'57 Chevy Bel Air

Recommended Posts

 Nothing much to say about this one. Factory stock '57 Chev. Always wanted to do one in this color combo which is Adobe beige/Sierra Gold and here it is😊. AMT kit.

Beautiful looking Bel Air. In '56 and '57 this color combination was very popular for Chevrolet and was always my favorite. You really captured the correct color for the fabric seat inserts.

Nicely done. I have too ask....is this the classic been around forever AMT kit ? Or the famous re-tool? Would be interested to hear from all which '57 Bel Air kit the lovers of this car consider the best....regardless of mfg or scale.

it's the re-tool pro shop kit. I still like the old kit but the re-tool has more accurate body proportions and better detail. The Revell 2d sedan is also a very nice kit.

Very beautiful, I have one to build too, what paints did you use?

 

The paint is from MCW Finishes.

I've always thought the new tool AMT 57 was under-rated. The only shortcoming is I think they put too small of tires on it. Yours is a gorgeous build and the color combo is just what i would pick. Nice job!

Absolutely stellar work and results.

There's a kit error that could have been addressed...the wheel on the spare tire has lug nuts; there should be holes, not nuts.
