Great looking Impala, Ben. Which version did you use for this? I really like the firewall with out holes for the hinges going through the heater box.

 

I'm building 2 of these and have both the Revell versions; the Special edition and the SS California wheels version. Both have the hinges going through the fire wall. It's frustrating.

I know how much you like mirrors on a model....I didn't see the mirror in the first few  picture. My bad, but just haven fun

Thanks again guys, I appreciate the feedback!

Ryan, this is the Revell 2 in 1 kit special edition. It does actually go through the firewall but with black around those areas and drawing the attention away from the hinges with lots of detail...it doesn't look too bad. Just make sure everything behind those holes is black as well. I suppose you could fill the gaps through the firewall and fabricate some hinges of your own. I wouldn't be opposed to trying it.

Super clean build with great little details. Flawless as far as I can tell. Got any chassis pics Ben?

Very sharp looking Impala Ben! I like the wheels. But, I would go with nineteens up front or even all the way around. Twenty threes are just too big for fronts in my opinion. But, I'm a little old school. ;)

Beautiful paint work.  Can you give us more information on the "wet clear."  Who makes it?
