  1. The wife needed to go to Hobby Lobby a couple of weeks ago, and forced me to go with her,πŸ˜‚ lol. I was on my best behavior and was rewarded with these, the Amt 1969 Olds 442, and the Revell '68 Chevelle 😁. The Chevelle called to me, even though I told myself that I didn't need the '68 after knowing the '69 release was coming soon πŸ€”. Gotta love the 40% off coupon, $18 for the 442 and $15 for the Chevelle +taxπŸ€‘. She also gave her approval on another kit after I mentioned about a box-art build-off in a Facebook group I'm in, but didn't have anything in my stash that tickled my fancy for that theme. My choice was the Revell Sox & Martin 1967 Plymouth GTX. I found one on ebay for less than $20 from a seller that offers a great combined shipping rate, so I sweet-talked her into letting me get another kit, the Revell Shelby Cobra 427 S/C for less than $20 also, so I can do part two of my long-term Gumball Rally project. Oh yeah, she's a keeper for going on 25 years together now!
  2. Very nice! I like the look of the rear tires.
  3. Very sharp! My favorite color on my favorite Corvette body style!
  4. Very sharp! Would love to see a re-issue of this kit!
  5. That looks fantastic! Very well done and a great color!
  6. I'm certainly interested in a set. One can never have too many figures to choose from for their dioramas.
  7. πŸ‘ πŸ‘ Thanks! I really wanted to keep the fenderwells, I hate the "open wheel" look, and I agree the front spoiler is very attractively aggressive on these cars. I've got it in primer now, but I think I will trim off the drip rails and re-prime before paint. Even on a cheap kit, I hate the idea of not building it even after "borrowing" some parts, lol. I always liked the body style of the '70-'73 Camaros and Firebirds, and I think they look really good with the Pro-touring update, and although I normally don't like the over-sized wheels and tires, up to a certain size is an eye-catcher.
  8. Good stuff Gareth, look forward to seeing more!
  9. I believe that the '60 Ranchero Coke kit comes with 2 of the Green Coke Bottle Cases. Looks like it's in the bag with the clear glass. Hpiguys has a review of the kit on youtube and you can see everything that comes in the kit.
  10. Looks great and that's a nice glossy paint job! Well done!
  11. Here's a link to the video review. Not sure if you need to have an account in order to see the video..https://scaleautomag.com/videos/kit-reviews/2020/06/fast-track-revell-chevelle
  12. I bought the 1970 1/2 Z28 kit when I bought the Baldwin-Motion kit in order to build the Gumball Rally Camaro, as I needed the stock hood and small block motor not included in the Motion kit. With that project done, it's time to turn my attention to building the Z28 kit. It's going to be Pro-Touring/Resto-Mod styled with a Cowl Induction hood from Lex's Scale Modeling, the LS motor from a Revell Chevy SSR kit and the custom rims/tires from the Revell '67 Chevelle SS396 Streetburner kit. The parts layout before the motor was pilfered for the Yellow Camaro: Here we see that this kit has the same mold issue as the Motion kit, so I fiddled with a small piece of styrene and some putty to attach it to the fender, and after some sanding I have a repair: Next up, I shaved the door handles, and emblems. I'm still undecided on removing the drip rails from above the doors: Some test fitting showed me that I needed to raise the fenderwells up in the engine bay. I wanted to still have the fenderwells, so I carefully cut them out much like one would cut out doors and trunks and sanded them to sit flush in their raised location. I used some Bob Smith gap-filling insta-cure to ensure no gaps when I prime the body: I had also previously dropped the front and rear bumpers in a bath of LA's Totally Awesome overnight to strip the chrome and attached them to the body so I can get a clean and uniform all one color look for the body:
