1988 Buick Regal Lowrider

Recommended Posts

HI!

This lowrider model is based on a 1/25 promo which had no information of model company that has made it.

Promo was packed in white cardboard box with color prints of drawn pics of red Regal and large Buick- logos.

Maybe it´s made by Brooklin or MPC or AMT... I don´t know.

Same company has obviously made the Buick Reatta promo bcause it it so similar to this Regal.

But on to model:

I Disassembled the promo and painted it with tamiya paints. Body has:

Surfacer white + Light pearl red + lame flake ( PS) + clear + metallic orange ( thin mist layers ) + clear

Some modifications to rear subrame was done also and finally I added Pegasus wheels.

Very cool! I have one of these I'm thinking of making into a lowrider.

This and the Reatta promo were done by GM itself rather than a kit/promo manufacturer.
