Post by allan on Mon 19 Aug 2013, 7:51 pm

This is a resin 41 chevy panel from RMR resin in the USA. Going to be using the 39 chevy coupe for parts to build it one can also use the 39 chevy wagon rod to build it.

No have not even thought about paint, mostly a metallic colour or two tone, just found out that I can not use the coupe engine as it has supercharger on it and it wont fit under the close bonnet so I am looking for engine in my parts, Rolling Eyes  found a few flatheads engines Laughing

Thinking on a blue for it got three Tamiya colours TS-50 Mica Blue, TS-89 Pearl Blue, TS-51 Racing Blue, may go with a two tone with white top & one of the blues.

How about a white base and then stripes using all 3 blues.
Start horizontal and the curve up and over the roof.
Leave 1mm of white between the stripes.

There has been a twist to this one, When I bought this one Silverfox really liked it too and would always ask me when I was going to build it and don't bugger it. One day I gave it to him as I knew it was going to be a problem for me to build it and now its done and but you will have to wait for the old Silverfox  to post photos of it.
