As I finish my Lakes Deuce 5-window I’ve started this little side project – an AMT ’51 Chevy Hardtop done as an early 60’s street rod. Nosed, decked and shaved, with frenched headlights and the stock grill bar, a Revell ’49 Merc rear bumper at the front, stock rear bumper, rear wheel wells cut open and kit rake (raised shackles at the rear and dropped spindles at the front). The tires are Modelhaus, pinners at the front and M&H whitewall slicks at the rear. The wheels are kit fronts and Modelhaus rears. They will get Modelhaus chrome spyders. The taillights will be stock units, power will be a Revell Parts Pac small block Chevy V8 with dual quads. Paint is Duplicolor Gunmetal metallic and Testors Revving Red metallic.
Nothing very elaborate but a subject I don’t do all that often (it’s got fenders!). The style, too, is one I haven’t seen done that often among contemporary car modelers. Hopefully it’ll come out OK…
Thanx for lookin’,
