A golden oldie, built back in 1995, AMT 57 Belair New PICS

Recommended Posts

This AMT "Old Style"  Chevy was Odds & Ends French Country Yellow with an Odds & Ends white top.  Body was then clear coated and Bare Metal foil applied.  I used the kit decals for inside the spear.

Interior is painted a custom mixed shade of yellow with white seat inserts.   Engine, wheels and tires are from the AMT 55 Chevy pickup kit.  The driveshaft is an aluminum tube while the kit supplied the U-joints glued in the ends. I used a piece of wire and bent it to achieve the lowered nose and I couldn't resist putting in some Photo-Etched speaker covers.

All in all a very fun build.  One of the first models I completed after getting back into modeling in 1995.
