Completed the Italian made Arena resin kit of the Chevrolet.   Did it stock without the Pan Americana rallye decals.

1953 Chevrolet Belair #1
1953 Chevrolet Belair #2
1953 Chevrolet Belair #3

This adds to the other 1953 Chevrolets,  stock Welly convertible with added white walls and BMF,   two door sedan and four door sedan conversions and a Durham Classics sedan delivery. 

1953 Chevrolets X3 #6
1953 Chevrolets X5 #1

Some kit construction photos.  One showing additional chassis detail added, less later fitted exhaust system.

Wonderful build John. The 53, 54 Chevies have always been favorites of mine.

Hey John,

Wonderful job and great color scheme . My first car was exactly like your build. I have never seen this kit before but would like to get one and do another copy like yours.

Thanks for posting, Chuck

@chazy-r  Search Ebay for Arena kits 1/43.   Currently this one is available plus the 1952 Chryslers,  a 1950 and 1954 Lincoln,  1954 Dodge Royal,  Cadillac,  Packard, Hudson, and other non American cars.   On the Chevy, to build stock you will have to create your own wheels and use white walls.  Note also, i added extra chassis details.
