Hi guys. I just finished my fourth 1950's build in the last two months. This 55 convertible is a Monogram kit, and it builds up nice, although it reminds me of some of the fiddly Revell kits of the 1960's. No major problems, though. I chose the orange color based on a real 55 convert I've seen in local car shows. The orange is Allis-Chalmer orange tractor paint, and the white is Testors gloss white. The interior is too glossy - I just forgot to spray on some flat clear before I mated it to the body. Oh, well! The orange is actually much more "orange" than it looks in the photos.
Here are some photos of it on my dioramas.
I liked doing this build. The 55 Belair is one of my favorite cars. I hope you guys like it!
