Evening, gents and ladies,
I just started the Revell 1957 Convertible kit, given to me for Father's Day by my son and wife. I've read with interest the comments regarding some of the inaccuracies of this kit, most notably, the beltline contour and the recommended reworking. I've tackled that issue, even replacing the doortop stainless with a more appropriately scaled width. My question has to do with the quarter side trim. The top piece of stainless appears very light. Has anybody completed one of these yet? If so, your perceptions on the finished piece? I've included images of my work thus far and the aforementioned quarter panel. I'm considering an AMT Hardtop (with Photoetched insert) as a donor for correcting the issue if necessary.
