    Thank you for posting the photos.. looks like it was a good show. Too bad that you didn't get more shots of the '58 Ford Country Squire wagon.. an unuaual car that you just don't see anymore.

    Love those '59's!!!!!!!!! I did an El Camino a few years ago in the stock Crown Sapphire and SNowcrest White colour scheme - bare metal foiled it and it looked good! I used real 1:1 auto paints - laquer based primer and acrylic enamel colour coats. That model mat a sad end in a moment of frustration (sighs ) - I have been tempted to do another one the same and may do so one day once I get my toy room set up this year. I prefer the stock look myself but I am sure seeing a lot of talent on these pages regardless of whether the kit is done stock or what ever. Your El Camino should look sweet... keep up the good work.

    If accuracy is important, then the El Camino will not work unless you use the windshield pillars from a hardtop or convertible. In '59/60. the sedans, wagons, sedan deliverys used a different windhsield than the hardtops and convertibles. The hardtop/convertible windshields are lower in profile than the sedan/wagon/etc. windshields and the El Camino rear glass is different than the El Camino. I seem to recall also that the rear glass on the four door hardtop curled around the sides more than the El Camino glass did. Hope this helps. Gary
