This one I built several years ago. It's got a corduroy interior & some custom touches.

Nice looking custom. I, like everyone else, love the interior and the paint. Also the cover for the convertible top, did you make that or is it a kit piece? Congratulations on a beautiful model. :wub:

Very cool!

What kit did the '56 Olds Fiesta wheel covers come from?

Ahhhhh, yes. Corduroy to replicate tuck-n-roll "upholstery!"

Good to see it again. Haven't seen that used in decades, but it was 'the real thing' in the 60's in the modeling world.

Squint your eyes a little (to blur out the fiber "hairs") and it looked just like tuck-n-roll.

Goes hand-in-hand with the old days' sewing thread for spark plug wires.

Nice model, Ron, especially considering its age.

Thank you again for all the great comments! Yes, I guess I'm a little behind the times with my upholstery. I built this model back in the mid 90's & was just fooling around with different fabrics & found a good sized swatch of corduroy & I thought...that would look like tuck n roll..from a fair distance..lol, so I tried it. I was pleased with the results. I also used the same material for the interior of a 51 Chevy Bel Air that I haven't posted photos of yet.

Ron Martz...I'm pretty sure the convertible boot was included in the kit.

Luke...I think the Olds Fiesta caps came from the Revell "Skips Drive In" 59 Ford Skyliner kit.

A special thank you to Dr. Cranky...Virgil, I watch your videos on you tube all the time! Very informative & entertaining too. Keep up the good work.
