    Great job on this build, Joe!!! ย You've made an amazing transformation since you took her out of the box!!! ย I'm looking forward to seeing the finished reveal!!!๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ

    You have done an amazing job, Richard!!! ย It looks like the Nova is going to have an equally excellent shop to reside in as well!!! ย I love your work because I believe the skills to properly distress a model are as great or greater than the skills required for a glass smooth job!!! ย Looking forward to more!!!๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ

    Both cars look real good so far!!! ย I've just started a new Revell 30 myself. ย I'm working on lowering the front end and z-ing the rear of the frame to line the rear tires up with the wheel wells. ย Good luck with your two. ย Looking forward to seeing more!!!๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ

    I was looking at the very same 55 Chevy a few weeks ago and was thinking that it was a cool concept that would be fun with just about any 50's car. ย You're off to a great start so it will be fun to watch yourย progress. ย I may try one myself one day. ย I think Jesse is right about extending the chassis in front of the rear wheels to put the passenger compartment in the right place. ย Take your time and it will turn out great!!!๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ

    Your real Camaro is gorgeous, Mark, and the model is getting there as well!!! ย Great thread and thank you for sharing your skills and ideas and processes with us. ย I, for one will put some of your build techniques into future models that I build!!!๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ

    I'm kind of late to the party but thoroughly enjoyed this thread. ย Thanks, Tim, for your in depth review of the kit and a huge Kudo's to Revell and all involved in this and the 29 roadster for such excellent kits. ย I appreciate all the insight all of you guys here on the forum have brought to light. ย I'm going to build mine with a few tweaks here and there and build it my way. ย I'm not going to overhaul the kit because it'll be great anyway. ย We now have several modern rods to choose from and we are blessed even with the nits. ย We are truly in the golden age of modeling and I'm loving it!!! ย It's all good, fella's!!!! ย I hope everyone enjoys this kit kit as much as I am, no matter how you build it!!!๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ

    You're off to a great start, Jason!!! ย The black paint looks great and the heat that the body was in should serve to cure the paint much like a dehydrator does. ย The seats are looking great as well. ย What a major improvement over the kit decals. ย Can't wait to see more!!!๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ

    Hi Joe!!! ย Kool build of a tough build!!! ย I love where you're going with this. ย I love Gassers but these vintage Chevy's look awesome slammed to the ground. ย Your engine is killer and it's gonna be so Kool in the car. ย Can't wait to see more!!!๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ

    Thanks for the great tutorial, Cameron! ย I found some .032 50/50 solid solder at my local True Value hardware store. ย This solder is used for soldering electrical wires and may be available at Radio Shack as well. ย ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ
