Well I finally finished up this build which turned out taking longer than originally expected for a Curbside build. While it looks OK, I'm not totally happy with the way it turned out... I guess I'm my own worst critic. It looks good on my shelf so that's all that really matters right? The paint is Duplicolor Night Shadow (a very dark blue metallic). Details are: Frenched headlights, AMT Blueprinter Parts Pack 54 Chevy tooth grille with 17 teeth, chromed reversed front wheels, spotlights, mirrors, Bob Dudek Lake Pipes, modified side trim, the kit skirts, and Bob Dudek recessed taillights. I'm calling the car Midnight Rose (Rose decal on the kit's trunk mounted spare cover. Thanks for looking everyone. Feel free to comment, good or bad.

Very nice! The grille reminds me of the "bucktooth" Buicks of the early 50's. Good work! I looked through your photo album. You've got some great models in there! Amazing interiors in most of them. Nice work!
