The interior was sprayed with "Make it Suede" spray paint from any craft store. It does run hot and has a nice maple syrup smell. Anyway it comes in a few shades and is about $7.99 for a krylon size spray can.

Those cars had truckload of style. A real American classic. You capture the elegance perfectly. Great job!

Thanks for the kind words. The color was a custom mix. started with humbrol platinum bronze (i think) mixed with testors champagne. diluted with 50% thinner and airbrushed / gloss coated.

I agree. You seem to have built some very nice models, but it's hard to see all your work with such small pictures. Is there a way to make them bigger? Maybe one of our members or a moderator could help...
Also,any chance we could see some engines, chassis and interiors?

I was lucky to get the pictures to post at all. I tried to use the upload program from this site and it just didnt work. I had to post them to flickr and then copy and paste. I tried to copy and paste to my post from my hard drive and that didnt work either. I'll try to work it out somehow.

Thanks for the kind words

There we go! I'm glad you got the picture size issue sorted out.

Thanks for the Make It Suede tip, Jim. That interior looks comfy.
