'70 Impala SS 454

G' Day Folks,

Decided to have a bit of fun with this kit, it's not bad for an AMT.

There was no way I was going to build it like the box art suggested, so I turned it into an 'unmarked' Police Cruiser.... ;) 

Although not accurate, but I think it captures the era in my mind....

Testors Sable Brown Metallic over a Silver base coat and polished using Tamiya finishing compounds, Tamiya USAF Tan for the interior.

All the extras like weapons etc came from my spares box except for the Cop and flat top bubblegum light which are from PoliceCarModels :) 

Engine received a bit of detailing which includes a Dominator carb so he can catch the bad guys :lol: !

Cheers n Beers

G' Day Folks,

Finally off the bench this one, built as part of another forums CB

AMT kit, gone for the mild custom look, using Tamiya TS-89 Pearl Blue over a Testors Sterling Silver base coat.

No clear coat, just polished using Tamiya finishing compounds.

Shaved the door handles, trunk hinges off and cut the pillars off to give it a hardtop look.

A basic interior in order to match and highlight the overall look.

The engine is a flathead with small blower resin kit from 'The Parts Box'.

Wheels are Pegasus 

Cheers and thanks for looking

Ray

Deep dish Rallye Rims

23 October 2014 - 03:10 AM

G'day folks, I remember seeing a build (Camino from memory) which had a set of deep dish style Rallye rims, but I can't remember the name of the brand?!
Can anyone help?
Cheers
Ray.

Finally something off the bench!

Simple kit, low parts count making a fun build in between major projects.

Tamiya AS-27 Gunship Grey, several coats no clear used, was going for "the look".... ;)

A few engine details, lowered suspension, originally I had planned to used another set of deep dish steel rims with a lighter shade of grey, but I found some rims that were already painted, so I mounted them on a set of AMT Round 2 whitewalls which gave it a nostalgic look...something that granpa would go to church in :D !

I kinda like how it turned out ;)

Cheers

Ray
