'55, '56, '57 Chevy "El Caminos"

Recommended Posts

Started on the '56 years ago, before it was finished I decided it needed a '56 and a '57 to go with it. Finally got all 3 done, some wip photos here http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=55164&p=643252

The '56 and '57 have a much more finished inner bed.The '57 was by far the most involved, a lot of bodywork to get it where I was satisfied.

They're all three very nice builds Randy! I've always wanted to build an El Camino with that AMT Nomad. Maybe I'll get to it someday. Nice work on all three!

Thanks for compliments, all the great work I see on this forum really inspires me to improve my models !!

All are painted with automotive basecoat and clear, sanded and polished. I owned a collision repair shop for over 20 years, sold it to an employee last year and he still lets me raid the paint shelf for leftovers or mix up some if I can't find what I need, like the yellow '56

Nicely done. I'm particularly diggin' the '56 whose C pillar roof line flows nicely with the angled side trim.

Good jobs, buddie. Like them - they look really cool. Nice colors, nice wheels, nice stance.

Awesome, original builds. They're beautiful concept cars. The paint looks flawless.
