Hallo everybody,

 

I´d like to share my build of a ´41 Chevy Pickup (Revell, 1:25). I started about two weeks ago.

I have question about the sun visor. What material is it originally, I mean, should I make it glossy or not?

 

Thanks for looking :)

Hello Mike, the sun visor is made of the same metal as the rest of the car. So if you want to paint your car glossy, you may paint the visor glossy too. But it's up to you.

I am very exited to see your project, because I have the same kit and I was going to start with it after my current project. I will follow your progress!

I thought your avi was a mog I have had one of those to build for years, just never got in the mood to build it...IMG_20130114_125942.jpg

may have to break it out and get building....

I just built this '41, one of my favs of the chevy fam next to the '50, I love what you are doing to it and your clean building style can not wait to see your truck done.
