Another "2014 Builds" thread.

In all my years of building, and reading/posting on forums, I have never done an end-of-year recap.  This year, I got off my butt and completed several projects that sat unfinished in my workshop.  So, here's my Class of 2014:

Revell 1962 Chevrolet Impala

Finished this build last weekend, and while it's not perfect, I'm certainly proud of it.  The photos make it look much more blue than it is (true color is much more aqua, a Duplicolor color that escapes me).  The exhaust is half-kit, half-aluminum.  There were supposed to be trim pieces on the tops of the front fenders, but I broke one while removing it from the sprue, so bits of strip styrene and chrome silver paint take their place.  The side-view mirror face went missing, so was replaced with the "pupil" of a googly eye.  And I know it's missing an air filter, the carburetors actually have some decent detail that I didn't want to hide lol.

 

On with the pics!
