One bump for the sake of my client.

Has anyone cast some non-SS parts for the AMT 70 Chevelle?

Are you talking 1/25?

 

At a flea market not long ago, I bought a slightly distressed diecast '70 Chevelle. It doesn't have the SS on grille or rear bumper. I believe it's a Classic Metal Works kit, on which these things were handled as decals, and whoever built it didn't apply the decals. The parts MIGHT fit the AMT kit if that's what you're building. I can check and see if they'll fit, if you're interested. If they do, maybe we can work out some kind of deal.

 

Don't forget you'll need a non-cowl induction hood, too. Can't help you with that.

Maybe you could start with Bandit Resins' '71 Chevelle grille?:

Casey, thanks for merging the threads. I'd forgotten I'd asked this before.

Yes, 1/25. I'd be very interested in those parts if they fit the AMT kit, Snake.

 

Fortunately the client has added a cowl hood.

Unfortunately, I have the non-SS bumpers/grill to deal with. I'm thinking about just sanding down the rear bumper and try to rechrome with some BMF.

Jantrix, I found I took some pics of that diecast when I first bought it. Shoot me an email and I'll send them to you--looking at it, I'm not sure these parts would work any better than the kit parts but you can take a look and see what you think.
