1960 Chrysler Imperial, 12/13, Outdoor Shots Added.

I'm pretty sure that I had a build thread for this kit here, but it's been a while since I updated it, so I'm not sure how far back it is, but it's finished now, so I decided to start a new one.

Not much to say.

Just an original AMT kit built pretty much box stock except for a few added embellishments.

Looks great, Steve! Those old boats really did look Imperial - suited for a King! Nice work! Cool Thumbs Up

If you cannot have a good time, what kinda time can you have? JR

Next on the bench:  Another 1970 Hemi 'Cuda, 1958 Chevy Impala, 1987 Buick GNX, 1950 Chevy Pick-up, Indy Reynard, 1965 Corvette, probably not in this order.

Wow, that's beautiful. How did you do the roof trim?

Beautifully done Steve. You really did it justice! The metal foil, the fit of the hood, the color choice, really nice!

Nice to see you back posting Steve.

I love this example and the color and all the great pics.

I have a '59, '60 and '61 in my stash waiting for some love.

Even back in the day they made great kits.

WellGeez !

   Didya have to do so good ? Now I am definitely going to have to find the one with Free Standing headlights so I can do a more formal version .When you look at the cars from back then , they had a lot of wasted space on them .That's why when everyone started building Euro-Cars they looked , and do look so small .

 The fenders alone comprise a third of todays cars .Darned nice looking though ! Just think You could take the rear wheel off and wait out a rainstorm in the cave that was created .Loved them " Big Irons "
