Something a Little Different

1957 Chevy Bel Air
StanGlover posted a topic in Model CarsI’m not normally into ‘50s or earlier cars but I figured every modeler needs to do at least one ‘57 Chevy in their lifetime! This is my first attempt at using bare metal foil and may be my last 😅 The trim turned out ok but boy is the process tedious. I painted the interior Krylon Colormaxx flat black with Tamiya XF-16 Aluminum as the accent color. The body is Testors Extreme Lacquer Turquoise and the roof is Tamiya TS-45 Pearl White. This kit has a decent amount of detail to it for such a cheap kit, but the final fit of the hood, bumpers, headlight and taillight trims isn’t great. Overall I’m pleased with the results for my shelf, but I’ll probably stick to my usual 60s-90s cars with less chrome trim!
5 spoke mag wheels 1/16 wantedLooking for the set of four cragar chrome mags from the 1/16 amt '57 chevy kit or whatever else had them. Can use the custom tires as well. These... please
bbowser posted a topic in WIP: NASCARThis will be the last one of the year. I really like this kit, may build another as a stocker with a 6. I was disappointed with the decals, no sponsor name or drivers names, guess they saved on royalties. #87 was Buck Baker, 1956 and 1957 Grand National champ. The Black Widow was basically a factory race car, lightweight and with the new 283 small block with mechanical fuel injection. I believe it was a milestone creating 1 HP per cubic inch of displacement.

65 Lincoln and Resin 57 210 4 door
badcaditude posted a topic in WIP: Model CarsThis Forum wasn't easy to find. Here's the Inspiration. (http://blog.hemmings.com/index.php/2013/10/20/hemmings-find-of-the-day-1967-lincoln-continental-2/) BLACK with BLACK 1967 Lincoln Continental 4 Door with the Vinyl removed from the Roof. A 1953 Nash (?) Flying Lady Hood Ornament was added. Hood Ornament? We don't need no Stinking Hood Ornament. If I could drive, I'd buy this 1967. The only thing I would change is... the Exhaust. For some reason... they're never loud enough. A set of Cherry Bomb Glasspacks would cure that. Here's the Victim. I'm not going to convert this into a 67. I just need a good Hardtop to fit this Body. I believe I have similar set of wheels or I can use Baby Moons or Dog Dish Wheel Covers. I've done one as a Wagon and another one (Pretty much) Factory Stock. It's time for something TWISTED. The next Contestant is a Resin Realm 1957 Chevy 210 4 door. Okay-Okay... I'll admit it, I like 4 door cars and Wagons. I haven't any pictures of the one my older brother built and drove waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back in the early 70's. It was all Black with Black Interior. It had a built 327c.i.d. and I can't remember if it was a Manual 3 or 4 speed trans.. I helped him change it once. It was one of those cars that you heard loooooong before you caught sight of it. Here's my dilemma, I got sick and lost some vision. I can't Re-scribe the Panel lines in the Resin Body. If there's anyone in my area of the Frozen State of Connecticut that wants an Unbuilt AMT 57 Chevy Kit: 638 in exchange for Re-scribing the Resin Body's Panel Lines, let me know. (The Unbuilt AMT 57 Chevy Kit: 638) I bought this AMT Kit: 638 because I couldn't remember which kit I needed. (The AMT 1957 Chevy Bel Air Hardtop needed and bought) As it turned out I needed the older AMT 1957 Chevy Bel Air Hardtop. I'll always remember it as the"Pepper Shaker" issue. It seems funny to me because, it was the same Brother's favorite Model kit. How weird is that? Another weird thing about this kit is... the upper Grille part that's supposed open with the Hood... doesn't. I can still build... albeit slowly and carefully. If I couldn't... my Doctor wouldn't be happy with my Demeanor, his new nickname and choice of Colorful Metaphors hurled at him. I can live without driving but not cars.
