Great looking Plymouth! I agree it's nice to see one that's not red. The foil work must have kept you busy! Good job on it and the whole car!

Rich, that came out beautifully. I have to say, in white, it looks really good.

Thank you so very much to everyone for your kind and encouraging words..

 

I honestly didn't think that it would look as good in white as it does.  I'm toying with the thought of trying to take out and fix the height of the radiator so that the hood will close properly, but I'm not looking forward to disassembling things at this point.  

 

My next build just arrived from Model Roundup today.  A '58 Edsel with the continental kit.  Another mild Custom coming up I think.  <_<

Fantastic build Rich.  Like your other 58 builds, she's a real head turner.  Can't wait to follow the progress of your Edsel.

Wonderful job, it looks great. I've got one of these on the bench right now and appreciate the heads-up on the locating holes and such.

Thanks again so very much for all your kind and encouraging comments everyone.  I really appreciate it, and please know that your words keep me on the right track in making my builds as neat and clean as I can. 

 

Grant, I will try to take a group picture of the 4 '58's I've built so far, and will post it as a separate thread subject.

 

As a side note, I stated earlier that my next build will be a '58 Edsel.  Well that may be put on hold temporarily as today I received a 1/24 scale "57 Ford Courier Sedan Delivery Diecast (Thanks to my wife's shopping trip to T.J. Max - - - $8.00 in the toy clearance section...!!!).  Another friend that I went to High School with wants me to make a model of his first car, which was a '57 Ford wagon.  So that will come before the Edsel...  after all... what are friends for right..??

 

Thanks again to everyone for looking in on my builds.
