So I started gathering up all my pictures for this build and planning the write up and realized it was getting fairly long so I’m going to break it into several installments. Here is the first one:
What we have here is a 1/34 scale Majorette 1957 Chevy diecast model. It has opening doors, simplified interior, and a rudimentary suspension:
Here is the box it came in, touting it had moving parts and suspension!
Note, body jewelry (emblems and chrome moldings) are included in the casting but not painted. Check out the over-the-top flame job!!!
The doors open to show an all read interior with seats, dashboard, and steering wheel.
You can also see the painted rear fin area to emulating the stainless steel insert.
Overall, I’d say not a bad casting. An eagle eyed reader may have spotted that the vent window should be part of the door. But, I’m sure this was done to simplify the casting and to strengthen the roof. Yes, I did touch on this in a previous article where I showed off the finished car along with 3 other sized ‘57s.
Very sparse detail on the chassis with just 4 screws holding the car together.
Here are all the other cars that were offered in this series:
Part 2 will be planning out the project.
