This is another one of my older builds, but one of my favorites. I know some of you guys have seen these before, and I will be posting up new ones as I get them done.
This one is painted with House of Kolor paints, lowered stance, Corvette Engine, modified interior and parts box wheels and tires.

That was the Team Sharks Realm Camaro that was on my bench at the time. It now resides at Bucks house and there is a post on it here. Honestly, I didn't even notice it when I posted this pic.

I have a soft spot for a 55. What you've done is very pleasing to the eye.

This was always one of my favourites of your Max. The colours work so well together.

Thanks guys!
Yes, I added the windshield after these pics were taken. The one that came in the kit was broken so I had to wait for a replacement to come from Revell.. It took about 6 weeks to arrive.

I think if I could have a 1 / 1 scale drop top 55 any way I wanted it, it would be just like this one.
