I feel that we are well overdue for another Chevy build log, so here we go
One of my local Australian Facebook Scale Modeling Groups has just started another themed Group build, once again sponsored by my friend Scott Taylor at SMS Paints. This time around the theme is “50 Shades of Grey.” Basically any subject, any scale, it just has to be a plastic kit and painted grey.
My builds for the previous two SMS-sponsored Group Builds were the '51 Chevy Bel Air Hardtop and Ragtop, so it made sense to complete the trio with the Fleetline for this one.
I found a really classy-looking dark Blue-Grey Fleetline for reference.
Paint will be SMS (of course) PL151 Nobel’s Tarmac which I have just used on the tractors and Tilly for my Short Stirling project.
I will be cracking open the box and getting started over the next couple of nights, so stay tuned for progress reports. This Group Build finishes on September 4, so I will need to do some juggling of projects to get it done.
Here is a teaser with the Fleetline body and the other 2 builds.
