I must say, it's shaping up rather nicely Nick.

Wow!  Not what I was expecting, "Just another '57 Chevy".   I never will get bored with '57s but, this is not just out of the box, it's out of the ball park and I love it!  :wub:

Now this will be different! A monster '57 Chevy has never entered my sick little mind, I'm gonna enjoy this one Nick!

ive seen one before my dad took the mpc? bronco monster truck chassis and put it under a 56 monogram belair. Thats back when his imagination worked. Now its just stock street or drag with scratch parts. He did use the amt 57 chevy's class of 57 decals on it. but his 57 is stock.

Thanks guys, and Platerpants, mine is one of a kind, I highly doubt anyone could replicate my build exactly, because I'm not even sure where I got half the parts I have used. :blink:

OK Nick, spill it, who makes the killer Nighthawk Black Pearl? I want a bunch of it, that's gonna be a beautiful color when it's all polished out!

As Nick stated, it's a Honda color that was used a few years back. They used it for a while on nearly every Honda and Acura models. Paint code is NH-B92P. Really nice color in the light.


The kit is coming together really nicely. Gotta love something this unique out of a model that has been built by nearly everyone at one time or another. Not easy to do something different on such a popular kit but you've pulled it off.

Looking good Nick. I've done a 4x4 '57 myself. They really look good lifted.

That they do, and yes NH-B92P is the paint code, I forgot to include that.
