1956 Pontiac Club de Mer
I built the old Revell kit with just a slight deviation from box stock. I used a different set of wheels and tires from the parts box. I wanted something wider and lower profile but also subtly different yet somewhat similar to the stock kit wheels. I used '97 Corvette wheels turned backwards and the inserts are from a '74 Cougar. To me they just looked correct even if they were from a totally different kit. The color is Testors' Silver-Blue and the interior is done in red-oxide primer with most interior chrome done with a Molotow chrome marker pen. It only took a week or two to build and it's a nice addition to my collection. This completion makes eight models finished so far during 2017.
