AMT 1969 Buick Riviera


Recommended Posts

Mid 90's release of the 1/25 scale Buick Riviera painted in Tamiya TS-58 Light Pearl Blue and top coated with Testors Glosscote. The drivers side mirror is from an old Monogram GTO kit since this kit only contained mirrors for the custom build.

Wow! I'm not a fan of most pale blues, but that color on that car with that interior just works SO well! Well done, very well done!

Thanks Rusty. I agree not every color works on every car. I always liked the light blue metallic paints on late '60's and '70's era GM cars.

Nice clean build. If it was a solid, non-metallic paint. it's be pretty close to the color my 1/1 '69 was when I bought it. 

Wish the people doing the box art had got the front lights right though, seeing them painted amber is so wrong. 😔

Thanks Steve. And yes the amber lights are incorrect (and for that matter the side marker lights also)  but for some reason it's just something I always like to do.

wow, very nice build! Love the colour and the blackwashing of the wheels, very nice.

Thanks Gareth, blackwashing the wheels made a significant difference versus my first build of this kit when I didn't blackwash.
