These are pictures of a 1957 Chevy Custom Car. It is based on the AMT/Ertl Boyd Coddington American Hot Rods release. I liked their look so I used the custom parts from the kit and also pancaked the hood and hinged it from the front. It is painted with Varsity White primer, Krylon Gold lacquer, Black Gold candy red lacquer and topped off with Tamiya clear lacquer. The interior is a flat white, and is detailed with Bare Metal foil and paint. I installed the Revell parts pack chrome 283 engine, topped with an aluminum air cleaner from the old Ala Kart kit. I used Pegasus disk brakes and the big and little mag wheels from the Pro Modeler 1959 Corvette kit.

This is a picture of my 1957 Chevy "stealth" machine. I started with a 1957 Chevy 150 resin kit from Time Machine Resin and used an AMT/Ertl plastic kit as a donor. The car features a "down in front" stance with wheels and tires from the Revell 1957 Chevy Bel Air snap kit. The Goodyear tire decals are from a NASCAR race car kit. The engine is an LS series small block with the 6-speed from the 35th anniversary Camaro. I painted the body, trim and wheels with Rustoleum Black Night Metallic spray paint for the "stealth" look. The clear coat is airbrushed Future. The chassis is "stealth" painted with Krylon Black Textured Shimmer spray paint. The interior is from the Time Machine resin kit with Ken's Fuzzy Fur carpet and is paint detailed.

My build of AMT's '60s vintage, Trophy Series '57 with Lancer caps from a 1960 AMT 3 in 1 annual kit. Love this old kit in spite of its flaws and inaccuracies!

Here it is with some Photoshop work to correct some of the inaccuracies and add some Sam Hollingsworth Nomad-style flames and panel outlines....

Heres a couple of quick pics of what I have on display. Many more are waiting to be finished. Mix of plastic & die-cast.

Blue coupe is latest from couple of years ago, red sedan is earliest from 25 + years ago ! Sadly my original Pepper Shaker build was destroyed when moving house years back. A Pepper Shaker 2 is on the build list :)
Finishing my 1;1 57 meant kits went on back burner for a while.

So many absolutely awesome '57s here !!
I'm especially in love with the builds from Steve L , Daddy Fink , Darbo and John Goschke !

A friend of mine gifted me with the Revell Black Widow - 210 Business Coupe kit a few years ago , and I've been thinking of building a 50s / 60s Kustom or Lowrider out of it ...
