57 Chevy Nomad

I would like to once again thank everyone on the forum who takes the time to teach and share. I have always loved 57 Chevy’s. Despite this I never attempted to build one because I knew I would not be able to get the multiple little details in the body and interior correct. However, applying techniques and knowledge I have learned from others here, I finally felt confident enough to take one on. While this one will never be a contest winner, I’m very happy with the way it came out. As always, thanks for looking.

That looks pretty darn good from here. We don't see that much 57 nomad being built. Really clean paint and trim. I can only speak for myself but , first and foremost I build for me. Although I admire those who spend a lot of time and money on a single model and these are  truly amazing. If you like what you build, then don't worry, the goal for me is to have fun building. None of my models are 100 %, but I have a 100% fun building them. So go ahead and have fun building.

You’re too modest. That turned out great. Looks like it was built by a seasoned modeller. 👍

Great looking build, and as others have mentioned, the paint and chrome trim are all cleanly done.
