The last of 2012 ('51 Chevy)

After finishing my 1940 Ford SD, I thought I could build one more kit in 2012.

Like I have a factory stock 1951 Chevy alredy built, I decided to build one as a 1950's hotrod. Started on the 20th painting the body, and finished today. It's far from perfect, after all, it's just a three day build, and I never have the same care on building a modiffied car than I have building something factory stock, but I think that in general it turned out ok.

The paint is Tamiya Metallic Green over Tamiya Gun Metal.

Thanks for looking!!!

Great job Tulio. I just did one stock but it took a lot longer than 3 days :lol: . Love the paint and wide whites. That 6-banger looks good too.

So...you wanted to build it fast in case the Earth-consuming fireball did come? :lol:

It still looks better than anything that takes me a year to do.

That's excellent build.....In Three Days?! I can't get the engine finished in three days and you built whole car and it looks awesome. The paint and detail is incredible, like the stance too. Good work.
