When my wife returned from Chicago she came bearing gifts! My beloved brother in law sent this kit Revell kit he bought at a car museum. I don't normally do factory stock cars and '57 Chevys arent my thing, but I gave it a whirl.

 

This is the two in one with the large wheels and disc brakes molded to the axles. I decided a 50's turquoise would look good.

MM Enamel Gloss White and Turquoise airbrushed over white primer. The interior is MM Turquoise with MM Graphite airbrushed on the patterned areas.

Looking good. Classic colors on a '57. If I had a 1:1 I'd want mine to look like that!
