'51 Chevy mild custom, finished.

Subtle lip built around grille shell. Corvette-type grille from parts box. Lowered with posable steering. BOB DUDDEK lakes pipes with the ends drilled open and the caps mounted in the open position.
Stock rear bumper. Smooth front bumper from a Revell '54 sedan delivery kit. Frenched tailights are simply BMF in the indentations for the stock tailights and Tamiya clear red.
These pipes from BOB DUDEK are just too cool! Steelies have chromed spiders from The Modelhaus and Bare Metal Foil trim rings, which, in my opinion, is the only way to make trim rings IN SCALE.
'59 Vette engine with all the chrome dulled down to make it aluminum. Lots of plumbing added. Reps & Mins predrilled distributor. Battery from Revell '56 chevy kit.
I spent alot of time on the interior,,,,,,,and then put it in a closed car!!!! DUH!
Ready to drive to Lloyd Woddington's shop where the '49 Merc MAMA logo car is being started.

Love the open lakes, thats the kind of detail that really sets this one apart from the others.
The interior, what I can see of it, looks great, also!

Very nice....I love the added details on the wheels

How do you managed to get such a fine detail with the BMF ring inside those steelies, with not enven a scrath on them? That is a really tight spot to handle the "exacto" kinfe... I really admire your patience...
Congratulations man, you did an awesome job as aussual...
