Hey guys, as you can see I moved my build from the kit reviews to here. Thanks for looking!
All right, so here's my '62 impala build. I'm still touching up the paint, but I like we're it's going. Here's a pic of the body and the motor so far. Wait till you see the headers.

The area where the cylinder heads would be is orange, not red.
Thanks ,

Intake should be orange, and you missed sanding the mold lines by the c pillares.  Are you going to clear it?  What colors did you use?  May I suggest better lighting for pics as well.  Nice start otherwise.  Like the 2 tone.

I'm gonna leave the manifold black for color assortment, and I'm not gonna clear the body because I want the white to be flat, instead of glossy and the blue testers is shiny enough for me.
I keep updated.
Thanks,
Newbs99

Hey Guys,
Sorry it has been so long. Just applied my first decals. Never done it before. I know that sounds shocking, but I've just always worked my way around them. It feels as if I have opened a new page to modeling. Thanks, and expect more too come soon.

Sorry it's been so long and I couldn't get a single picture of the motor alone. Anyway, here is where I am in this build.
Here is the bottom of the chassis with the exhaust and my first attempt at rust.(Let me know if you want to know how I did it)

With this model I am going to keep the whole interior simple.
Anyway, thanks for hanging with me.

Thanks of any input,

Nice work.  Some folks like the contrasted frame vs. components but I like the single color (other than the exhaust and suspension components as you have).

So, I've gotten most of the interior completed along with finishing the chassis. Here is where I am...

What really got me was how much the interior door panels lean in to fit with the dash and rear seat.
Anyway, I should wrap it up today.

Real nice progress. I would paint the brake,clutch and gas pedal black. I myself paint my gas tanks silver or leave them black. nice work...

Nice job, but it appears you have the shifter sideways, should be facing foreword.

I thought the same thing Dragfreak, but I then realize that it sticks up under the dash away form the seat. So I turned it back toward the seat. Anyway, expect more soon.

Hey guys,
So since all I've done lately is take pictures and work, I'm going to just throw all of my pictures on here up till the end of the build. Thanks and expect more projects soon. And yes, midnightprowler, I did end up clearing the body after I had had it on the chassis to somewhat ensure that the decals would remain for now. Without further to do...the most pictures you've ever seen together...my build..
