1959 El Camino

Another one of my all-time favourite designs and one of my favourite kits, too. Finished this one this summer, paint is Zero base coats with Tamiya clear, wheels are from the kit but wear Modelhaus tyres and hubcaps.
(BTW My camera wasn't able to distinguish between the Chevy engine orangey/red and the body red but the difference IS THERE!)

On the other side of this model I had an unfixable paint mistake on the driver's door so I put this decal over it. Since it would now be a "two-sided" car, I decided to go with black-walls too while I was at it.

Very nice X-Frame Chevy! I really like these bodies a lot and you did excellent job with this build. I like the look with body colored steelies and hubcaps, also the white walls fit very nicely to this. The other side with that text and black wall tires looks very good, too. Very nice engine detail, but as a fan of those "W" Engines, I'd like to see a better picture of it...It looks so good from here!

Thanks everyone, your comments are very much appreciated.

Niko, I don't have more shots of the engine right now but how about a 409 in the mean time....

Beautiful! I always liked the 59 El Camino better than any that came after it! That was a creative idea for covering the paint problem!

Yes!

That engine looks so fine, too! As all of your builds do. Very nice work with all of them.
