Beautiful job reproducing a true 57 along with the correct color. Wasn't a fan of those greens shades when the cars were new and I have to say that it hasn't grown on me. BUT a fabulous job.

Great job on a classic model. I like the green color, and it is very typical of that era.

As stated before, a fine job.  I will add I wish inside of hood had insulation painted and ejection pin circles removed.  All else is beautifully and thoughtfully done.  Thanx again.

Thanks guys, including criticism. I more than anyone know my builds are flawed.

Don't know how I missed this one. Great choice of color, perfect for the late 50s. Excellent application too. Overall great job.

What they said! My first thought was 'why has a '57 got an alternator?' Then I realised it was a
supercharger.

Cool looking build, and a unique colour choice. Very nice.

Thanks. Yes, you are seeing the supercharger. The generator is on the lower right.

I missed this too somehow.

I like the colour, makes it look quite the period vehicle.

I do agree that the inside of the bonnet (hood) would look finished off nicely with some insulation/dampening or something ..

Apart from that ... Stunning looking build.
