    1955 Chevy Coupe

    Build details, I'm old probably won't remember most of them. I saw the latest release of the AMT 55 Chevy, and I just liked the box art. So I got the kit, and started going through my parts boxes. The frame and floor pan are out of the 57 Chevy street machine, used the 4 link a out of that kit. most of the front end and the BB are out of the Foose Caddy and pu truck, The injection is from 3D model specialties. Wheels are from the Foose Coronet, tires are from the Tamiya F 50, cause you gotta have the name on the tires, along with the front seats. The flames are out of one of Revells 55 Belair, but they fell apart on 1 side so you only get to see the left side of the car. heres a couple more pics. Of coarse you have to have Model Car Garage goodies.
  2. yea the foose truck was so unwanted it was going for 100-150 on ebay as far as the caddy, what can I say,hmmm.

    I doubt the rear end sits that high on the stock kit, but I like a little rake, and yes it is Testors Inca Gold lacquer. Thank you all for your comments.
  4. I think they are an excellent kit for parts. Peppershaker, I'm using the back half of the AMT 57 Chevy street machine under the caddy. That's another great kit for parts (hint hint Round 2.
  5. ok so I'm 66, and now this. Pisses me off. No one asked me if this was ok. Now i have to get those Ford models stocked up, and maybe even build one.

    The green is Tamiya Pearl Green Lacquer TS-60, the wood is Light Sand, TS-46. Best BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH paint I've ever used, and some great colors. The wood inlay is a Bic marker, honey brown. here's a pic of the interior, most of which came from Revell's 37 Ford convertible.
