The '51 really shows the loss of glamour after a world war and the distant war drums banging again when comparing it to the '41.

I have that Neo Chevy Woody and its really cool. Congrats David!!
Thanks, Keko, I suspected you might!

This will be next, although I would like it in another colourway to contrast with the 1941 Deluxe.

Chevrolet Skyline Deluxe 1952 - NEO

I also would like that Chevy in another color. Knowing Neo, very soon we'll have it.

Not that coherent a conversion (especially around the C-pillar), but a must-have for your collection and a really nicely made model.

Tom, I agree. The C pillar could have been made more slender, unless it was structural requirement.
However, I prefer the silver blue over the yellow version of this model and the price was right!

Agree, blue looks very fitting. And as a shooting brake aficionado this should be in your collection.

The colour does seem right for this car/model. Was the 1:1 a one-off, or if you had the means coukd you order one?

Martin, 20 were built. See review below for extras that could be had for the toffs.

I love the fact that it carries parts from the humble Renault 5 - musn’t let the Lord and Master know that!

That explains the awkward angle of the tailgate vs the C-pillar.

I think maybe the filler caps had to be re-sited from the top plane of the boot area didn't help.quote=Alfaholic post_id=354795 time=1514800307 user_id=21643]
