Revell's 1955 Belair, in Tamiya Blue & French Blue. Chrome by BMF and those excellent chrome pens.
The usual wiring, and I went crazy and added choke heat tube & distributor vacuum line.
The cat hair is not a factory option, as far as I'm aware.
Since the pics were taken, I've decaled the whitewalls, almost banished the cat hair, and done some minor touchups.
I chose not to BMF the chrome mould running back from the headlights. I think it looks better without it.
This was one of the stalled builds that finally saw the workbench again.

Excellent choice of colors and beautiful application.  I really like the extra step you took on finishing the engine.
