This was another of my fast builds, as I started her on last Sunday, and finished on Friday. The AMT kit is based on the original dealer promo, so there are not many parts to worry about, and that is the way I like things. I really like the way AMT used to do models back in the '60s and give them more value than the new tooling kits.

I originally wanted this Galaxie to be Acapulco Blue, but I copyed the wrong code from the color catalog, and ended having Viking Blue mixed. I noticed there was something wrong with the color just after I painted the body, but no way I was going to strip the body, specially when the paint resulted good!!! So, Viking Blue she is!!

 

Well, here she is, thanks for looking!!

Man that is just gorgeous.  Your paint job is perfect and the trim paint for the interior is equally impressive.  Amazing build of a difficult model.  Very well done!  Don

Beautiful Galaxie Túlio, the paint does look way too good to strip! Are you gonna do another one sometime in Acapulco Blue?

That's beautiful! A great example of what excellent results can be had from even the oldest kits. Such lovely paintwork, it really sets of the chrome.
