Revell '57 Del Rio

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi all, been working on this kit lately. I'm trying to replicate the one my Dad had circa 1961. It was almost identical to Dan Weiss' outstanding example. I ordered up some Cumberland Green and Colonial white from MCW to get correct colors for it. It's a nice kit but does have some fit issues here and there but nothing serious.

Finished 'er up today. It was a fun yet challenging build. I really enjoyed the pleasant stroll down memory lane while building it.

Thanks for looking, comments and discussion always welcome!

Really nice build you have there, Ron....... I like the car, the paint colours are so vibrant and brilliant chrome work too. Your Dad would indeed be very proud. Late '50's American cars interest me, and if I wasn't specialising in building '50's Rolls-Royce model cars in 1:24 scale, I would go for kits like the one you have built, for sure.
