Review and Photos by Alan Mann Alan Mann (Thumbnail)

The Ford Model T was produced by Ford Motor Company from October 1908, to May 1927. It is generally regarded as the first affordable automobile, the car that opened travel to the common middle-class American; some of this was because of Ford’s efficient fabrication, including assembly line production instead of individual hand crafting. The Model T was named the world’s most influential car of the 20th century in an international poll. Its production numbers surpassed any other vehicle and these classics made it onto roads all over the nation. Eventually, many made their way into the shops of hot-rod enthusiasts and became rolling works of art. The Model T was available throughout its production in over fourteen different body styles.


For the Modeler: This review covers the Monogram Black widow kit 85-4324 in 1/24 scale. This is a direct Re-release (Re-Pop) and is the exact same kit that you would get from the original 1960 release and the 2010 release. Revell has rated this as a Skill Level 2 for moderate builders. That is the entry level Skill for a Glue Kit. The copyright on the parts in this kit are 2010. There are 55 parts molded it Black, White, Chrome and Clear with Vinyl tires. In the original 1960 kit there was a motorized or non-motorized version, and as such this body has the moldings inside for the motor. The engine is overly basic with not much detail at all. There is no rear suspension but a decent front suspension. The interior is typical of the Hot Rods of the 50’s. The tires are actually very well detailed and look great.  The decals give you five different versions you can build or you can mix and match for your own design. Overall dimensions are: Length: 5-7/8″, Width: 2-3/4″, Height: 2-1/2″.
