THE INVADERS 1967 1/43 SCALE
I present myself, Dominique, i am French and i like modeling and simulations on a scale of 1/43.
Some time ago, i bought these two items, the goal is to combine them and make a new model...
The cab recovered on the toy "Ideal Motorific" had to be refreshed...
And here we are in 1967 somewhere on the border between Nevada and California...I hope you'll enjoy.
To be continued...!
Bon jour Dominique,
That is a beautiful model, great modelling work involved there. Also, stunning photography !
Thank-you for treating us.
Tres bien monsieur!
This is what I was expecting.
Great diorama scenes using the iconic Ford C series truck that was built for 33 years from 1957 to 1990 in many configurations including some fire appliances. Here are two from Athern from my collection.

Bienvenue, Domi! 😀 Etes-vous Mike, peut-etre? @mikedetorrice He has similar photos, mais il est Americain! 😉 😉 😉 Mais, you have great scenes. I tease because Mike has some similar photos here - I have not seen his UFOs in a longtime, c'est dommage. 😎
I was hooked on that TV show !!
Kind of like 'their' finger...
@100ford2003 It was a one of a zillion Quinn Martin productions in the mid-sixties and they drove Fords in every one of them. The series is running on a local channel here in NJ at 4:00 AM sporadically and if I see it coming, I'll DVR it. I just saw the episode where David Vincent actually captured a saucer and you got to see inside. It was rather disappointing though. I think their prop and set budget was about $100 an episode. LOL
If I remember correctly, there was a plastic model of the flying saucer. I don't remember what company made it. Got it, it was Aurora. Had the Chariot model from Lost In Space also. They made some good stuff !
Had the Seaview model too ! Loved that series !
Hello everyone! 😀
Thank you for your welcome! I am very happy to see that you share ma enthusiasm for this series.
I am not Mike but if he has UFOs to show, i am interested!! 😉
When it was released in France in 1972,this series met with great success; i discovered it when i was 10 years old. I loved the atmosphere with beautiful cars in desert lands and a musical background so gripping... 👍
I try to convey that atmosphere here...Second PART...
Ford Galaxie 500 Four Door 1965 "Trax Models".
(As it is an Australian version, i had to use editing software to place the steering wheel on the left.)
Lincoln Continental Four Door 1964 "Minimarque 43".
Chevrolet Impala Sport Sedan 4 doors 1963 "Kess models":
To be continued...tomorrow! 😉
Wow!!!! Thank-you !!
I love your pics !!
These are a great way to start my day. I'm looking forward to seeing more posts from you. You've got some really nice models.
@100ford2003 I just thought the Seaview was such a beautiful design. Only edging it out in desirability was the steam punk "Nautilus" from Disney's "20000 Leagues Under the Sea". Licensing for that model was so confiscatory that for many decades there wasn't a licensed model available... just cottage industry resins sold under the table. I finally scored a decent resin body and with some kit-bashing and a lot of work, I finally got a decent model. Naturally right after I finished it, Disney finally released a beautiful model.
@100ford2003 Thank you Steve. I hope your day ended well too! See you tomorrow! 🙂
Or the floating city, MSC Seaview? 🤣 😉 😀

@domi7777 As far as scenes for "the Invaders", as long as you use mid-sixties Fords, you'll be fine. I assume Quinn Martin Productions had a long term leasing agreement with Ford to cut costs and for Ford it was free advertising.
