Nice model! Great paint. Job well done!

That style of top is called a "Carson Top" they became so popular and copied that they were known in generic terms by (I think) a shortened version of the shop's name who first made them. They were a fixed top which did no longer operated as a convertible top. Like most all great Custom Trends they originated in Southern California.

Steve every since I first saw your work in the pages of SAE I have loved your builds, it truly is an honored to view your work and drool over the beauty that comes from your bench, A friend and I were talking about your work one day and he said "Oh to be a fly on the wall of that work bench" I so agree with him

Whenever I see that Steve has just posted his new finished build in Under Glass, I know it will be out of this world. But still I'm completely blown away every time. This is no exception, fantastic work! I like this style Customs a lot, it looks like it could be factory made, but it's clearly a Custom. Fantastic work.

Your work is always outstanding and always inspiring...as is your attention to detail, right down to the center cover-clips for the windshield surround. And your styling choices and sense of proportion are perfect. Absolutely beautiful.

I´ve been following this build of yours in your FB- page. Your work simply amazes me. We have four local model clubs for kids here in South-Eastern Finland, and were currently having a " Built AMT ´51 Chevy " club project with about 45 to 50 Chevys on our workbenches.

I am leading one of our clubs and building one kit for myself also.

All this means that I am very familiar with all issues related to this kit and I´m doind a very humble bow here while studying your beautiful model.
