Here’s my build of the recent Craftsman Plus release of the ‘63 Nova wagon. I picked this kit up cheap from Ollie’s and figured it would be a quick build to practice bare metal foil on. My last and only other car I’ve foiled was a ‘57 Chevy… and while this Nova turned out well, I still don’t enjoy foiling. 😅 If you’re trying foiling out for the first time, this is a great kit for it because the trim details are super crisp and it’s easy to cut the foil cleanly. The body is painted Tamiya TS45 Pearl White over grey primer and the interior is Rustoleum Apple Red. The pearl white looks more silvery/dove grey in person over that grey primer than a pearl white but I think it looks good with the red interior.IMG_1670.jpeg.46281309811b54fd80b8e8baf0a07a21.jpegIMG_1671.thumb.jpeg.1a623899b050d7300a5315b931c5a4c4.jpegIMG_1684.jpeg.20c9916959967f7ee24c2b852b718ef0.jpegIMG_1683.jpeg.5f34af5e9e71ad985df23add841d09b8.jpegIMG_1682.jpeg.e3bfdc469b71a45df783a8c7b2d03d5e.jpegIMG_1681.jpeg.7df237d7ce02bf1e40e86741facc6c69.jpegIMG_1679.jpeg.ff82870122428e8b62e9f9eefcdf5c26.jpegIMG_1676.jpeg.9a8ce3f45939f80e669bccca97f64abc.jpegIMG_1685.jpeg.090990518d07d16325943b1d765f5424.jpegIMG_1688.jpeg.d3fcd44ad3d55248d3b0641655dfeecb.jpegIMG_1689.jpeg.d20d7a8f2b659c7d804448a895024d85.jpegThe roof on that ‘57 is the same TS45 pearl white, but over white primer.

Very nice! A perfect color combination. That is an awesome kit for a curbside (of course I added an engine in mine)! I too, was blown away by how crisp the molding and trim were, and couldn't figure out why they included decals for everything.

Great looking nova. Like you, foiling is not my favorite part but, obviously you master it . I like the sober look of Novas, they well represent the simple, affordable and reliable design of that era. Brings back lots of second grade school memories.
