1928 Model A Ford
Ford produced 15 million Model Ts between 1908 and 1927, but as other manufacturers' products improved, and included features such as the electric start, sales of the Model T were dwindling. The time had come to produce a new model.
Henry Ford was disdainful of the cosmetic styling of cars, preferring the practical functionality of the Model T; thankfully, he gave his son Edsel the responsibility of leading the Model A design team. The result was a 1920's classic.
The majority of parts in the kit are white metal, and are designed for screw assembly, additional detail parts are made from injection moulded plastic; although this is a detailed kit, there is no glazing supplied for the windscreen, I will rectify this. The amount of flash on the white metal parts is excessive, making some parts difficult to identify without referring to the illustrated instruction sheet.
My first job then, is to file off all that flash!
