Franklin Mint 1:43 '61 Lincoln Continental

If I had the means to afford just one full-size collector car, this is what it would be. Until then, I'll just have to make do with a miniature.

This Franklin miniature is nice. All four doors open. But as you can see, they don't always close properly. I tried fiddling with the hinges, but this was the best fit I could accomplish. I don't have any pictures to show you what it looked like before I started working on it, but the body was bent, the windshield frame was damaged, and several trim pieces were missing. I repaired and scratch built those to the best of my ability.
