Hi This is my take on a 55 nomad. Pretty much box stock apart from the ride hight. Colours are metalic silver under candy red and halfords(auto store) clear. Any and all comments welcome.

nice work it looks real good, i built one of these recently and the foil work was a royal pain in the bottom ! yours looks great. I had a nightmare with mine i took about 3 days on the foil then i tried a new clearcoat out and it ruined the paint !

Foil was a real pain, looks ok in pics no the best took hours and a lot trail and error.
Thank you all for the kind words.

Let me be the first to say, I have never built one of these.  :lol:  It looks challenging I love your color choice, or colour choice as you say in the UK. Nice looking model!

Looks great! B)

I still believe the 55 is the best looking year for the Nomad! :)
