Everything depends on the look you are going for. I would try to find a set of Factory Stock wheel covers, or period wire or mags. After I built my '67 Lincoln sedan, there was a nice set of wire wheels, with the Lincoln crest in the center cap, which is going to go on one of my future Lincoln projects. Remember, no matter what anyone else says, it's your model, and it has to look good to you. The rest of us is gravy.
Saturday night, I started work on my uncle's promos, and surprisingly, they all cleaned up very nice, with no scratches. I decided to do a change of plan to get them back to my uncle as soon as possible. I am going to refinish them as the promos he got. No extra chrome trim, and no repainting. I have to re-do the chrome, so I have some Spaz Stix, which I used before with good results. I have to prepare the chromed pieces, hopefully this week. I'll post some pics when I get a chance.
That is very nice. Back in the day, I built a '67 Convertible with Testor's Transparent Green. Needless to say, it was not pretty. I have another kit for a do over. Your build might make me get the old girl out.
Since this was something of my doing, I can say that while I would have welcomed Revell kitting this, I took great satisfaction in creating this model. Funny, I still have not built a sedan, and I have three unbuilt ones in the collection.
The wheels that are on the 1960 Buick are Modelhaus '57 Buick Borrani wire wheels, with the center caps detailed, mounted on Satco Firestone Deluxe Champion wide whites, which are also available from The Modelhaus . Iironically, I was in the process of painting this model when I received the news of Dad's death. Finishing it was very therapeutic, and I intend to never let this one go.
