I'm interested in this one too, since its the current model that I have on the bench.

The "other magazine" whose name shall not be uttered had a couple of good articles
On the '62 Belair, October '94 and Pat Covert did a three part series in April thru June '95
Building a custom Bubble Top called Bubbles.

Oops I was wrong on the Pat Covert article issues, issues 95 thru 97, February, April, June '95. (Come to think of it I might have issues myself!)

This is a pic of a 409 from either the '60 or '61 Chevy kit that I put in a '34 Ford Street Rod a couple of years ago.  Hope this helps.

I've posted this one elsewhere, recently, but here's my interpretation of that great kit:

Just to clarify, do you want pictures of the 409 engine, or pictures of the built '62 Bel Air bubble top?  I can't provide photos, but I've built one of the stock '62, and one of the Hayden Proffitt super stocker, and both came out to my satisfaction...one of AMT's better creations.

Here's one I did a few months ago. Not my best work. The paint was a very old spray can, and came out sort of lumpy, but I was tired of messing with it, so I left it alone.

well i originally wanted pictures of the model as a whole, built. But the recent engine pics have provided some reference for me to go off by as well. Either way , is fine ;)

It  still looks nice and I actually want to do a red with the rims or hubcaps outlined in red like you have done with the blue. How did you achieve that if you do not mind me asking? Im sure I can find a way, but If there are shortcuts, that would be nice. I have never done that.

If you build it the way you intend, you might want to check out the hub caps in the Revell '62 Impala.  They seem to be smaller, and a better scale fit on the AMT wheels than the ones that come with the AMT kit.

I really like the stock look of these though. Specially in gloss red.

I haven't built the Bel Air kit yet, but I have built some W-Blocks and have some in progress...

 

This one is from Revell '62 Impala kit.

This is AMT Engine, but I don't know where it is from.

I just painted the rims blue. On models with the rims and wheel covers molded in one piece, I spray some body color paint in a bottle cap or pudding cup and use a small brush to paint the outer part of the rim. It's pretty easy.
