This will be one of the vehicles on the Ruth's Diner diorama.



I just started this yesterday.



The car will be two-tone.  I think this will make you happy Al.





More in the next day or so.

An interesting colour combo to be sure. Looking forward to seeing this one develop.

Here is the final color and stance.



The body has been lowered roughly two scale inches all the way around.  The pink portion is nail polish and will be highly polished.  The dark portion is Tamiya XF-84, Dark Iron and will be left matt. Hoping to get the interior tomorrow.

The matt iron is a really cool choice, John.

I built this one a few years ago Bro and IIRC it goes together without problems.

Love the pink and I'm glad you decided to do the bonnet pink too.

However I think the light grey'pale blue wings worked better. At least for me.

Al, pink and charcoal was a very popular combination in the late 50s. That's why I went with this. As I recall you could get this combo on the 55 Chevy Bel Air.

The 37 Sedan is finished with the exception of installation of the mirrors, door handles and rear lights.  This car is meant to go on the Ruth's Diner diorama so it was built as a curbside model.  









This will be the last entry on this vehicle.  Any other information will appear on the Ruth's Diner diorama thread.  I'm hwaded for Phoenix, AZ this coming week to participate in the Cactus Classic on 4/14. When I return I plan to get going again on Ruth's.  It has been hanging around for far, far too long.

Very nice! The colour combo is fantastic, if weird, and really makes this one stand out.

I like the colour combo John, it's going to look great parked out front of Ruth's.
