Here is my last build, and the first one for this year, a 77 Monte Carlo from Revell, mostly Box Stock except for the wheels, which are from a 78 Camaro, and the seat belt from MCG. I've also take some pics with a 79 model to see the difference of size between those two generations !!

Hope you'll like it :

A lot of people overlook the beauty of this year model. And what can be done with that kit!

Great job. It does build into a nice curbside representation! B)

Thank you guys, unfortunatly the sky wasn't that nice when I took the pics so the paint doesn't look as shiny as it is in reality :)

Gorgeous job on this. Light blue is a nice color for these.

Always love it when somebody takes a snap together kit and makes it look better than a lot of the full-detail kits out there.

You should see the sky here - or rather, you can't. I thought it looked like you live in some sort of paradise.

Great model.  Those Monte Carlos were very popular and yet you never see them anymore.  Excellent job on the interior.

Beautiful job! From the comparison shots, I think one model or the other is slightly out of scale. The Monte Carlo's overall length shrank from 213.3 inches to 200.4 inches in the 1978 downsizing--considerably more than these shots suggest. It also lost 812 pounds!
