Revell red/white/blue 53 Chevy Panel

Recommended Posts

While waiting for the 283 parts pack for my MAG dragster, I wanted to do remake of my 53 Chevy Panel that’s been sitting. While looking through posts of other build I saw this oldie but goodie that reminded me of one I did as a kid. Remember the Revell red/white/blue 53 Panel truck?

I’d finished it, but the body was flat black, like the gasser hot rods in primer. I saw someones red/white/blue 53 and thought how cool it’d be to have that one, especially since the 4th is here. Here’s some pics. Thanks for looking.

I remember when my Dad built the one that is in the box art photos.  He used "714" for the numbers because that was our new phone area code.

I like the colors on yours a lot better.

Thanks! I used the model masters lacquers, star spangled blue, reving red and white lightening, then added a little house of kolors pearl flake to the clear. I had to use the stars from the Glidden monza decals as I couldn’t find any stars let alone bigger ones.

I think this kit was patterned after a 1:1 Gasser from that era. I remember seeing a 1:1 Chevy Panel Gasser with that paint job many years ago, hard to forget that look.  I like how yours is turning out.

Thanks guys, the only thing I couldn’t replicate were the stars. I had to use some from another decal sheet
