Hi Tom, thanks !.  Yes indeed, it's also sad that there is no big choices in regular plastic kits anymore,  stock versions, of 1950-1985 american cars. Times where Jo-Han models were king is long gone. New generation now is more attracted with multimedia games, not much building car models. Then, from the NNL show coverages I can see here and there, customs ans lowriders are legion. Not my cup of tea at all...

All the more reason to forge ahead and build what you like the way you like to see it built. Only strive to please yourself and let others see the wisdom in what you choose.

That is really cool!  Doing that color totally makes sense.  Funny I see this, just sent off the dashboard of a kit in my stash to get chrome plated, I ain't painting that!

(when I read "flat top" thought aircraft carrier, was expecting airplanes on the hood)

You did this resin conversion real justice. Very crisp and well finished. A handsome ride.

Amazing to see this shape, not as popular as the coupes or convertibles. The other 4 door style has a slightly taller roof style but only the old Johan's have that.

Have to say the 1960 is my favourite year, check my avatar, that is a flat top sedan. Years ago I built a replica of it from the Gunze Sango 1/32 kit. It was available before Monogram's pink convertible I believe and the only thin available other than the Johan at the time.

Thank you John. Yes, I also love the 1960 Flat top as much as the '59. Your conversion looks really awesome too, feel free to share more pics. :)
