This colorful book captures some of the most beautiful and rare scale models of American Ford, Edsel, Lincoln, and Mercury cars and light trucks from the classic 1930-69 period. During the last thirty years, a small number of builders have devoted themselves to making, by hand, model cars in scale. Often limited to only a few hundred pieces, these unusual and expensive models have flawless finishing and astounding detail. For the first time ever in one source, the author has assembled hundreds of high-resolution color photographs from his and others' private collections, and from the builders themselves. Read about the history of these Ford replicas, the cars they are modelled upon, and learn where you can get them. This book is a must read for people who enjoy scale models and Ford Motor Company cars.

About the author (2006)

Randall Olson grew up in the small city of Winnipeg, Manitoba in the center of the North American continent. He has vivid memories of cruising across the vast flatlands of his childhood in the Ford, General Motors, and Chrysler land yachts of the 1950s. A love for these automobiles became a part of his life, as did his enjoyment of photography and scale model motorcars. Randall has combined these loves in Ford in Miniature. The author lives in Vancouver, B.C., Canada with his wife and twin teenage sons. He is a business consultant, skilled miniaturist and diorama builder and is working on his next book in this series.
