1955 Chevy Bel Air Rat Rod

Recommended Posts

Greetings everyone! It's been a long since I've been sharing any new models, so here I am with my ratty Bel Air finished in the end of 2016.

I took a Monogram 1/25 Bel Air hardtop kit and build it mostly straight out of box, except the wheels and the exhaust pipes. Also some wiring and plumbing was daone on the engine and chassis both.

I found this kit very nice, it didn't took a lot of sanding and a little amount of putty was used.

All the chrome parts were washed in oven cleanear and re-chromed with gloss black and than chrome paints.

For sure, I applied some slight weathering. All except the mud stains done with water based acrylic paints using an old brush and cotton swabs. Mud is an enamell effect splashed onto model with a stiff brush.

Actually, I had no real car prototype, I just created this one as what it may look like if I had a real one.
