´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!

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
