Hi

 

I´d like to share some pics of my modified AMT ´72 Chevelle. This build was inspired by the Chevelle that was driven by the bad guys in the movie "Transit". I really like the look of this car. Great color, great stance, bad to the bone... B)

 

The cowl hood is scratchbuilt, the crude side window trim was rebuilt with sheet, the engine was upgraded with spare parts, a Nascar exhaust was added and a set of wheels was robbed from the parts box. There´s still some stuff in the engine compartment missing as I have some further plans for the badly molded front end. The missing parts will attached when everything else is done. Ok, here´s some pics:

The paintjob was done with tamiya semi gloss black from the spray can. It was a fun and simple build, hope you guys like it.

Critics and comments are welcome.

 

Cheers

Nice job on that semi-gloss. It's tough to get it that smooth and even. Great look for this body style.

Thanks again!

 

The paintjob was not difficult to do. The Tamiya spray cans are very good to work with and the results are pretty impressive. I have sprayed two coats of white primer and three coats of black over the body. Each layer was wet sanded completely smooth with micro mesh. The last coat was not sanded or polished, that´s the regular rattle can finish.

Your Chevelle has quite an evil look to it that I really like! Nice.

That is one sinister looking Chevelle Kevin! I normally don't like the oversized cowl hoods, but it suits this model perfect!
