Revell 59 Impala convertible in gloss red and white.  Came out pretty good.

 

My only issues were with the wheel fit and the interior.  The front looks lowered.  Kinda like a low rider, but I built it stock and the way the directions say.  As for the interior, the directions weren't clear on how to set up the door panels, so I took a guess that came up looking alright.

I'm working on one of these right now, stalled as I anticipate foiling  :unsure: .  Yours looks great!  What kind of problem did you have with fitting the interior?

Doesn't really show how the door frames attatch to the floor board.  So I glued the dash to the frames first and then put them in.
