    Bough this cheap on a local add. Had some issues as sanded away detail and trim here and there
    and one wheelarch on the rear was a complete mess,including the obligatory wrecked windsheild frame.
    The color is meant to look like Dublin Green,popular among many GM models. I thought it look better
    with the green top and green boot over white,as the interior are. The boot that follow the car did not
    fit at all,so i used one from the AMT 62 Impala (new tool) parts car. I also used the steeringwheel from
    this kit with the Buick colum,the Modelhaus wheel was way to thick imo. I will touch up some painting
    in the engine compartment and try add clear glass on the top and i calling it done. Replacement
    parts are the hood and ornament.
    Here are some pictures,thanks for looking.

    Did this one a while back. Body,glass,partial tub,and partial firewall and inner fenders is Johan.
    Did add some trim for vinyl roof and used alu tube for exhaust,the kit parts was to small.
    Chassis,drivetrain,most of the interior sides,seats,console,dash etc are Revell.
    Used MCG photo-etch set for emblems and grills,also some interior parts.
    Big thanks to fiatboy helping out with the wheels and also used the exhaust.
    It has a 71 color scheme,i did not realize until i was close to done. All w30 was
    put together in Lansing,i read some say 10 or 12 of these got the red inner fenders
    but i have not got it confirmed so i did not take the chance,also it was mostly for fun.
    Here are some pictures,thanks for looking.

    Fantastic work! The 66 looks great as well,the 67 is imo a much better looking car.

    Nice transformation.

    Love it,all those personal touches makes it really pop. 
  11. om617 added a post in a topic 1966 Chrysler 300. A Few New Photos.   

    Stunning! This looks like a 1:1 in a showroom. Must have missed out on this thread. 
    Btw all the pictures look fine on my screen.

    Unusual subject,you did a nice job on it. 
  13. om617 added a post in a topic Why are 1/43 Scale Models so Pricey   

    The unusual subjects and limited production i would assume add a lot. Some 1:43 resins (Finished models) are so nice they
    sometimes put bigger scale models to shame. Example the brand NEO. This said the NEO models are rarely over $100. 
  14. om617 added a post in a topic Pretty much done with resin.   

    Does this person got a website? I would like to know so i can avoid it.

    Hi Greg. 
    If it`s just thin flash like it looks to be it`s no problem,those tiny parts are very deicate. 
    Great job on the Bonneville,the casting looks really good,thin and crisp detail. 
    Have you tried cast uptops? I could see a big market on uptops,both for those
    who restore annuals and those into the later Cutlass/Chevelle etc.  
     
    How do i order the mirrors btw?
