1950 3100 Lowrider


Recommended Posts

Built this from the AMT 3100 kit.  Always loved these in lowrider style so I figured I'd give it a shot.  Thanks to lowridermodelcarparts.com for the wheels and tires, fender skirts, chain steering wheel and swamp cooler.  Wouldn't be the same without them.  Wood bed and rails are balsa wood, and unfortunately,  you can't see the multicolor metallic metalflake clear I used on them in pics.  Made the front fogs from some old light housings I had and cutting off the flasher tops from the kit to use as lenses.  Mexican serape blanket is made from embroidery string.  Copious amounts of Molotow Liquid Chrome were used.  Tamiya lacquer paint was used on the body.  It's only my second time using it, and its a bit tricky to get even.  All in all happy with the results.
