Revell 1953 Chevy Sedan Delivery ratty gasser

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

This is the current reissue of Revell's '53 Chevy Sedan Delivery gasser/custom. I built mine as a ratty gasser. Given the age of the base kit, this was not a particularly fun model to build (I call these kind of kits "skill improvers"). Doing the patina finish was fun however. Thanks for looking, all comments and critiques welcomed as always.

Great looking patina finish. Your build looks great, but something about this kit's body has always bothered me. The windshield looks like it is raised on the top edge and the "fall" of the front edge of the hood just doesn't look correct to my eye. Like what you made of this kit.

Thanks, David. I'm not versed enough in the proportions to agree or disagree, all I know is this kit is a pig to build (kudos to those who have built the older versions with the opening doors- that had to really fun lining them up properly). If it wasn't for the finish turning out better than I had anticipated,  it would have relegated to the bin 'o doom of incomplete projects. Thanks again for the compliments.

Cheers,

Albert
