perhaps, you remember at my 60' Impala, that i showed you time ago.
While i am searching the net, i found a manufactur, who builds unique boats, that looks like the towing vehikle. For example i saw a 59' Impala and a 57' Bel Air.
While i saw this, my brain get a "klick" to do it the same way.
So..i grab the Hemi Hydro (Revell #H-1312) from the shelf and a 60' Impala out of my trash. Cut the Impalabody at the B-pillar and bashed both together. Dashboard and "trunklid" is scratchbuilt. Much sanding and putty needed, a lot of nerves and gray hear lost. dont know, how often i took filler to check the work. dont know, how often i sanded it.
The easier part was to to the same paintjob like the Impala. Sure, that the trailer became taillights and a working winch.
here is the result.
1960er Impala Custom mit Custom Hemi Hydro
Some pictures from both together:
Note to the Impala. The hitch is inserted, not glued. Perhaps, the boat gets another towing vehicle.
