It's a 1948 Chevrolet Aerosedan, Kit #98011 made by Galaxy Ltd.  This kit is no longer in production and Galaxy has sold out.  These are available on EBay once in a while but it seems that those of us who have some are not selling them very often so they are somewhat hard to find.  This build is one of the best I have seen.  It is a great kit to build.

Awesome!  That has to be the nicest one I have seen built.  What color is that?

 

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for those kind words friend, yes those kits are hard to find.  I had this kit for awhile and decided to build a stocker instead of my normal way out pro street stuff.

That's a knockout!  Very inspirational.  Really.  I've had one of these that I won in a raffle ten years ago and never built.  Now, I gotta give it a try.

Very, very nice buildup. I agree that this is probably the nicest OOB example i've  seen.

Great work Terry,

That's just great, spectacular!!!!

Awesome paint, and a super clean job!!!

Being factory stock also helps a lot, as cars are so much more beautiful the way they left the factory.

That Galaxie kit is one of the finest 1/25 scale kits I've seen. You have done a great job there Terry - it looks STUNNING! A perfect colour and flawless finish.

 

I have this in my stash and will probably build it box stock as its too nice to mess with!

 

Am I right in thinking that Galaxie now offer this kit as a panel van kit?
