Wow! Excellent build! The best one I've seen of the Skyliner. Fixing those hinges really helps the realism. I built one of the original kits back in the 1960's, and it was a bear to build for a teenager. Seeing yours makes me want to try it again!

Beautiful build of a very tough kit. Those multi piece bodies can be quite a challenge. Very nice clean work.

Great job on a rather difficult kit. I love the pastel blue and white. I have one somewhere in the stash molded in that nasty red plastic. One of these days I may get to it. Still, yours looks great.

Would someone be willing to email me these pics? All I see are red x's. PM me if you can help.

Very intuitive to use masking tape for the insulation under the hood...I assume it's masking tape?

I agree, a spectacular build of the most proportionate Skyliner of the three years.

Super nice build. How about scratch building the fitted luggage for the container in the trunk.? :D

Sometimes I think you guys have die-cast but then I realise that they are models. Good job

You've encouraged me to take a stab at this kit. I love the car, but wondered if the kit would build up nice. You NAILED IT!......especially that wacky rear hatch/hinge arrangement. NICE.

Definitely a beauty!!

I have several of these to play with, including 2 Original issues to restore!
My first was a 74/5 Yellow issue. Can't believe all the complaints I see about this kit
after building that first one Way back!! I was 13-14 at the time!!
(then I also have built several of the 1962 tool Revell 57 Chevy's ,& the other Tri-5's
from that tooling with NO problems!)

I'm restoring the first built (I only painted the white on the body, and some trim[BMF did
not exist then anyway!])
My second all I did was repaint the white, and when Rev first offered the "Skip's" issue,
I started a Major build. That one will have Continental spare & opening Doors too!!

I want the US SSP reissue to go with my RoG 50th Anniversary issue!!!!
Gald they put the Stock Hubcaps back in the box!!

Where did you get the center emblems for them??
I would love to add those to 1 or 2 of My Skyliners. (or any opf my other 59 FoMoCo's!!)
