1/32 Lindberg 1952 Chevy Fastback
« on: September 18, 2016, 04:11:07 PM »
This was bought for my birthday last year by my son (in Australia).
He bought it for a reason - come on what was it?

Thanks Martin.

Thanks Mr Beesting, yes, 1952.
Assembly was straight forward, parts need some cleaning up required
The sub- assemblies are not glued, just test fitted at this stage.
Once again the question of scale raises its head.
The figure is 1/32, as is the car, I will endeavour to discover which, if any is correct.

Undercoated last night some painting and assembly today.
It was all undercoated grey and then white on the body as it is to be yellow.

As to scale, the man is over scale and the car under, so that's that then.

am I correct in saying that the chrome work on this model has to be painted on.....I didn`t see any chrome frames in the poly bag picture!

Yes, no chrome. so it will have to be paint as my bare metal chrome seems to have gone off, it will no longer come off its backing.
I shall be using some chrome paint I picked up, its called Plasti-Kote Projekt paint and is a fast dry enamel.
