Ford 1957 DEL RIO CUSTOM

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone.

I present my last model. Top chop, remove emblems and handles, change side sticks, reduce and integrate bumpers. Engine compartment changes. Zimmerman wheels, BMW Brown paint and the Renault beige. Enjoy

Those wheels really work on that car. Gorgeous, and I'm no 50's car guy by any stretch.

Nice build! I like the subtle chop and the Meteor-style side trim!

But what's with the transit bus steering wheel angle?

Well done, I just went through your Fotki pages.  Very nice, has a really good look that you may not even notice unless you look to see how you did it.

Lots of little touches on this make it stand out. I really like the engine compartment, and the bumper work. But I agree why the big steering wheel at a weird angle ??

That is very nice, and great to see a different style of build on this kits.

Superb work on the subtle roof chop too, very nicely done.

Hello, the firewall that holds the steering wheel, and glued to the bodywork. I had to for the photo stuck like that. The angle then changed
