What if the '58 Edsel's had fins like most of their contemporaries?

Fins built up from styrene sheet.
Painted with Vallejo Acrylics.
Decals from Revell '69 Corvette.

OUTSTANDING Fred, superb work there.  :thumbsup:

I never thought an Edsel could be anything but pretty boring, not any more!

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Second that. I did not expect that it was possible to pimp the already bombastic Edsel...  :thumbsup:

Even though I somewhat expected an Edsel/AMC Pacer kit bash behind the title.  ;)
