I recently picked up the new Moebius '55 Chrysler 300 and it is a great kit!I decided to paint it like my Grandfather's '56 Chrysler New Yorker,which was painted coral pink with a black roof.IT was not easy to mix the paint!The first batch came out like Barbie pink,so i had to add dark red and a little black to achieve the coral color i was after. Here it is after the first coat! Posted Image

What nice detailing of the engine! I've never built or had a kit with a road draft tube or any dipsticks!
