Mat Irvine: These types of kit were part of a range that had started as the Trophy Series, running alongside the Annual kits produced by the original AMT Corporation. The Trophy Series then spawned a sub-division called Street Rods. This Ford Woody kit reflects that story by using a new illustration, painted by Don Greer, one of the original AMT box artists.
The 96 components (below) are moulded mostly in white, with chrome, clear, and black vinyl for the tyres.
A well produced reissue kit, which includes some neat final touches. These include a set of printed wood panels on the decal sheet and, obligatory for a Woody, a surf board.
AMT: 1941 Ford Custom Woody station wagon
Assembled length: 200 mm (7.9 in)Manufacturer’s ref: AMT 906
SMN note: The nicely finished model (below) has enough added details to create visual interest. The lowered suspension and whitewall tyres help provide the custom hot rod look. All the Woody needs now is a group of surf dudes and dudettes, plus a backdrop. The result would be a fascinating mini-diorama, reflecting beach life in the mid-20th century.
