Slapped this one together in a matter of three weeks. I started with the Revell Custom Lowrider kit. I stretched it 30 scale inches and then converted it to a hearse

 

This was a fun, low detail build just because it was October and I wanted to do something for Halloween.

And here's what's under all that paint and chrome:

Very cool! What primer did you use to help hide the ghosting lines?

I use Testors Laquer primer in grey. It can be built up to fill in some of the imperfections. I like it alot!

LOW detail???

 

Ron, you don't do low-detail.

 

That looks fantastic. That's one if it were offered in resin would probably be a very good seller. I'm seriously considering giving this a try myself.

 

I can see a light blue coach on Federal Hill now....

Thanks Charlie but, there are no plug wires in this, no driveshaft and the interior is empty behind the front seat. It's kind of a semi-curbside. It looks good enough for the shelf though!

Thanks!!! The Vinyl top was made using the Testors 2 part system. I then painted it with Tamiya TS-15 Blue
