Scale I Build

Found 1 result

  1. I chose to build this Belair as a replica of one of my childhood family cars. My father bought the real car used around 1965 at a Ford dealership in my town. I was only five years old at the time but I remember going with him to pick it up. In the often-seen white with red interior, the car was equiped with a 283 and full wheel covers. The model is painted with Tamiya TS-26 Pure White and Testors wet look clear. The interior is Testors Guards Red enamel. I tried a little experiment with the fabric inserts on the seats. I found a photo sample of the fabric online and scaled it down to fit the seats. I printed it out on ordinary 20lb. bond paper on a laser printer, cut it out and stuck it down with 3M spray adhesive. I also experimented with the giving the glass a subtle tint by dipping the Glass in future shine that had a few drops of blue food dye mixed in. (I'm sure I read that on this forum somewhere.) I pirated the small block engine from the Revell '65 Chevy stepside pickup. The tires are from my parts box and the wheel covers are from the Revell 62 Impala kit. It's a great kit that I would like to build again. Maybe in a more unexpected colour, not red, white or black!
