I built this a few years ago and won a couple of trophies with it. It turned out pretty good for my first real attempt at weathering a model. I used Wally World spray paint and Rustall for the finish. Any tips are welcome.

Another nice build. One complaint, your plug wires are way too thick, thick as your heater hoses. Nice weathering.

This was my first time adding plug wires to one of my models. I didnt think about the scale until It was sitting on the display table next to all the other builds. Thanks for the tip midnightprowler. That is what makes us better builders.

Looks great, I really must build one of these big Chevies. As said above, very nice weathering and finish. For plug leads, I use 0.3mm black wire from a hobby store (works out about 1/4" in 1/25 scale).
