  1. It sounds like it's the MPC kit. Thanks to all! Gee, I wonder why I can't remember all of that? I was 11!!!
  2. Thanks. It's the right body style, but I wonder if it's molded in Petty blue? I obviously did not bother to use the red sides. Were those decals, I wonder?
  3. The other day I was going through my "built before becoming a teenager" stash and ran across a Richard Petty Charger, molded in Petty blue and black. It looks like I didn't bother to paint it, just slapped it together and put the decals on. I thought it was a Johan, but now I'm thinking MPC. Anyone have a recollection of this kit? And who made it? Thanks John
  4. Does anyone have a pdf of the instructions for the old "Red Alert" Chevelle? I want to see how many parts I'm missing on my original one before I tear it down for a rebuild. Thanks! John
  5. I love old wagons, but the Continental add on is not the best. I'd vote for a Ranchero!
  6. I've got another '57 Nomad that has Torq Thursts. I really like the look, but just wanted to keep this one as stock as possible.

    1957 Chevrolet Bel Air

    Thanks, all! I don't like the way the wheels turned out, and I could change them if I really wanted to. The antenna is guitar string, which looks better than the chrome part they had. I also did gold chrome foil on the emblems.
  8. I really don't like the wheels, either. And there's no way to paint the trim rings easily.
  9. Here's my finished '57 Bel Air. This is the Pro Shop kit with the PE parts. They were very nicely done.
  10. I'm close enough to done to move it over to Under Glass. The Photo-etched parts were great on this kit.
  11. Quick update. I got the hoses installed. This kit comes with some PE pieces. I really like the detail it adds to the grille.
  12. You're right, the motor mounts were a bear. I didn't pin them, but that would have been a good idea.
  13. While the kit feels good and solid, my first issue was with the ride height. I just couldn't get the frame to snuggle in where it is supposed to in front. With glue and clamps I finally got it down.
  14. I'd be interested in knowing who has built the AMT '57 Chevy Pro Shop kit. What started out as a great kit now has fitment issues.
