a couple in work which I'll try and post all together.
together once the couple are finished.
Geoff, I really like the coupe and wished DM had done it I like your build.
thanks Bob, is there a more iconic car in automotive history?
Gentlemen of the larger scale: I am a denizen of Forum 43, but I enjoy browsing all the cites; Forum 24 often interests me, especially this treatise on the Model T. A few years ago, as I passed my 80th year, I re-awakened an old interest - assembling car kits. The vast majority of the 30 or so I have built since then have been 1/43, but there are exceptions. Here are a few examples:
As I enjoyed Mr. Jowett's comments and good pictures on the Model T situation, I remembered this one and finally found it:
The model is described as a 1909 Sport Runabout Ford Model T, and the side panels also show a depot hack (which I do not have). No scale is listed anywhere, but I think it's about the size your forum likes. (added later: I found the depot hack for sale on eBay and it was listed as scale 1/20.) There is no date of manufacture on the box. The place of origin is Dyersville, IA, home of many metal toys (ERTL) and kits some twenty or thirty years ago. I just wondered if this one is interesting, forgotten, or not worth fooling with.
Keep those "big ones" going, guys. I wish I had more room!

@d-m-holcombe thanks for sharing those David, yes I check other scale forums too. I have around 40 1/43s and will add more, but I started in 1987 with 1/24 so thats where I've stuck! I too started kit building again after about 60 years and after retirement. Now I'm hooked, cant stop! I love Model Ts. Have 12 1/24s, diecast and kits and will add more. Heres a couple of kit examples I've posted recently.
here a friend added the real wood stakebed:
Nice work Geoff
