Default My '56 210 model replica...sort of

I recently found a model kit for a '56 Delray 2-door on eBay and decided to buy it and build it to resemble my '56 210 4-door.

First time ever to build a model so don't be too hard on me! I think it turned out pretty well...I definitely learned what NOT to do on building models...and tested my patience pretty good too! Lol

My real car:



The model project car:








Paint was a challenge. I learned "it's all in the prep" to get a good finish. Kids helped me some...overall it was fun!

Pretty awesome model..I'm sure it wasn't easy to match that metallic paint you've got
