Here is Arii's 1/32 scale kit of the 1964 Prince Gloria Super 6.  Paint is Duplicolor Black Sand Pearl.  Interior has custom upholstery decals made by me.  These kits have no chrome, so all shiny stuff is painted with Alclad Chrome, Polished Aluminum, or Bare Metal Foil.  The Arii series of 1/32 kits are a little toy-ish - the glass is usually really, well, crummy - I had to sand and polish the clear plastic on this one.  Fit is a little annoying too, but, it turns out cool...

A fun, quick little model!  I had fun researching the Japanese plates, too, and I think I got one that is accurate for a car in 1964.

Don't see 4dr Convertibles that often!!

 

I like this one. I watch all 1/32 scale kits listed on that auction site all the time.

but this series goes so high!!

Erik, thats awesome. I've been buying up some 1/32 kits lately on ebay. What is your technique for the worn undercarriage? It looks very nice compared to plain black. Nice job!

Thanks for the comments

The undercarriage is done in flat black and silver rub and buff.  I then did a brownish (either Sepia or Mud, I can't remember) wash around the frame in the low spots.  Driveline components are mix of Alclad and MM metalizers with light black and brown washes.  The chassis on these kits are pretty bare bones - this one is actually pretty detailed and has five separate parts (rear end, shocks, front end, and exhaust).

Super nice Erik. It appears to be a really nicely proportion 1/32. Your photos and quality of build defies it's size.
