'58 Impala

Recommended Posts

Revell kit. I wasn't really happy about the side trim which came as plated parts, otherwise ok.

 Color combo is Snowcrest White/Tropical Turquoise.

Anders.... this is a really interesting scale model motor car, and I do like the colour combination. This turquoise and white '58 Impala and also a blue and white '55 Chevy that I've seen on here recently are just the best two-tone colours for the '50's period. Your build is very nicely done indeed.

Lovely job. Looks great in turquoise. Why weren't you happy with the side trim? It looks fine to me.

A thing of beauty, what paints did you use? I am trying to find those (or similar) colours.

Beautiful '58 Impala !  The separate side trim makes this kit easier to do than the AMT version but I'm not sure about it either . :)

Beautiful looking build. Your exterior and interior colors look perfect, it's 1958 all over again. Sure miss the bright colors of long ago.

Real fine build!! 

Super clean, and with great color choice. 

Never the less it has the very same "problem" the '53 Ford kits from Lindberg, and now AMT have, the side trim is all molded separate, and that gives the finished product kind of a toy-ish look. 

That didn't stop me of building multiples of the '53 Ford kit B)
