Hey, started this new build. Will be box out build with maybe some little detailing.
I usually build lowriders and customs but this time I thought I should go with something simple to clear my mind and bring me back to the shape(havent built anything serious since last summer). Plus it was interesting to do some research about the actual car.

Doing some research about 72 Cutlass, some help needed.

26 May 2012 - 11:49 PM

(First:sorry for my English)

Hey guys, I just ordered myself a Revell's 72 Cutlass.
I'm currently feeling lack of inspiration building lowriders and customs where I feel myself at home so I decided to try something different, like 72 Cutlass. So far I thought I might build it factory stock ,I havent found any custom version of 72 that would instantly stick on me, and Its been a while when I last built a factory stock car .

Yesterday I did some research about the 72 and 71 Cutlass, I thought Saddle Bronze would be nice color. But my concern is the grille part. Someone in this forum mentioned about 71 having black grille and aluminium headlight inserts and 72 having aluminium grille with black headlight inserts.
But searching google had me confused, there are both black and aluminium grille versions on google. So which is correct? I like the black grille much more, I'm not really fond of this robustious mesh some grilles have. I thought hell with it I will build 71 but then I saw 72 having much cooler taillights so I will stick with 72.

This is the grille I dont really like:

These are the ones that look cool in my opinion, but I'm not sure if they are historically correct:

Maybe someone has a close up picture of Revell's kit grille :) .

Any other tips about Revell's 72(what i should do to make it more accurate) are welcome

Working front suspension, need your ideas

Okay, I'm currently working on the Revell's 64 Impala and I was thinking about making the suspension work, but I'm kinda out of ideas how to do it for front suspension.

The kit has separate frame and upper/lower A-arms. Well thats where my main problem is, springs and other stuff should be piece of cake but I'm struggling how to join the A-arms to the frame that arms could move up and down + no losing in detail + some strenght to handle the movement and not break every time.

I figured it kinda hard to make them exactly like 1:1 chevy A-arms work in such a small scale.

Anyone has ever done something like that? Would like some reference pictures.
