After finishing my 1940 Ford SD, I thought I could build one more kit in 2012.

Like I have a factory stock 1951 Chevy alredy built, I decided to build one as a 1950's hotrod. Started on the 20th painting the body, and finished today. It's far from perfect, after all, it's just a three day build, and I never have the same care on building a modiffied car than I have building something factory stock, but I think that in general it turned out ok.

 

The paint is Tamiya Metallic Green over Tamiya Gun Metal.

 

Thanks for looking!!!

Great job Tulio.  I just did one stock but it took a lot longer than 3 days :lol: .  Love the paint and wide whites.  That 6-banger looks good too.

Tulio...I love this thing!  The stance, the colors, and your choice of engine and modifications are just right.   As always, very clean work...even if you were in a hurrry B)

So...you wanted to build it fast in case the Earth-consuming fireball did come? :lol:

 

It still looks better than anything that takes me a year to do.

That's excellent build.....In Three Days?! I can't get the engine finished in three days and you built whole car and it looks awesome. The paint and detail is incredible, like the stance too. Good work.
