´51 Chevrolet Bel Air Deluxe Convertible

Recommended Posts

Here´s my version of this kit. Almost box stock, tyres from Revell ´68 Charger with whitewall stickers from Pegasus.

Basic plumbing & wiring and few modifications.

Color: Tamiya luftwaffe blue.

Flame color: Tamiya pearl white & pearl clear.

I used flame lazy Modeler flame masks.

Allthought kit needed a lot of work I´m still quite happy with the result.

Of course there´s many things that I now could do better and that´s the reason I´m planning to buid a Fleetline version in the near future.

Questions and comments are welcomed as usual.

Thanks for looking!

Cool build there, like the subtleness of the flame color.

Really like this one, Jarkko - the subtle flame treatment is very effective and you did a great job improving the windscreen.

Very nicely done paint and engine detailing. Nothing to be ashamed of here.

That is super cool! What a beauty! And as others have said, the subtle flames are just beautiful.

I was trying to figure out where I had seen that color before! :) I love it!! Perfect color for that era. Those "muted" blues & greens were pretty common in the 40s-early 50s. The flames are a fantastic bonus, & very well done! All I can picture is the new '50 Olds in a similar scheme.....Hmmmm. Steve
