G' Day Folks,
Not a bad kit to build, even with the challenges!
Pretty much box stock, but with a difference, TPI and Rallye wheels, give her a nice look ;)

Another super tidy build Ray, getting about as clean as Luke :D
Sweetly smooth paint, and those exhaust pipes and wheels mean business B)
Nice one mate.

I'm going to have to get this kit. It seems to turn out well for everyone who builds it. Yours certainly looks good in red, Ray. What challenges did you encounter, and what did you have to do to overcome them?

Thanks guys, much appreciated B)
Monty, this car gave me hell in the final assembly, the interior platform and chassis has to be 'spot-on' when fitting to the body :blink:

That's a nice looking Impala Ray! I have an old build on the shelf that's the same color with the same wheels,but a white interior. Nice work on this one!
