1947 Chevrolet Fleetline Sedan Delivery

Built from the Galaxie Limited kit. Really a great kit, I don't know why you don't see many built up.

I had originally started this build because I wanted a truck for a very special project, but then I realized that a Pickup would be better suited.
So it sat.
Then, a whole series of threads on the Hobby Heaven message board popped up about the Galaxie Chevys and how you never see them built. So I pulled it out and started working on the engine.
But, I lost intrest, and...It sat.
Then, Jairus Watson posted on the Model Cars Magazine message board that Galaxie wants to see some builds to possibly appear in future magazine ads.
So, I pulled it out, with the yellow painted on the body, and the engine half assembled.
I then finished it, in 2 days!

And lo and behold, it is one of my best ones ever. It came out better then I could possibly have imagined.
It is also the 200th model I have ever built. All since November 1999!
The paint is MML Phoenician Yellow and Bright Platinum Metallic, under a coat of MML clear. (MML=Model Master Lacquer)
The wheel detail is one of my favorite parts of the build. The wheels are the same gray as the body, but they were not clearcoated, and the Chevrolet and designs on the wheels were painted Guards Red and the excess wiped off. It came out exactly as I hoped it would, and to me that is the finishing touch, that really sets it off looking fine. It was also the last thing I did on the build :)
