It's a box art build. I've been working on this one off and on for a few years and decided to get on it and finish it. It will be close to the orginal art except the wheels which I changed to chrome reversed. I always thought they would look better than the moons on steelies.

I love the "Jetsons" interior in this kit

I mixed up Testors Kandy Scarlet and Metalflake purple

Thanks, I haven't installed the pipes yet. This was just a quick mock up to see how it all looks.

Absolutely love it, Ron!

This has always been my favorite kit and I always loved that image on the side of the box.

To see it as an actual built kit is too cool! You nailed the color, too!

Can't wait to see it 100% finished.

another of my favorite models, and you're doing a great job with it. i wish there were more of the optional parts present in the numerous reissues but it seems like they welded off another section of sprue every time they reissued it. the Y-block in this and the '57 Fairlane 500 kit are nearly as nice as the recent Revell version. again; excellent work!

Nice, I'm with you on the old box art look and you nailed it even better with the chrome wheels.  Can't wait for some more pictures at different angles.  :wub:
