Just getting started but I'm excited about this build. I'm actually combining parts from the Street fighter kit and a diecast model. Plus the big block and other bits from a Monogram '70 Chevelle.

Hi Geno,
Looks like it's going to be a fun build. Glad to see you're getting back to modelling, and also happy to see you're going to use whatever materials are available to make an interesting model.

Here's the dash. I didn't like the plain flat dash with just the tach, so I cut out an opening and grafted the panel in from a '59 Chevy dash. it's just roughed in right now but it'll get there. :)

The Revell 1960 Impala is a great donor for this. I'm doing the same project only with a Jimmy Flintstone resin body.
