This is a build for an online "Tri-Five" contest on another forum..3 month dead line.

I decided to build the '56 Nomad..I like Turtles Wagons.

Made the bubble skirts and visor..added Lakers with shrouds..opened rear window.

Shortened the front bumper apron..scribed scribed scribed the trim and doors.

Cut pin head on turn signal lense black wash grill...filled hood..amber turn signals.

Mimicked the hooded front head lites on the back with styrene.Built up the lower

rear tail lites with clear acrylic to form a dome like the top lense then painted it clear

red.

Thanks y'all..

I lowered the 56 tail lites to the top of the rear emblems(small bowtie and chevron).

This was done to avoid a step up in the body work. A real mild peak was added to the

tops of the rear fenders to mimic the front fenders.Didn't want to give them a full on

frenched look..but a subtle custom touch.

hummm I love this project, I like the idea of ​​cap and taillights.

 

for the grid, I had to open sand, it gives a more realistic side (look my 56 nomad)

I did see your '56 Nomad and the Phantom '56 El Camino...very creative work.

The grill work with the fishing line and half round styrene is stunning.

I will take your advice and thin the grill ....wish me luck.

Looks great.  The tail lights are real nice and the grill opened up makes a huge difference.
