57 Nomad

Recommended Posts

Another build sped up by the quarantine. Kit arrived in the mail on Thursday, I finished it this morning. Built entirely out-of-box. Paint is Testors Flame Red over the bare plastic. The foiling got tedious so I gave up and finished with a Molotow pen. It came with that hood scoop, but I dont think it was meant to be used. I had clearance issues with the tunnel ram and carbs. I had to grind out the inside of the scoop, as well as add a gasket to get the hood to close. Eh, not bad for a 70s engineered kit.

Looks great, especially the paint work. This is about the best one of these Nomad kits I've seen. As you pointed out they have issues, mostly with body proportions.

I have no idea how you got something that nice built in less than a week.  I can't get the parts out of the box in less than a week.  Nice work!
