is an AMT Beverly Hillbillies
is not the old time beat up version, but a version you can
build of the kit, which was used in an episode where Jethro
takes Granny's truck and turns it into a Hot Rod. (and of
course, she is not happy about it either).
Barris built the original car(s).
kit is a difficult build, in as far as the hood area is
a bit tricky. The hood is made up of 5 separate pieces.
the time of the build, I could only find one good photo
of the car, and the original box art from the 1960's release
to go by for detailing and painting.
I think it is fairly close to the original car considering
all that trouble.
painted Testors Gloss Red, with Gloss Yellow on the seats.
Gloss black, silver, and tan for the tool boxes was also
don't see many people build the model up as this version,
so it's fun to have one to be unique. Except for the hood,
the rest of the kit builds up easily.
