      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    Sounds like a cool conversion Richard. This is similar in size to the 1/24 '64 GTO, that's why i'm using the chassis from it. It slips in perfectly. You can see a hint of the red past the front fender. I had a Maisto but it was smaller in size, plus I knew I could make a nicer one out of the kit. The Monogram '64 GTO matches my Franklin Mint '64 GTO convertible to a T size wise. Here are some comparison pics of the GTO's and the GTO versus Chevelle.

    Thanks guys, I understand Richard. I collect 1/24 diecast and build mostly 1/24 kits. '66 is my favorite year Chevelle and I knew the only way to get a stock looking 1/24 version would be to build my own lol..

    '66 Chevelle.
    Just got this in paint this afternoon. It started out as the street machine kit. I reworked the tilt front end by filling in where the scoop was with a stock SS insert then grafted the nose on to the body. A lot of filling and sanding took place as well. I'm gonna go with some stock '69 SS wheels and tires, I just like the look of those. Done in Madeira Maroon. I love this color. I'm also using the Monogram '64 GTO chassis as they are very similar in design & same wheelbase. this is just the rough preliminary pics so be easy on me lol.[;)][:D]

    Thanks Don, yes, coat hangers work great. I just bend it to fit.

    Thanks guys, yes Curt, it's straight from the can. I always sit it in a bowl of warm water for awhile. The paint flows a lot better when it's warm. Bruce, you got it. I'll get it cleared and polished after I let the paint cure for a couple of weeks.

    Finally had weather warm enough to get the color shot. I think it's a pretty close match. Next is getting the chassis and interior ready for paint.
