I've posted this in someone else's thread but I'm big-headed enough to want to show it on its own.
Finished last year, box stock except for some wire and Satco tyres. Paint is Zero base with Tamiya clear and scripts were all done with the "Foil Before Paint" method. Please excuse the dust in the engine bay.

The last thing I'd expect to see from a New Zealander living in Switzerland is an Arkansas Razorbacks license plate!  :lol:

Love it!

I just started one here recently, and chose the same basic color, I think GM called it "Corona Cream" or something like that.

Now I'm inspired to complete mine....

Thanks so much for your comments, approval on this forum means a lot to me.

Lee, there is no PE here, scripts and badges are all done with BMF before paint.
Harry, the plates are from a set of photographed items bought several years ago and, to be honest, I didn't know till now what RZRBK stood for! Other examples I've used from the set are RUGRUV and EZ2PLEZ.
Mike, yes Corona Cream was what I was aiming for and I think I'm not way off. The interior should represent "Fawn Beige" (which was your only choice for a Corona Cream BelAir in 62) but I may have been less successful there. I'll try and put an interior shotup today.
