This one, I really like!!! Amt's 1955 Chev Cameo done in Duplicolor Chevy Orange. It has Pegasus Volante 23" and parts bin intake with filters. What ya think? Mirrors or no Mirrors.

Ps. I know I forgot to sand off the TM stamp on the fuel tank, but bring on the critics :unsure:

Looks good Chris, tough call with the mirrors mate, I'm not sure myself, maybe a 'old school' type ;)

That looks really nice in orange. Good job. I love that kit too.  I've built two of them so far, and I have many of them in my inventory.  Funny thing, I've never built one stock like yours. I'll have to do one someday!

I have this kit, and always wondered if the guys at AMT forgot a floor pan for the cab.

The '57 truck is the same thing.

The model looks great, but they could had included a part to hide the interior tub from the underside, so it would look more realistic.

Looks great! With the large wheels and low pro tires it maybe could have been a tick lower... but that about it.

Hi Chris,

No critiques from me, I think it looks terrific. The color and wheels look sharp!

 

Cheers,

Albert

since you mentioned the floor... it's easy enough to fix.  Above are photos of the two trucks I built.  I used a very thin piece of Evergreen sheet on the bottom of the interior tub that was cut to match the cab bottom.  Then using more Evergreen, this time a bit thicker, I made the step down areas. I've been told that the step down doesn't go all the way to the back like I did, only in the door area.  I'll do one that way next time.  It would be cool if a resin caster made a corrected interior floor.

^^ Here is a shot of the under cab structure AMT/ERTL chose not to put in the box.

 

I agree with the comments (and have been intending to scratch up something to cover the sides of the interior tub when I build one of the 6 or so kits in my stash), but I think the OP's model looks great considering what AMT/ERTL provided as raw materials.

Are you sure that's the right one? The '55-57 had the battery on the firewall under the hood. That pan appears to have a hole in it for the battery to sit in like a Ford.

Also, isn't that compartment at the back for the spare tire and not a fuel tank? There's a fuel tank behind the seat...
