I haven't finished anything in years, but the 2012 Revell-Gearz contest was the inspiration I needed, I guess. Just got it in at about 7:00 PM.

I've had the opportunity to check out a chopped 1:1 '70 Chevelle and I'm here to tell you that it isn't nearly as straightforward as a chop on most other cars. One look at the sail panel tells me that this isn't the sort of thing for the faint of heart. Then to get it all to line up so that the flush-fit windshield can actually fit flush... Man, this model isn't just a home run, it's a grand slam! As the good doctor requested, PLEASE share more of your work with us.
