1955 Chevy Nomad a la Roth

Recommended Posts

A quick (for me anyway) quarantine build. Started at the end of February, finished yesterday. Just trying to have a little fun with this one and not get overly obsessed. Chassis built box stock, hood glued closed.

A sort of "what if"/tribute car. Decals from the Roth '57 Chevy applied to the AMT Nomad. Roof and tailgate were smoothed, and the hood rockets from the '57 were grafted into the '55 hood. Roof was striped using Tamiya fine line masking tape. Tires from the '50 Olds kit, wheels from Replicas & Miniatures.

This looks great, you could bet Roth would have done something like this. The '57 hood really gets your attention. Very nice smooth finish and I like the creativity.

WOW This is stunning. Big Daddy would approve. Like David said - the 57 hood is a great addition
