I'm primarily interested in the '55 Hardtop since I want to make it a mild street machine.

Bonus question: Will AMT's Polyglas GT tire fit on the back without rubbing?

The tires they included just seem too skinny for this car.

My gasser above uses a lot of parts ( chassis stuff ) from Revell's 41 Willys kit...used the motor too, tires...front & rear.

Derrick, the color combination on that slot car really pops! What paints did you use on it?

Thanks Monty!!! The red is HOK's Hot Rod red, in their Kustom Kolor line, the silver is Orion Silver. Then I shot it with a 2 part urethane clear, polished & waxed!! ;)

I can't even fathom trying to plumb a nitrous system in with those twin turbos. Nice touches with the hood vents and custom grille.

Note to self: Silver seems to work on these cars....

Cranky, looks like you've built a few of these along the way. Lots of creativity there.

In regard to this one, it looks like you and Gluebomber were on the same page...kinda. Apparently great minds do think alike. The color combo rocks! .

What paint did you use on Electric Midnight?

Wow. Really nice ones in this thread...I`m hesitant to post mine.

But here it is. Very mild custom (only changed the wheels and exhaust).

David, why on earth would you be hesitant to post a build like that? What paint did you use to get that shade of red?

Thanks, Monty, I love Gluebomber's well crafted and painted model. Electric Blue is a combination of House of Kolor Cortez blue and Passion Purple and then I think some blue pearl flake.

Thanks guys. Just meant everyone`s builds here are just off the chain! Great work!!

What paint did you use to get that shade of red?

From memory, that was Mica Red followed by several coats of Duplicolor Red Metalcast, and about 5 coats of Duplicolor clear.

Just incredible. Thanks for the links! Always nice to see what methods another modeler used to get the results they wanted.
