Phantom 1958 Nomad

This is another one of my builds. It's a car I think should have been. Roof is from a '56 Nomad. Sorry, I don't have any during the build pics.

Again, please forgive the dust on the model.

That's sweet! Wish they would have made these 1:1. Just saw another one tonight up on the 'Bay.

I, too, wish GM would have produced these instead of a plain wagon. I found a resin '58 on feeBay. Mine is made by grafting the top from a '56 onto the '58 body. Both kits were from Revell.

Exterior paint is fingernail polish. Interior is painted with DupliColor lacquer. Red and Sand Beige.

Sorry for the out of focus pics too.

Very nice work. The only thing I would have done diffrently was to use the tailgate from the 56 versus the trunk lid from the 58, other than that, great work! Chevy definitly should have done this.

Lee, My initial plan was to use the tailgate from the '56. The problem I ran into is there was too much of a curve. The '56 tailgate was basically straight and I fooled around with it for a few hours. It just would not have looked right. If it fit at the bottom, the sides didn't line up and vice-versa. Maybe I should have added strip plastic "bars" to simulate the '56 though.

Bob, Thanks as I, too, have an affinity for wagons.

A classic custom and a longroof, what's not to love? Yeah, that rear end is a head scratcher but you gotta do what's within your means and what keeps the build fun. Forcing something that's not what I want and is too complicated is modeling suicide for me.
