Recently finished: My 1/25 scale version of John D'Agostino's '68 Buick Riviera custom called Pantheon:
The original car looks like this:
I used amt's '69 Riviera kit to rebuild it in scale. I shaved the body, chopped the top, lowered the suspension, scratch built the wheels and a custom tube grille and wired the engine
. Further i tried to replicate some interior details like the tuck'n'roll on the dash, package shelf and door panels, built a center console with cup holders and a TV. Used a parts box steering wheel and amt Parts Pack tires.
All what was done to hold kit can be viewed here:
Not my best build I must confess. Had a lot of problems with shrinking putty and leaking glue, stance seems not to be low enough and the BMF work could be cleaner... But well, it's done now and I'm happy with my scratch built wheels and glad that I managed the tricky chop.
Now, the Pantheon sits in my show case next to John's '61 Oldsmobile The Golden Starfire:
Thanks for watching, comments are always welcome!
