Didn't realise the old Lindberg kits scrubbed up so well or did you have to put a lot of extra work in?

Very nice job, Bruce. Some of the Linberg kits that weren't repops of old models were quite well done.

Looks good. I've always liked the 61 Chevy.

That was pretty much the basic kit and I thought it was well done. This was a commision build for an old High Sckool buddy of his 1:1 car back in the day.

Very nice looking. As others said, very clean build. I like the white exterior and the red interior. Striking combination!

That's a sweet '61. And timely too, as one is on my bench. It's not a bad kit, the interior & engine
aren't as crisp as modern stuff, but it builds up OK thus far.

I wouldn't avoid it- as Bruce has demonstrated it can build up very well.

Cheers,

Chris

Yep, just throw some aftermarket Cragars and wide ovals on and it's ready to roll.

Hi Bruce,

So very sorry for missing this Sir, she looks great, I love the colour combination too, have you used a pearl white or standard white, plus the wheels look fantastic...
