Lil coffin Gseeds

Recommended Posts

I’ve had in my stash for years but have never built, the Lil Coffin, wanting to get as close to the real car as I could I googled the car and found lots of pics of it ,built pretty box stock and adding no extra details , only thing I did change was the tires to the black wall rear slicks and thin white wall tires up front, didn’t really see any early 60’s pictures of the car with the wide white tires that are on the restored Lil Coffin except on model car boxes, did the interior as close to the early pics I found with gold and pearl white and the outside of the car was painted a gold base and a candy brandy wine with 4 coats of 2K clear , all and all a nice quick build taking about 2 weeks, not sure why I never built this before but now glad to have this in my show case ! Thanks for looking guys !!!

That's a beautiful build. The paint is especially pleasing with just the right flake size for the color.

Not often you get such a "just right" look out of such a "simple" build.  No doubt the colour really brings it together.  This has been on my list for a long time but hasn't popped to the top yet.  I can only hope mine comes out as good as this!

Cheers

Really pretty, clean. Like the boat tail Riviera in the background.

Sharp car Gary. Candy brandy wine  is a favorite color. Nice work.

Should be the box-art car if it's ever re-released!

That's got to be thee finest example of that kit that I've ever seen ! 

I've been tempted to buy the Lil Coffin (and the 'Medicine Van' , or whatever its name is) if for nothing other than the included  mascot whom I refer to as "Skip" .

That DeSoto Firedome looks quite similar to the one in the AMT kits of yore (e.g. , the 1953 F-100 , etc.)  

Keep up the great work !
