I was finished with what I wanted to get done on my focussed builds tonight, but I was in a contemplative sort of mood, so I made a coffee and stood in front of my stash cupboard wondering what sort of mischief I could get myself into. It didn't take long.







I'm not starting on these kits yet, just mulling over some ideas for a little display, perhaps a trio of cars owned by one person, identical colours, hired out for weddings etc.

They are packed away safely in their boxes now, back in the stash cupboard, while I put some more thought into what direction I might head with them.

As always, thoughts and suggestions very welcome.

Cheers, D

D, you are just a glutton for chrome? Love the lines of all three. as a child, I think one of neighbors had a brand new '59 Hardtop. I remember the gloss black and ocean of chrome.

Apparently so 😎

There is a resin wagon body and tub that was made by Star Models, now OOP I believe, that would be a really neat addition to this collection. I will keep an eye on the usual places to see if one pops up for sale by some remote chance.

D,
It's going to be another special themed build for sure.

A gorgeous trio Damian. Some of the best looking cars, of the 50's. The El Camino is the best looking pick up of all times.

If I was to build such a trio, I would build them as follows:

Convertible: Mint, stock, perfect for weddings.

Hardtop: A survivor(Not barn find) Used look, a bit rusty, and warn, but still drivable.

El Camino: Mild custom, low stance, reverse chrome wheels or baby moon hub cabs, both with white wall tires.

Here's one that I found at a local Friday night car meet recently.
