Got this project going over on the 2012 Lowrider Tour community build.

But since it's leaning towards the Kustom side I'm posting it here.

The kit is the Revell Speed Shop Express Chevy Panel.

I've redone the interior and made flush fitting skirts that follow the

bottom curve of the rear fender.But what I wanted to share was the

body work on the Phantom Wagon part.

I like it already. I love deliveries, but a 2-door window model is something Chevy should have done in '53-4. Nice work so far.

A little update....

Played around with different grills.Going with tube grill.

Made a visor but I might not use it.Molded the grill surround and

angled the head lite buckets forward.Also lowered the windshield

and made new trim for it.

Painted the roof with Testors Phoenician Yellow Lacquer

and the body and visor with Testors One Coat Root Beer.

Kinda like a Rootbeer float ....LOL

Added flat black to the door seams,flush skirts,and rear gate then I resanded the whole body.

This will darken the seams with the final paint coat.Still undecided on the wheels and tires

..right now it sits on Lyles 48 Chevy style rims..Might go with 55 Chevy full wheel covers.

Fly fishing is taking over my spare time and it seems like this build is dragging a bit.

Pay no mind to the red and the orange Chevies...they are there for encouragement.

The 51 is a stalled build and the red one is like 15 years old.

It came off the sprue tree..I just added a Dremel and some paint.

Will do a how-to if y'all are interested.
