As the weathers stopped me from spraying this weekend I had a dig around in my to do kits looking for inspiration iand dragged this one out of the pile (it's is the Model King reissue). I hadn't got a clear idea of what direction to take it in but I've always liked the roof line on John D'Agastino's Royal Emperor. Soo.... back to the kit pile looking for a suitable roof - the only thing that I'd got that seemed workable was the roof from the AMT 58 Plymouth Belvedere which has been reversed with the rear pillars built up from sheet plastic. Still a lot of blending in to do but this is how it looks at the moment.

That looks very cool Andy.  Keep going. This is a great Curbside kit to build having no engine.  I did one about 3 years ago and it came out pretty good.  A picture follows (I'm not trying to hijack your thread here).

Already digging it!

I see I'm not the only guy who still has a few sets of SATCO Firestone wide whites laying around.
