    AMT 1964 Impala SS
    It's done. Far from perfect, I'm out of practice, but it was fun for the most part. 

    I dropped the hood taking pictures and scratched it, so I'll have to fix it.

    Some detail painting and assembly. The interior is a quandary. It has an automatic console, a ball shifter (should be a tee and the transmission attached to the engine is a manual), and it has wells for the convertible top mechanism (a problem with most all AMT kits from this time. I know, these kit's parts design were shared with the promos. The 409 engine is simple and of course has an axle hole. Air cleaner, breather, and valve covers are supposed to be chrome plated, so I foiled them. My detailing is a bit sloppy, but I'm happy so far. Have to paint the exhaust next, which of course is molded to the chassis.

    More to come

    AMT 1964 Impala SS
    I built one of these when I was really young (6-7) Or I should say I ruined a perfectly good model. It took a while for me to start building it, because I did something wrong (theft) and it was taken from me before I could start building it. I did eventually get it back and discovered the hard way, that candy grape is not meant to be sprayed directly on plain white plastic.
    So Round 2 released it almost the same as it was when I was a kid, except the baby moon steelies where replaced with 5 spoke Crager SS or Appliance like mags. I've done all of my preliminary painting, now it's time for foiling and decaling. I wanted to try my luck with gold paint, because I have never been successful with this color and this one was no exception. I'm pressing on and will complete it anyhow. The colors are not factory correct, but I like them. More to come

    It's so cool they're releasing this kit again. I hope it comes with the bird of paradise decals. I built (ruined) this kit when I was a kid because the decals had to be cut from the paper and up to that point i had only built a few kits where the decals where separate on the paper. I seem to remember just laying the whole decal over the car.

    I had the Z28 from the same period. Ertl made several unassembled diecast at this time. I'm thinking none of them are highly collectible. They would have value to someone who just has to have one. Ertl before acquiring AMT, made their own models. Mainly big rigs and of pretty good quality. Blueprint was on all their kits. The quality was fair on the diecasts. They were pretty simple as most diecasts were at the time. That's about all I know.

    So another step closer to getting in the swing of building again. I saw these kits on the shelves of Wal-Mart along with the Camaro and Mustang. Unfortunately, Wal-Mart pulled the kits before I made a purchase. Hobby Lobby had this one discounted, so I bought it. The paint finish is excellent, too bad Revell doesn't smooth the parting lines before painting. I guess Revell is trying to help the beginner builder by molding parts in different colors and painting the body. The interior is molded in a dark charcoal and the chassis is molded in a metallic charcoal. The builder is given some simple paint instructions to enhance the kit. I didn't put a lot of effort into detailing, because it's just a shelf model. 
    The chassis and interior are simple, but can be detailed to look good. The exhaust is wrong for the 2013 SRT8 and the primary muffler (nicknamed the suitcase) should be two smaller mufflers. The only disappointment are the wheels. I think they are supposed to be Vapor wheels which should be a black chrome. The mold is soft and the detail is lost after chroming. I just painted them metallic black and rubbed the edge to give a different look. One other thing, I forgot to paint the rear lower valence black. Have a look.

    Does anyone know of a good source of wheels for these cars? The kit wheels are way too shallow. PPP wheels for 60-70s Holman Moody wheels look close, but if there is a better source let me know.

    Reminds me of some of the Bugattis they stopped making them. Very nice!

    I can tell by the backward slanted 340 it's the AMT Pro Shop Duster pre painted kit body that came out several years ago. What are you using for the chassis? Did you cut off the front clip or is it broken off? The reason I ask, is the cut/break doesn't follow the fender where it meets the door.
