Very, very nice engine. Did you use Tamiya Smoke to bring out the details?

Thank you midnightprowlet the 57 instructions are very vague a lot of information on engine assembly is left out well the 55 and 56 Chevy engines fixed that . I primed the body and painted the chassis differential and front sispenion planing color combo on this build . I'm glad you liked the 56.

My wife and I were at Hobby Lobby tonight and I told her I was going to be in the "happy isle". I saw a 57 Bel Aire and thought of your kit. I would have grabbed it with the 40% coupon if I had the money.

You're really inspiring me to build another car.

Thank you M.C.  I still do my planes in stuff I have two that I'm masking . The trouble is the shine it's very addictive some times when I gloss coat planes for decals it pains me to spray clear flat over it . Its the mind set oh well ! It's a change . You should get this kit I'm really liking the 57 bel air .
