Chevy Pick Up in Gloss Wine Red
Tamiya's 1/48 scale F4U-1A Corsair is available online from Squadron for only USD$25.99!
This is the Revell 1/25 scale 1941 Chevy pick up (kit #RE857202) built pretty much straight out of the box just for the pure enjoyment of it.
The kit comes with parts to build a stock pick up or one with customized wheels and intake system. I chose the former.
Most of the kit components come together pretty easily as the model is well engineered although I did have some issues with the windshield, window visor, and some of the chrome parts.
The model was painted with Gunze #100 "Wine Red" and Gunze GX2 "Ueno Black". The Wine Red areas received multiple rounds of wet sanding with fine grit paper followed by buffing Tamiya buffing compound until I was satisfied with the finish.
This was a very enjoyable project. It involved nothing new technique-wise but I gained experience and most importantly, I had fun. This Wine Red 1941 Chevy is the new addition to my display cabinet and I’m quite satisfied.
Thanks for reading along.
