The chrome tree in this kit got the lacquer coating but not the "chrome", so I did a blacked-out version using various sheens of black, gloss, semi-gloss, matte, satin, and flat. The minibike chopper was in the kit as well although there was no mention of it anywhere on the box. Comments welcome, thanks for looking!

I'm debating on weather or not re doing the rest of the chrome in Alclad. I have three different chromes (bare metal foil, kit chrome, and alclad) Used bare metal foil for the interior window trim, and the seat trim polished some aluminum tubing to make some snazzy exhaust tips The kit didn't have any mounting nubs for the heater hose on the intake, and the water pump, and I didn't realize that until after I got it together, so I drilled some holes in the H2O pump and the intake, and ran some D guitar string in the hose to keep it's shape, and to mount it to the engine.
For Christmas I picked up a Monogram 1/12 scale '57 Chevy Bel Air. I had one when I was a kid, and did the strip version, and seeing that most of these are built like that I'd thought I would do mine bone stock. I'm doing it in Larkspur Blue, with an Ivory top, and blue interior. More pics to come
