60 Chevy Sedan Delivery


Recommended Posts

Here is a new project from an old project. A number of years ago I started building a 60 Chevy Sedan Delivery using a Revell Lowrider kit mated with a Jimmy Flintstone resin body. I wasn't happy with where the paint was going so I banished the build back to the box and it's been there for about the past 10 years. Well, inspiration has brought me back to it with a new vision on the paint and graphics and I'm really happy with where this is now going. 

 

The new vision has me using some homemade graphics that I made on my computer with a bit of humor thrown in. The paint is Duplicolor white with the added graphics and cleared with Decoart Triple Thick clear which eliminates yellowing over time and with this much white that is definitely needed. I also finished the exhaust with dumps coming out just in front of the rear tires.

I still have to redo the interior and finish the engine.

 

Here is what the first paint job looked like years ago.

Now what it looks like.

Thanks guys.

Pretty much got the interior buttoned up. It's hard to see in the pics. but the off white color for the upholstery is actually texture paint. I didn't go too overboard with interior detail because once the body is in place not much of it will be visible.

Added a small touch to the interior even though it won't be seen all that well. Added some markings on the seats to simulate embroidery and a Fedup T-shirt draped over the seat.
