Beautiful job on the Belvedere Bruce!!  Very nice color combo & I personally like the WW tires...adds a touch of class.

Nice looking '64! I agree, Lindberg did a good job on this one, it was nice to build. Here's my version:

Real sharp build Bruce.  That is some exceptional foil work.

Very nice, clean build. Good paint and foil work! The whitewalls look good. They were still around in 1964.

Great looking Plymouth! One of my favorite cars and kits.

As far as the wide whites, the look is a matter of opinion but if you want to make it look like it would have on the street in 1964 it has to be narrow whites. Narrow whites hit the streets with the new '62 cars and by '64 nobody used the wide ones. Tires didn't last very long back then and by about halfway through '62 you seldom saw wide ones. Of course, wide whites could be had dirt cheap so many of them got re-capped into cheater slicks!

I can remember a lot of "old geezers" (as we called them, I'm one now! :rolleyes: ) would come into the station with their fairly new car and buy wide whites. Gave us some nice sets of used to resell!

 

The Plymouth looks great!!! B)

Looks great. My dad ran wide whites on his '63 Olds for as long as he could get them...well into the '60s.
