1957 Chevy "Spirt of '57"

This is the Model King re-issue of the old MPC kit, and it's still a real pain to get it looking good. I had a severely warped chassis in mine, so I had to scratch-build a new chassis from the firewall back. Lots of fit issues, but those killer decals are still there! I painted mine House Of Kolors Oriental Blue over Dupli-Color Candy Silver, added foil and Molotow Liquid Chrome markers, and a Fatkidd Hobby Products pre-wired distributor, along with a resin coil and MSD style ignition box to the firewall. The firewall has a engine-turned decal from PRP Scale Decals. Contact Juan F. Sierra on Facebook if you want some of 'em for yourself!
