Picked up this kit on sale because I wanted to do a tri-five Chevy and this 57 looked like a good kit. Normally I don't like 2n1's, 3n1's, etc., but this wasn't too confusing. I got my inspiration from "Black Betty" (pictured below) but I flipped the colors as I don't want to do a gloss black car yet! Colors are Rustolem Cranberry and Rustoleum Gloss Black with 2 coats of Rustoleum Gloss Clear. All said, it was a good kit with no real fit issues. I kept the stock engine in this one, but I did want to put it in the weeds. I flipped the front end and gained what I was looking for. In the back, I just made little bump stop lifts to raise the axle. It doesn't drag the ground, but I tried smaller wheels that looked too small for the car, so I used the ones that came it the kit. Not a huge fan of "slammed" cars in real life, but I switched from making this a gasser once I opened it. Maybe next time. Thanx for looking.
Or is this just a date he randomly picked to throw off the bill collectors? Either way, Happy Birthday, you cranky old curmudgeon, whether it is today or not! We (Moonlight Modelers) celebrated your birthday last night. Fittingly, you weren't invited.
