Thank You, guys!

Body color is Tamiya "Royal light grey", clear coated with Tamiya TS 13.

Since the 62 Pontiac SD 421 was built for people with performance in mind, I gave the model a very "plain" look, painting it light grey, with black steel wheels as a contrast.

Regards

Ludwig

Beautiful looking paint. I like how you combined a modern color with the traditional looking Pontiac. The interior and engine detailing looks factory.

Thanks for the paint and color info.

By the way, Model Car Garage has a photo etch set for it. I was so excited to get it because after all these decades, it includes the correct 421 fender emblems. Was disappointed to find that they only reproduced  the passenger side. You get 2 passenger side. The actual emblems are side specific. I contacted them year ago and they didn't offer a correction. 

When I build my  62 Super 421 Super Duty I'll put the one correct one on and just deal with it 

Hope this info is helpful

Sweet! Love the understated colors and overall sleeper look of this Poncho. So are the tires/ model from the AMT “Polyglass Gasser II” kit? If so, I gotta keep a look for that one, can never build too many sixties Pontiac’s!
