One of my first 1100 discoveries on the internet was Crossway Models in England. They have
an excellent reputation for building white metal models of most versions of the ADO-16.
When I saw some pictures of their models, I emailed them and asked if they could build a replica
of my America. I soon received an email telling me that although they'd never made an america before, they thought
they could if I sent some pictures.
So, I took some interior and exterior photos and included an actual paint sample for them to work
with . . .
Literally a couple years and many emails later, I started to receive some progress photos.
It seems for some reason they had problems with the paint and wound up repainting the body several times. They had to
build a custom interior, because the 1970 America used a 1300GT style steering wheel and MG Midget style headrests.
Following the body and interior shot, I received an email asking me to choose a rear bumper from the attached picture.
After choosing a bumper, another email asked me to choose what style side moulding I'd like to have, and how I thought they
should do the logo badges for the grill and trunk. The car was finally complete and arrived a few weeks later.
I'm extremely happy with the results and the paint is a perfect color match to my car!
