Great foil and interior work Niko. Those kit decals look really sharp, you've got me thinking about picking up one of these kits.

Thanx Tony !
Those decals, as well as the whole kit are really nice quality. This kit is absolutely worth buying and building because of the subject and the quality.

Here is a minor update. I sprayed paint and clear to the Dashboard. I hope I can add some details tomorrow to it. Also the interior should be assembled soon....

Well I finally got the Dashboard detailed. The decals are from the kit, and then I did some detail painting and black washing to make it look more realistic. It still needs of course a Steering Wheel and Steering Column, but also a Tachometer. I will get back to the body soon.

Niko..... that dash is beautiful my friend. I love every bit of detail you have put into it. it is clean and looks great!!

Thanks Kerry, Brett, Jim and Chris! All of the nice words are appreciated.
I got the interior pretty much done. I started by painting the Steering Wheel and steering column white. Then I Detail-painted the Steering wheel with silver and black and painted the Turn signal switch on the Steering Column too. Also I completed the Seat Belts. That joint in the middle is made from sheet styrene. Shifter is glued on, but I had a little problems with the decal on it. I still need to do some adjustments to get it fit. Then I just installed everything together and this is how it looks. Still I need to add Tachometer, but otherwise the interior is pretty much done.
And one more:

Niko... the control you have over the surfaces are stunning. The results are especially imprressive on the dashboard and the engine. I'm jealous!

Thanks Leo, Bernard and Rob! I really appreciate the kind words.
Revell has made excellent job on this kit. I have found no bigger fit issues so far, and parts are very nicely detailed. That makes builder's job much easier, and I'm having a lot of fun with this kit. Maybe that means that I need to get another one at some point. Or then I'll just buy the AMT '62 Bel Air Super Stocker as a donor kit for building Ronnie Sox's '63 Impala Z11 Super Stock.

I'm a bit late, but Thanks Mike and Kevin!
I thought that this build started so nicely that it would be a shame to leave it in box for a couple of more months. So I took it back on the bench a couple of days ago. I put some more Micro Sol on the decals and got them pretty nicely on place. Today it was time for a clear coat. Tomorrow I'll see how it looks and decide what I do. Maybe a light sanding and more clear, or then just leave it as is and polish the paint.

Fantastic detail work Niko....just stunning attention to detail.
Thanks for sharing your tips and build...especially the 409 power plant.
