1957 Black Widow while still at SEDCO

Some facts: I used Photo Etch for the four Chevrolet Scripts, and the V on the hood and trunk. It's only the 5th time I've ever used PE parts, and two of those times were pedals-which I simply super glued over the kit pedals. Nothing I've ever done with PE that was this integral to the car before.
Scratchbuilt side boldster for seat, made up of four parts. Scratchbuild headlight covers/blockoffs as the ones Revell provided are nice but not accurate in any way, shape or form. Scratchbuilt exhaust pipes.
Plastic Performance Products tires and wheels, in the proper for racing 6-lug pattern.
Revell only included one taillight so I left them both off, I am hoping to get a copy from one of my friends who has built a bunch of these kits already. I also somehow managed to lose the right side door handle some time between finishing the model on April 30th and taking the pictures on May 2nd.
I took the photos outside because it's a hassle to break out the photo set up and I won't do it unless I have a lot to shoot!
Well, enjoy the pictures..
The decal for the large main gauge was blown away by my high powered fan...

The two tone paint is flawless as well as your BMF! It's nice to see these with no numbers on 'em, as that's how Chevrolet would've delivered 'em anyway!

My great uncle had one sitting in his yard for years in two tone blue I'd like to replicate some day!
