The 1st photo I actually thought it was a real car on a pier.  This is one humdinger of a build and backdrop use!

Very sharp build.  Good detail work on the engine. This is a nice kit.  I built one in the 1990's.  I wanted to build another so I bought one on Ebay earlier this year.

Holy cow, that's gorgeous! The interior is fabulous and the engine bay looks great.

When I saw the first photo, I thought for just a moment that it was a real 1:1 car.

Oooo! Very very clean build and gorgeous paint and toning down of the kit chrome. I like to decal the emblems but not every kit comes with them and the after-market emblem decals are expensive and not available for every kit; I need to try this “BMF under the paint then sand” technique, 

I have a soft spot for shoe-box Chevies, my first two 1:1 cars (1,000 yrs ago) were a ‘56 210 followed by a ‘55 Bel Air. Both were wonderful cars and both less than $400.  I recently picked up the Revell ‘56 210 kit at Michael’s for $25, after seeing your build now I want this Monogram ‘55 convertible as well.
