I finished this up today. Minus a side mirror cause I broke it. But i'll find a replacement. I wanted a 70's street strip car. And one that was kind of a different color. Here is the build thread http://www.modelcars...5&st=0&p=938169

 

For a quick summary,

Revell 69 Nova SS

350 with Accel Ignition, tunnel ram

Paint: Rustoleum Dark Bronze

Int: Krylon Saddle Tan with tan flocking

Nice job. Did you pose it with the front wheels off the ground? Are you putting a hood on it?

Very nice! Love the color. What kit are the traction bars from? I ask because I am planning to build one very similar for a friend that used to have one back in the early 80's. His was a '69 SS as well and had yellow traction bars just like your build.

Thanks for all the compliments! But is there anything that nobody likes or would change?

Yeah, a spot in one of my cases for it!  :P  Perhaps a little blackwash to the wheels, just to give a little depth, but I really think it's perfect!

Very nice build, I love the color choice and combination. They go together perfectly. Had no idea Rustoleum had that color
