    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.

    The three sets of "Mag Look" wheelcovers were different between the manufacturers in the one-to-one world, in that the spoke shape and depth were different, as well as the centers. I did quite a lot of research on this matter, and I found that the wheelcovers in the Revell '65 Chevrolet Chevelle Z16 will work on the Chevrolet products from 1965 through 68, which had these covers as an option.
    The wheelcovers in the Lindberg '66 Chevrolet Chevelle SS396 are wrong for Chevrolets, but will be accurate for 1968 Shelby GT350 and 500 Mustangs, and 1966-1968 Plymouths and Dodges.
    The wheelcover I used was from Missing Link Resin, which were originally from a MPC Jeepster, which I modified the centers by removing the lip, and giving it a very slight concave and were cut down to fit the Mobieus' kit Steelies. I used the same cover on a '69 XL Convertible I did a few years back 

    Yes I tend to "count rivets", but it is your model. The others can be used if that is your choice, as they are very close.

    Very nice build!!!  I really like the color combination.
    I have the same model, and I am having a dilemma with mine. I am either going to shorten it to a 6 1/2 foot bed F150, or modify the bed into an F250. I started with a built-up, that I cleaned up, but put aside to build one of the Mobieus' '69's.

    I really like that one.

    That looks really good. My Grandmother had a '61 4 door sedan in a color close to that. I may do a model of her car, as I have a derelict convertible and a derelict coupe. I have to make a decision between the sedan and a Country Squire wagon.
