"It's all about what I would drive in the real world." Paul Longcrier of Olympia, Washington, told us the Aqua '53 Ford was the first scale model he'd built after a 40-year hiatus. Once he had the '53 completed, Paul moved onto his favorite series of Ford: the '48-52 F-1. In closing, Paul mentioned he was a big fan of the "Trucks In Miniature" column that used to run in Custom Classic Trucks.
