I made a few changes to the '57 Ranchero.

I re-did the side moulding and the rear window and pickup bed mouldings to represent the Ranchero Custom Model.

 

Also, I added the upper mouldings and I am going to add the gold anodized insert. Now, it's time for paint.

Someone forward this to Revell, and see if they are paying attention...they would make a ton of money offering a Ranchero made from the new tooling!!!
