Hello everybody!

 

Got this one finished yesterday evening and I'm very happy to the result. 

 

Here is wip topic http://www.modelcars...showtopic=70360

 

Some details of it: 

 

Starting point was AMT '62 Chevy Bel air and It was kind of parts car for my '62 Custom Impala. Engine is from my parts box and I put to it plug wires, fuel line, fuel pump (made from scratch), Hilborn fuel injection, heater hoses etc. Interior is mostly made from Bel air own parts but like steering wheel and shifter is things what I changed. Steering wheel is from AMT '62 Impala and Shifter is from my parts box. Interior floor is also flocked. Wheels and tires are from my parts box. 

 

Not much more to tell about it so here's some pics of it.

Nice. Are the valve covers really pink or just lighter shade of red? Either way cool build.

Thanks guys! :)

 

Matthew: Those valve covers are painted with same red paint that engine is so they just look like pink. ;)
