My buddy Raul Perez gave me this kit 4 -5 years ago.

He had already detailed/built the engine and the chassis.

Decided it was about time to finish the car.

Paint is from an old spray can of House of Kolor "Tru Blue Pearl"

Flames are from Slixx Decals

Wire Wheels - ?

I found some nice "doll house" piano hinges to make the bonnet operational

The vents decided to reappear after grinding them off & doing all the trick stuff to keep them from "ghostin' back".

I wasn't gonna "Flame-it"...but, It's gone past deconstructing to repair, plus ran out of paint

(HOK "Tru Blu Pearl" is no longer available)

The Flames help disguise the vents a little...it is what it is

Another point...the wire wheels (they were in the box I got from Raul)?

Does anyone know 1/16th scale kit kit they are from, my buddy George Mattox needs to know

Nice job, Curt!!

If it was still mine, it would still be in the box!! :)

The wheels are from the AMT 1/16th scale 1955 T-Bird. I don't know if they're also available in the 1957 kit.

It's the Revell standard Phaeton kit (also available as a street rod kit) which comes with wire wheels, but I don't know for sure if those are the kit wheels.
