- It's a 4dr!!

1:24 scale 1957 Chevy 4-door Hard Top

My only 4Dr in the collection!

Bought two of these cars off eBay. The seller called them pressings and got offended when I tried to correct him as these are plastic.

All I know is it’s a reproductions of an old (vintage) toy that I think might have come on a car-carrier made by Tonka.....maybe. There is no windshield or interior, it's just a roller.

Looks like the white walls are done, at least!

I also need to get the roof painted white, of course!

Stance and proportions don't look too bad.

The detailing isn’t bad and it’s the only 4dr hard top in my collection so I have to cut it some slack.

So this project has stalled since my painter backed out, but I may just tackle the roof myself. Or, may just try and take out all those parting lines and get someone that knows what they are doing to paint it read with a white roof.

My struggles of course are obvious, getting or modifying an interior to fit. But the bigger challenge to to figure out how to make the 'glass'.

Why did I buy two? Because I would like to make one for my buddy who has a REAL 1:1!
