    Thanks for the nice comments, I've done a black wash in the grill but the the holes are not very deep so the result was very bad, so I put out all the "wash" and let just a little bit not to have the "toy look". Might try another wash maybe...

    Some more pics:


    On the pics the wheels chrome looks a bit tired as we can see the plastic color under it but when looking at the model without APN flash, it's not so evident

    1960 Imperial Crown Coupe
    Hi guys,
    Back with an old built, it starts its life as a unpainted built kit, than I restore it more than 15 years ago. I decide to give it a refresh. Some new foil, new chrome bumpers from Modelhaus, and a good polish on the paint. Wheels I used were from the AMT 65 Riviera, and tires from "American Satco" ( remember this ??? ). Far from perfect but I still like the way it looks  Hope you will like it too

    I've done this two tone after seeing it on an original ad from 59 ( it was a convertible )

    The interior is from Modelhaus Dave, not the one from the Belvedere

    1959 Dodge Custom Royal D500
    Hi guys,
    Back with an "old glory", a built from at least 10 years ago. The subject is one of my favorite as it is a 59 Dodge from Johan, interior from the Modelhaus, chassis and engine from an AMT 58 Belvedere. Be kind with this one as it is far from perfect ( especially the engine bay ) but I like it and the new pics are better than the first attempt as it was a rainy day when shooted the 1st time. It was a challenge to foil as there's a lots of chrome, the chrome on the bumpers is getting old but well, there it is....
    Hope you'll like it

    Thanks for the nice comments, The only stuff I bought from Modelhaus was the front bumper and grill ( it's in one piece ) and the front hood. All the rest was included in the Nascar kit, also the factory wheels !!
