My club recently did a same kit contest with this kit. One of our members went to Michaels and they had these, no doubt left over from a Build n Take, for $2 each. So he emptied the shelf so we could do this little friendly competition.

I decided to do mine as a retro T-Top car. The indent on the roof just screamed for this, so I did what the voices in my head told me to. I had a 35 year old can of Duplicolor in 1971 Chevy green from when my dad had a '71 BelAir. Funny thing is that the can still works!

Side view - I used the kit tires and wheels since they worked well with my retro chrome theme. I did add chrome to the door handles and mirrors in this view. The chrome grill in the first photo just does it for me!

Rear view also gets the chrome treatment with BMF between the tail lights and Alclad on the lower pan. I wanted to test masking off a body for Alclad and it worked well. Now I know I can do convertible windshield surrounds.

Top view of T-Tops and interior. I followed the roof crease for the top cut. My original vision was to make tops for it, using the pieces I cut out of the roof to vacuform clear parts. Then I decided I was doing my usual over complication and went back to simple to get it done for the club meeting.

Interior was done in two tone beige tones which I think works well with the green body. The chrome theme continues here with a BMFed console. I practiced my Tamiya tape skills on the the color seperations.

This was a fun project that got another build into my case!
