This looks like a real nice model. I hope Buz reissues it some day. Thanks for your comments.

@d-m-holcombe Agree, do NOT like sun visors. Ruins the looks of any car that they are on.

Renato: your picture above of the 1958 and 1957 Chevs really highlights the problems with the Brooklin 1957 Chev. Firstly, the tires on the '57 Chev are oversized for the model making the car sit to high. The trunk in relation to the hood length is too short.I passed on this model for those reasons.The Brooklin model is however a great caricature of a '57 Chev.By the way, your 1958 Chev looks perfect and is how the '57 should have been proportioned.

Many thanx Ken,I did't aware about those defect that You mention.Nevertheless I find the model pretty despite the imperfections and Chevrolet Belair  4 door only is available from Brooklin for now,Trax did it but are very scarcely .

Buz already reissued them. I do not remember when and what color has been offered however? I got mine from him in White over Red.

On the model cars i have some difficulties as well but on a few woodies with the sun visor, i can live with that. I find the looks not so bad on the CNQ 1947 Chevrolet Fleetmaster or the MCUSA 1947 Ford woody. I don't have these models but they looks great with or without sun visors.
