Thanks Y'all..

Well I taped up the body for the Dupli-Color Bahama Blue Metalic..sadly the weather isn't cooperating.

The background pix is of a 56 Chevy I found in one of my Rod and Custom magazine.

I also made some laminated knobs in clear blue and white styrene.

I scored some clear blue tubing at a club meeting for .99 cents.

We hold our meetings at Hobby Town here in the Ol' Dominion.

Laminate knobs installed...

Close up of rear panel body work...does two things for me..mimics the front end

and cleans up the sudden stop the side trim has.

Ouch! Hate that...

 

Oddly enough, I painted this kit the same colors back when it first came out...and was also visited by Mr. Murphy in nearly the same fashion.

 

Looks good, though. I really like the taillight treatment.

I can't believe all the details. WOW.  I would have screwed up the grille in 5 minutes. Those blue knobs are the cats you know what.

Looking forward to the finished model.  Good idea for the knobs.  I might try that on some of my builds.
