Monogram 1939 Chevy Taxi Model Kit

Revell-Monogram 1939 Chevy Sedan Delivery


monogram 1939 Chevy model kits


This is a Taxi I made from a Monogram 1939 Chevy Panel. I added the wheels and tires, some plain janes with mini-moon hubcaps. I scratchbuilt the taxi sign on the roof.

I used rub on letters and various decals from my decal stash box for the graphics. The rear side panels in the body I cut out and added clear windows. Inside I put a bench seat.

The paint is Testors Yellow and Red, with a coat of dull coat. I wanted a used, faded look to the paint. On this kit, the back door also opens. (but I glued it shut).

The kit has been re-released several times over the years, most recently as a nice lowrider version with graphic decals and gold wheels. But it makes a great early era car and reminds you of the old Chicago gangster movies.

Remember, this is a panel truck, here I opened up the sides, but it would also make a great bread or milk delivery vehicle with the panels left in.

My inspiration for this kit was a similar model built in a model magazine. (maybe an old Scale Auto?)
