      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.

    Revell 1957 Chevy "Pops Bumblebee"
    when i was a kid i had this toy car which i loved a lot
    so the plan was to make something similiar with a front flip nose and the carbs poping through the hood. i chose this kit and went for custom options it provides

    for colour scheme i fell in love with this one.

    but i decided to replace the red by yellow, which made it look like a bumblebee camaro. as there were no camaros in 1957, i decided it could be his father.
    thats why i call this build "Pops Bumblebee".
     
    the list of modifications i had to make is huge:

        move the plate from the decklid to the bumper
