Goldvarg '61 Comet in Green Frost (?)

Beautifully done model of a very interesting car, and very glad to add it to my collection:

20220504 220653

But "Green Frost" it isn't. To my eye, and to my wife's, it's a sky blue with a hint of turquoise.

Here's the color chart from the '61 Comet brochure:

20220504 220536

"Green Frost" is D (I suppose the colors may have faded somewhat after 60 years).

In any case, I love it!

I just ordered this one.  Whatever name the colour is or should be (turquoise mist?) I love the shade done on this car.

Yes! And it looks great next to NEO's '60 Valiant:

It is a beautiful model for sure, I labeled mine as Turquoise Mist, it is definitely not Green Frost. Goldvarg's website does show another one that is labeled Turquoise. It shows the prototype with full wheel covers. Maybe another option will come soon.

Well I did something I don't usually do, but I like this Comet so much that I just ordered the Sheffield Gray one too!

I think seeing the pictures of it in the ads on this forum is what did it!

I have the turquoise mist one on order and when it arrives I think I'll convert this custom one I made decades ago from a combination of two diecast Trax models, into a two door sedan.

John, take a few pictures of the process and post your results.  Inquiring minds want to know!

I sure hope Sergio does a 2dr. station wagon version of this car.

Well,  not a 2 door wagon but a 4 door 1960, a replica of a family car from 1960 to 1966.
