Yet Another AMT 57 Bel Air (New Tool)


Recommended Posts

Started a few days ago with a body that I had painted years ago, I reshot some Tamiya Italian Red over it. The wheels are a set of AMT 69 Chevelle SS Wheels that actually inspired this build.


Engine is from the kit, with an intake from the AMT 55 Chevy Sedan kit. Parts box "Corvette" valve covers and metallic grey painted headers.




Frame is done. I used the stock exhaust and just mated it to the headers.


Thanks for looking! Al l comments welcomed.

Got some work done on the interior of this one yesterday.


painted with Humbrol Satin 174 red, which I think came out too shiny so I'm going to paint over all the red with matt 60 red. I used MCG flocking for the carpet and I did not get the results I wanted. I really like Ken's fuzzy fur but I don't have any red, so I will have to see if I can fix this better. I was going to have this one with a red and white interior but the red ran in the crevices so much I decided it needed to be red and black :-) I still need to do the BMF on this and paint the rubber floor mats a flat red.


That's it for now!
