Topics I've Started

1959 Buick Invicta convertible

One of the other projects ready for paint, is an original AMT '59 Buick convertible. This one is going to eat up a lot of Bare Metal Foil. Fortunately, it's an Invicta, and not an Electra 225, which would need even more foil. I still haven't finalized the color, but leaning towards black with a red interior. That was the scheme of my aunt's '48 Buick Roadmaster convertible.

I'll finally have a model to match my avatar. I'm building this to match the 1:1 version I had over 30 years ago, in the same color scheme. The parting lines, etc., are sanded, and it's about ready for paint. It's an original kit, so painting the three tone black/red/white interior will be a bit tricky with the original tub design. It'll be fun, though, and hope to have it done this spring.
