    Dave I think that Chrysler is a 1/32 scale kit and it has a multi piece body.  I'd go with the Moebius '56 Chrysler kit if I were you.
    BTW Dave, I've been trying to send you a PM for a couple of days and it's telling me that you can't receive messages.  Either there is a problem, or, you need to delete a bunch of your old messages because you're only allowed to keep so many...  It's like your mailbox is full.

    Nice job Ray.  Isn't custom bodywork fun??

    The mailman delivered a package today.  I won a bid on EBAY for a 1/24 scale diecast model of a 1955 Pink Cadillac that Elvis bought for his Mom.  Since no model was made of a '55 Cadillac, this fills in a "hole" in my 1950's car collection.  It really is a pretty car.

    Only your outrageously creative mind could come up with something like this Ira.... Great work as always.

    Wow Ray, your custom styling work looks great and that Red color is awesome.  Keep up the good work.

    That's very creative Ray.  I've got all my dremel bits and attachments stored in the tool box style case that it came in with rows of slots and holes for the bits to sit in

    Thank you guys.   Yeah, you got that right Steven, if you can't do good BMF work then you shouldn't build 1950's cars.

    Very nice job Al.  I love the color and flames, and the interior is great.

    Great job Emmanuel.  This is one of my favorite cars as I used to own a '59 Coronet.  Yes, it has plenty of chrome foil work, and you did beautiful work on the engine and chassis.

    Thanks guys.  Don, I am by no means the king of anything, especially BMF.  You should only know how I sometimes have to re-do spots because of either wavy lines or tears.  New blades help a lot to prevent tears in the foil and scribing weakly defined trim areas helps to prevent wavy lines.  Above all, patience is the key to having a good foiling job.  I must be a real glutton for punishment by wanting to build all of these 50's cars with yards of chrome trim.

    Thank you for your very kind comments fellas, I really appreciate it.

    Thanks again guys.
    John, I found that this kit went together very well.  Just be careful when you trim and attach the vacu-formed glass.  You've got to trim the glass as close as possible to the bottom of the window openings, yet leaving just enough to be able to glue the glass in place, in order to be sure that the glass doesn't prevent the interior & dashboard from fitting up into the body completely.  Also, you may have to drill completely through the wheel back axle holes to allow the assembled wheels/tires to fit properly inside the body/wheelwells.
