Monogram 1957 Chevrolet

Recommended Posts

In the early eighties I got back into model cars after a long hiatus and this was one of the first that worked out OK.

I was working for a Swiss auto importer/distributor at the time and one of our painters showed me how to use car paint with an airbrush. 

I'd also just discovered Bare Metal Foil, without which I might never have revived my boyhood interest. 

I built it kurbside because, although I've always loved cars, I've never been mechanically minded. No internet research, of course,  but I guess photos of 57 Chevys weren't that uncommon  :P.

Beautiful paint finish. All of the trim looks very realistic in color and finish.

Absolutely Beautiful Peter! Is the script on the hood and tail fins done with gold BMF or painted?

Thanks Gregg. I did the scripts first with BMF then painted them with Tamiya clear yellow.
