MCM Regular

MCM Regular (3/6)

  1. 53 Revell Bel Air I did las year. Lots of aftermarket stuff ( top/wheels/Hydraulics/dash knobs/photoetch parts etc) Also did some kit bashing ( engines / firewall stuff / body parts) and scratch building ( visor, bumper guards, bloomers, etc) Some vendors I used for aftermarket parts: 3DScaleparts, Detail junkies, BNL, Modelhaus, Detail master , Derek Herb,, Replicas Miniatures of Maryland
  2. the colors really flow. the interior and body colors. nice model
  3. tks, yeah scratch built the skirts, rockers and gravel shields
  4. wanted to take some better pictures of this one. those folded white paper sheets looked awful.
  5. Thanks everyone. When I first painted I did not like color. I thought it was not appropriate for a 57 and did not stand out/flow with body. I painted engine 3 times due to issues with paint. At one point I was going to shelve it and forget about it. Once complete it grew on me and decided Teal looked good on a 57.
  6. sorry for your loss. I will keep your son in prayer.
  7. Tks I been wanting to do this kit but I could never find a Vert Kit out there. Once I found kit turns out it wasferent scalt to the 55 vert out there.
  8. Took roof off a 56´bel air. Used a lot of parts from a 55 chevy vert kiy even though they are different scale. Cut both bumpers to make one that would fir the 56 with a continental kit, cut convertible boot and stretched it. added sun visors. Do not recall where wire wheels cam from. Paint I had colors custom mixed at local automotive paint store. I mused same two colors to make interior colors. scrathbuild bottom rockers , gravel shields and skirts.
  9. 57 Chevy Vert. Light Teal Pearl base followed by 3 coats of Kandy Teal. Buried in clear. Almond colored interior. Pegasus 1101's with knockoff's from a 61' Chevy vert kit. Lowered to get the mean look. Hard to get what color looks like on camera. First pic is closest to real color. Rest come out with a darker shade.
  10. yeah I just reduce an image , play around in photoshop to get color I want and print on testor decal paper.
  11. 61 Imapla. Painted a custom pearl dark green with white top/some light pearl added. Murals printed and installed by myself. Blended them in to paint with airbrush. Pegasus 1109 wire wheels , slammed to get that lowrider look. Engine stock just painted engine block same color as body and alclad chromed everything else.
