Another one of my replica stocks. I had this one as a kid, but did the old firecracker bomb to it and regretted it ever since. When AMT / Model KIng reissued this a couple I brought 5 of them.Nice model of a big land yault.

Great model!  I just got this kit as a gift over the holidays, hope I can make it look that good.  Love the big boats.

Hi Al,

looks realy good in black-silver! Beautiful car.

Just an hour ago, i took mine out of the shelf and took a look...but no motivation to work on it. And now, i see yours....pretty cool! Changig my mind? Who knows...

 

 

What do think about making better pictures with another background of your cars? All of them i've seen yet looking well! I think they work with a neutral background is many times better. Perhaps, you will try it?

Beautiful Imperial! Love your builds! Dominik is right about the pics. I've had much better luck shooting them outdoors in the sunlight.

Al, that looks great. I hate to admit it, but that's the reason I don't have any of my kits from the 60's. The met their death by firecrackers.

The stainless steel canopy against the black looks very nice.

 

Well done.

Thank you guys.

The paint on this one is actually a real deep midnight blue. Even in person, it's hard to tell.
