My attempt to drag Revell's horrible chopped '57 Ranchero into the 21st century....

Wow! Your build looks good.

I never thought of using an early Corvette windshield frame. I have the remains of an old built-up that my Uncle built in the 70's that is missing most of the windshield frame. Now I know what to do with it.

Actually, that is a '57 Thunderbird windshield and frame... A Corvette may work though.

Great looking build. I like how you turned it into a roadster. The chopped top version that Revell came up with was just unrealistic looking and the reason I never bought one. I should have and did something like this.

You knocked this out of the park, nice one! Revell should use this as the box art!

I may be using that idea too, I have an old Ranchero kit like that and it’s a build up. The glass and roof are rough that could definitely save that kit.... looks great and great idea.....

Definitely improved a lemon!

The chopped roof just completely ruined that kit. And they're never going to fix it, so any way to eliminate that roof is welcomed!

That's the best treatment of that kit that I've ever seen. Great job!
