This isn't being built as a factory correct stocker. It's more of a mild kustom.

Cool, and nice work so far.

 

Man, it looks like the resin wagon was based on the ill-designed first issue of the Lindberg Impala…little extra bow in that windshield cowl area...

Very nice project. Did Revell make the bubble top for 62? Thought this was AMT only.

The '61 resin wagon in the first photo, behind the '62 hardtop body, the one you cut the roof off…Lindberg's first round of that kit had the cowl shaped incorrectly - they fixed it in subsequent issues - but the resin wagon you chopped the roof off looks like it was based on the original…

 

I am not really contributing anything, just saying...

 

I will be watching the long roof transformation, though :)
