I finally finished an all steel 1908 Model T kit that I received for my birthday in September. The kit is made by Rare Earth Models and comes in two laser-etched panels with punch-out parts. It is ingeniously designed and has a high level of detail. I found it fun to build, but some Amazon reviewers thought it was too difficult.
I saw this last month up at Hobby Lobby thought it was kinda neat.
I have one, given to me for my birthday a year ago. So far I have just admired it in its packet. I will build it soon though.
They sell these new 1908 Model T's at the Piquette plant.
How many times did you cut your fingers?
Is the kit assembled with solder? If not how?
Nice looking model.
Each of the pieces has small tabs that go into small slots, then you bend the tabs over. The only pieces that didn't work out so well were the windshield supports. I used piano wire for those and some CA+ glue, along with activator to speed up the process.
Don't have any pics but I did a couple of brass T kits in N scale for a train layout. Never again.
I have one of those sitting on my desk that I built. It was fun. Definitely needed tweezers and fine needle nose pliers. I agree that the windshield supports are not right.
I was give a kit for.Christmas a few years ago, right before moving. been sitting ever since. the kit not me, the wife has the world's longest honey due list for me.
