G' Day Folks,

Around the time I finished the Revell '64 Impala, I had started this one. A much easier AMT kit, with a few added details to make it look like a Street Machine B)

Paint is Tamiya TS-30 Sliver Leaf, BMF and a set of Pegasus Hellas with 62 Impala caps for a different look B)

Cheers

Ray

Anne, quite simple, I use a toothpick! for the blue I use Revell #752 Clear Blue and for the red, Humbro; #1321 Cear Red. Tamiya X-24 Clear Yellow for the indicators. Testors do a reasonable 'turn signal Amber and Red as well

That's a really sharp looking Impala Ray! The colors and wheels really go very well together! The AMT '64s body looks so much better than the Revell version. Nice work!
