Great work on the boat, I have the same one just sitting and waiting for me to bundle it with something. Keep posting your work, it inspires us to finish or start ours...lol

By far one of my favorite combo builds. So clean with tons of style and beautiful color combo. I deffinatly have to build something like this one day. Any photos of either motor compartment and underside or maybe a build page? Real nice work, great build

Man, that is just too cool!
I really like the clean look of the boat with the engine hidden, just as smooth as the Impala.

Thank you very much for kind of words!
I am pleased, to inspire you, to build your own boat. Pleasure for me. It was a hard work till i get my goal and make the paintjob. But, if i read your comments, i know, i did it right. Your words are the payment for me - thank you very much for this.

I have no engine placed in the back, the trunklid is glued. I think, in real life, there will be a stock engine that gets his air to breath thru the "hole" left and right near the seat.

Jason, i will search for some pics from the progress and will make one from the underside. So stay tuned ;)

I don't know how I missed this the first time around, but great idea and execution, Dominik.

Thanks Dominik, that would be great. I used to have a kit when I was a kid that had a chevy step side pickup with a race boat on the back, " Revell Mach 1 formula one Racing" and never finished it. After seeing this build I've been looking for different kits with boats and came across one that has a chevy truck with a hemi-hydro boat on the back and I would really like to get that kit and hopefully finish it this time. What kit did you build yours off of? Again, great looking build.

Beautiful, I love the '60 Chevy and the boat just puts it over the top. Super Cool build. May I make a suggestion? Maybe, just maybe add some lights or decals on the back of the boat to mimic the tail lights on the back of the car. Just throwing it out as a thought. It's bad a$$ either way. B)  :D
