Medium Format Chevy

Look – a photo of a tail fin. On a 1957 Chevrolet. Or at least on a plastic model of one. That I built in high school. In a poorly ventilated area. As you’ve probably guessed I was very popular with the ladies (and struggle with complete sentences).

Random friend: What are you doing this weekend, Robert?

Me: Oh, you know… I’m painting a tiny distributor cap. In a poorly ventilated area.

Random friend: *blank stare*

Just in case you were wondering this model broke in a recent move. Bummer, right?

You: *blank stare?*

    • Thank you very much, Dishy…
      This one turned out better than expected considering there was some assembly required. πŸ™‚

    • BLAST! I thought I had shake your tail feather on my i-pod and I was totally going to rip off the lyrics…

      I need two pairs…
      So I can get to stompin’ in my air force ones…
      (does any Nelly song work here?!) πŸ™‚

  1. You did a good job with the depth of field as it doesn’t look like a model at all.

    I built those models too! Is this a 1/24 Revel model, or one of the bigger 1/16 ones?

    • Thanks very much, Binky – I gave it a shot, anyway!

      Most of mine were smaller, but this was a 1/16 model I got one Christmas… it was pretty cool! πŸ™‚

    • I’m more of a dork than a nerd. Seriously, dude.
      Thank you, though, Annabelle – I think. πŸ™‚
      Me too. 😦

  2. Yes I used to build models too, although I never built a 1957 Chevrolet, it was mainly aeroplanes and tanks with the odd ship thrown in for good measure…

    How rude of me not to mention your photograph, indeed I like your wicked portrayal of this fine motor vehicle my friend… Have a great day now Spilledinkguy πŸ™‚


    • I built a few planes, too… mostly WWII era stuff… and a few other classic cars.
      I think I put together a ship once, but I didn’t have as many of those… not sure why that is, really.
      Thank you very much for your kind comment, sir – I hope you have a wonderful day as well!
