Just finished this one today and I am moving it to this section from the Workbench section. Its a 1959 Buick LeSabre resin kit by Promolite. Its Fawn Metallic basecoat/clearcoat with Matching gold tones inside. It has MV Lenses, Pegasus wheels, Tons of Bare Metal Foil and the mods necessary to get the wheels under it. Other than that its pretty much as it came from Promolite. Thanks for looking!

  • That is really nice looking. You have to like those big old Buicks with all the chrome and fins

That looks beautiful. It inspires me to get my Dad's old 59 Buick model out and rebuild it.

Yet another instance where I drool like Homer, that looks AMAZING! I love that bosy style and the paint looks excellent! Wheels look really nice tucked under it as well.

Thanks for all the comments guys. I wanted the car to have the look of the 1:1 airbagged cars we see at Goodguys and NSRA shows. The big body GM cars are really popular right now for doing a stock ride just airbagged with big inch wheels.

It's a beauty! I'm not a fan of big wheels and thin tires, but those look just right on this Buick. Nice work!
