57 Chevy 150 build


Recommended Posts

So, after spending most of the past year building semis, I decided to slow up a little. Gonna build the Revell 57 Chevy 150 utility. Not one to be happy with traditional colors, I opted to mix my own. It layed down pretty nice. Gonna add the white to the rear area after some adequate cure time. 

Just curious about some feedback on my primary color. I call it copper-jacketed.

                                 Thanks

Thats a great color i really like it and after seeing that color if it was me i would go with a dark gray for the second color the white will take away from the copper the gray will blend in more.

I agree with everyone else on your primary color, it does look great. Since you are wanting to do a two-=tone paint job you may even consider colors other than white. There are some off whites and beiges that might look good as well. You might try some different second colors on the old picnic spoons to see if any of them look right to you. I think it looks really nice in a solid color that you have now.

Ditto on the color A.T.  As for the second color,  whit ewill surely look good but if not white, I agree with "espo".  Try some alternatives.

By the way, what brand/type paint is that.

I blended up some gloss white with a little bit of cream. Provides just enough of an off white to keep it from being too bright. 

Thanks for all the feedback. Always like to hear different opinions before I commit. PXL_20220521_180951014.thumb.jpg.92743062e6398af7dafb27fb78f52265.jpg

Thanks A.T.    Thats interesting about the paint you used. Sure came out smooth and looks good.  Hey, I'm in the Nashville area and there are no hobby shops.

Nashville? Cool...I really miss the days when we had model shops. Not a place with every hobby imaginable, but a shop with nothing but models and model related things.
