Cool. Great color on this one. For some time I've held the opinion that this has been the single most historically significant model kit ever made. The best model? Debatable.  Most significant? No doubt.

Man, is that a great color for a '57 Chebby. Some colors just belong on some cars, and this is one them.

Great looking color and you have the body chrome well trimmed. How is the interior and chassis doing.

   Rick, that is a spectacular looking color on that car!

It fits the era very well.  And you might just have some

dust on your lens, or if it's a smart phone, maybe a

layer of fingerprints!?!  LOL!!!

Was the Krylon sea glass gloss or satin? All I can find is satin.

That is a terrific choice of period correct color. The foiling work looks really sharp, too.

Super clean work. Thanks for raising the bar.
