At our club meeting last night a member brought in a "test shot" of Galaxie's Chevy Coupe. The Sedan and Sedan Delivery have been out for quite awhile and just maybe the Coupe will be on the shelves this fall, we'll see?

I remember this one, the test shot was painted red and looked beuatiful!!

 

It has been posted earlier last year or so, it is a modified reissue from Galaxie, so it's a 1948 just like their counterparts (i think you could build 1947 and 1948) 

 

Can't wat to see the production model of thid one!!

 

Here's the picture of the completed test shot in 2012..

Wow, hope they release the coupe soon. It would make a nice addition to the other 2 kits.

This one just happened to be sitting there when I left the hospital recently. I was just thinking then that it sure would be a sweet subject for a new model building project.

I didn't know Galaxie was working on this body style - AWESOME!

Mmmm.....now I can build one each from each year.

 

Just gotta figure out which ones I want to do what which way.

 

So, they're thinking a fall release date?

Still hoping for a Convertible, but Can work with the New hardtop to get one

At least it will be easier than trying it on the Fleetline!!

I hope you guys like the pics. Learning how to use the camera, so sorry about the dark pics. Parts molded in black. I know the kit will be in the usual off white. Should be out in the fall.

I do like what I seeing. This goes on the "get" list, absolutely without question.

 

I'll have all three- and I can do one each 1946-47-48 car. Works for me.

What's the deal on the wood applique shown on the Fleetline in post 63? Is that aftermarket, or included in a release of this kit I don't know about?

 

Sorry if this has already been asked and answered.
