    AMT Ladder Chief (1975)
    This model was started by John when he was 13 years old. John died shorty after he started this model in 1976. The model was stored in the box until recently when his father asked me to complete the assembly. When I received the model it was painted and partially assembled. I've left as much of John's work as I could.

    Outside picture and engine shots. I think I could us some photography lessons but here ya go.

    The lilac pearl looks pretty sharp in the sunlight but it just doesn’t show that well in the photograph.

    Thanks for all the nice comments. I was pulling my hair out on this one for a while but I’m happy with the way it turned out.

    MikeMc,
    Color balance…. I shot most of these pictures with a halogen light which must have caused the orange cast. The one picture that’s light was taken without any light or flash. I’ll try some sunlight.

    Thanks.

    66 Chevelle 2 door wagon

    I saw this ad in a magazine and thought it would make a sharp 2 door wagon.


    The black paint is Model Car World, the lower paint is silver metallic with lilac pearl from House of Color, the gold strip is also from House of Color. The grill is photo etch from Model Car Garage. The bumper and headlights are painted with Alclad II.
