This one is going to be a recreation of my first car. It was a 72 Chevelle, non-SS, non-Malibu, with a 307-2bbl engine which had a whopping 130 hp. It was Hugger Orange with a white vinyl top. Wish I still had it!
I started with a glue-bomb AMT kit. Both a-pillars were broken. Here is the progress after making them from evergreen strips.
I removed the wheel molding chrome. It will still need a little filling to get them right.
The car had a flat hood. I've never seen on a 1/25 kit, so I'm making one. Here you can see the inserts from the bottom.
And progress from the top:
Lastly, it had the base model dash, not the SS gauge cluster. Still working through this. I'm thinking gauge decals from a Nova or Impala would be pretty close.
Rallye wheels and a small-block and I'm there!
