Hello folks, this is my first finished build I post on this forum. A '57 Chevy built from Monogram kit. It's finished in 2011, I could do better now. Anyway I still like it.

First I planned to build it Box Stock with no modifications, but as usual, I had to do some detailing for the engine and chassis. Paint is Revell Enamel sprayed through Airbrush and it has no clear coat or polishing- it is only waxed. Engine is 283 SBC from the kit with Fuel Injection system. To the engine bay I changed the battery which is more realistic than the one what came with the kit and added Brake Master Cylinder simply because the kit didn't have one. Interior is just red and white, chassis is pretty basic too with jacked up rear end.

Let me know what you think.

Thanks guys!
The paint job turned out very nice, too. Those Enamel colors work really well through Airbrush, except the clear coat which has caused me problems...That's why I didn't clear this one.
Thanx again. ;)
