1951 Bel Air (birthday present for my daughter)

Recommended Posts

Here's something I recently finished for our 16 year old daughter. It's Round 2's reissue of the AMT 1951 Bel Air. She chose the colours of both the exterior and interior. I haven't built a car model in a long time (not counting the 1989 Batmobile I recently built). It's quite a departure from my usual fare...

The main body was done with Tamiya spray cans. It was also the first time I tried Bare-Metal Foil. Man, am I sold on that stuff! 

 I have a new appreciation for model car builders. I lost track of how many times I had to polish the body. It's still not perfect! But... my daughter is happy with how it turned out! And she also like the case I bought for it!

Very nicely done.:thumbsup:  Brings back some memories.  My grandmother had a '52 that same

color that I learned how to drive in.
