Built this for a build-off on another forum.

This is a great kit, I want to get another one and build it up with the 6 banger!

I had a tough time with the tamyia gold paint, next time I go gold I might try the testors gold.

I like it, how did you achieve the finish on the mags...

That is tight! I'll echo TxRat and ask about the wheels. They look great in particular.



Well done indeed.

Looks good. The last picture shows the paint and decals nicely.

thanks!

those are resins from comp resins. real nice wheels.

cleaned up, spray bombed with testors mag metalizer, with some black wash for the centers and silver for the lugs.

I was a little disappointed with the front skinnies, but I LOVE the pie cuts on the back.

I had a lot of fun with this one.

Cool '37 Chevy gasser. You definitely captured the look of a 1960's 37' Chevy gasser.

Nice build on this kit. A really purposeful gasser. I agree that the wheels contribute a lot to the effect, as well as the 4-barrel on the blower combined with the various metal finishes in the engine compartment.

I've used Competition Resin wheels on several builds and have always been happy with them. They have very crisp detailing and they look especially good when, as you did, finished in Metallizer Buffable Magnesium or Buffable Steel. Also very effective, approximating the dull gold color of some mags, is the Testors Acryl Jet Exhaust (in the bottle) which I like a lot.

I'm just starting this kit but I'm lowering it all around and will build it as a Bonneville car.

Thanx again for sharing this tasty build.
