From Hachette's Mexican series is this '56 Chevy - I only added Virginia plates from a VERY old Autoworld sheet (decals for 2 Mexican 1956/57 plates are included) - model had 2 mirrors (!) and antenna already mounted. Got it last week, took it out for some pictures on this frosty morning - the roof is wider at the rear than at the front - I'm not sure if this is correct, otherwise a nice model:

And here, for comparison with its smaller German cousin: 1957 Opel Rekord P1 (from Hachette's German 1/24 Opel series):

I too have one coming and for a very special reason.  My folks had one just like that.  Thanks for posting.

Did you do the windshield rubber or does it come like that?

That's a beauty Helmut, I'm glad I have one coming. I love '56 Chevy's and this will be something different for my collecction.

Looks darn good to me.

 

Thanks, guys - the model comes just like that - the only thing I did to it was applying those old license plates.
