    1960 Chevy Wagon
    A pretty quick build, not quite finished but enough to share here. 
    Jimmy Flintstone resin body, Model railroad paint using salt and water color to get the patina effect.
    Original Craftsman glass, chassis and tub.
    Pegasus wheels
    BMF, scoffed for patina effect.
    I used the original tail light but have ordered the four light bumper from Modelhaus. When it arrives I'll replace this one and detail the interior also.




    Thanks for looking comments welcome.

    You know it'll have to be dull!

    Little salt, some paint, sanding and scraping. It'll get there...

    This resin body has fine pitting all over, so after an attempt to fill and sand it. I have decided on a more weathered finish. 
    Lets see where this goes now...

    Pick this up this weekend, less than $40.  Should fit right in with my other customs.

    The model has been up for sale numerous times. Wouldn't be surprised if it had ghost bids. 
    Resin is a great way to go if you gotta chassis for it.

    One other issue with this body the casting is pretty rough! I have washed it good, primed and then hit it with some black so I can block sand it and see the defects more clearly.
    .
    This is what it looks like after sanding. I think I have my work cutout for me!
