    Thanks for the nice comments !!!!
    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 !!

    Hi guys,
    back in the forum, I quite busy because I'm restoring a real car, so it is hard for me right now to finish a kit. Anyway I decide to show you an old friend, which is one of my favorite built kit, I think I never post it here. It starts as a Model King Nascar model, mixed with a Revell Torino and some Modelhaus stuff for the front grill and hood., vinyl top is home made, color is ( believe it or not ) from Citroen, and is very close to the green use in those years. Hope you'll like it

    I really like your document !!! Don't you think they do a different way on red interior ??

    Thanks for the comments, I've detailed the interior after doing some research, and a nice pic off the back bucket seats

    I forgot to say that hubcaps came from 66 Fairlane, wheels from my parts box. And I'm quite happy about the flocking on this model, it goes well for once...
    Some more pics

    Hi guys
    not very present these days on the forum as I'm working on a 1/1. Anyway, here is my last model : a 66 Galaxie from AMT, an original from 66 which I bought as a glue and paint bomb. I don't know which glue has been used in this time but it was a mess to restore, and the body went on multiple pieces !!!!!
    So here it is, not my best work but considering the way it was before I start working on it, I'm quite happy. I will surely restore the chrome parts next time !!!
    My inspiration for this one came from the car David Vincent drove in the TV show, searching after uncommon people with fingers problems....
