Here's an older build of a Modelhaus resin kit...before AMT re-issued the 62. Classic white with red upholstery.

Very nice!  

 

* I'm not big on leaving the kit bumpers with the molded-in year ~ I prefer to shave the numbers off and slap a license plate decal over them on my builds.  And, I think they look toy-like if something isn't done with them, like often happens. 

 

But I really like the way you dealt with them on this build!  Makes them look like actual accessory plates, not the toy-ish appearance of being left all chrome.   Kudos ~ great idea!

That looks to be as nice a kit as the AMT one but then coming from the Modelhaus, one would expect no less. Those cars do look so good in that colour combination.. nice build and thank you for sharing.
