Ford in Miniature
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.
