Very nicely done! I take it you applied the BMF before the clearcoat?

Thanks! No, the foil was applied after clear coating.

Gorgeous finish on what was a great looking car! Awesome detailing as well! I’m dog-earing that interior photo as well. I have that kit minus the interior. My plan is to either scratch build one or modify one I have from a destroyed ‘60 Dodge Phoenix promo that is a very close fit, albeit, not a very close match style-wise.

Chris, if you still need a '60 DeSoto interior, I have one that someone stuck in my '59 Plymouth - it's painted and a little beat-up but definitely usable. PM me your address and I'll send it along. I'll sink it in the purple pond tonight to get it cleaned up.

Very nice build. The DeSoto was bold, but very nicely-done, and I think a bit underrated. I consider it and it's companion Chrysler to be one of Exner's better designs.

Beautiful build! You have the correct wheel stance as well. Great job with an old kit that always had a soft spot for me.

Hi Anders,

 

very good looking De Soto Adventurer! What brand is the color You used? Spray-Can, I guess?

Best regards

Ludwig

Fantastic, absolutely solid gone.

I have the unmade 'USA Oldies' box version in my stash, your build inspires me to have a go at it.
