    WOW! The paint is flawless! Beautiful build!
  2. Real nice looking General Lee! I built one of these a while ago and it's a very nice kit, much better than how the old glue kit is now.
  3. Thanks for the information. I never saw light gray primer but I'm sure they used all shades and colors of primer back then.
  4. Medium to dark gray sounds about right for a Chevy. I never saw light gray primer on a Chevy. That's usually a Chrysler color.
  5. Is it a light, medium or dark gray primer?
  6. Now I'm trying to figure out what color primer should be under Autumn Gold.
  7. So the body color had no effect on what color primer was used?
  8. Did the body color affect what color primer was used or was the primer color dependent on what plant they were built in? I'm painting an AMT 1970 Chevelle in Autumn Gold code 58 which is a 1970 Chevelle color. Would gold have a gray primer or red?
  9. 1970 Chevelle Underside of Hood Color?

    Is it original paint on the underside of the hood?
  10. Does anyone know how the underside of a 1970 Chevelle's hood was painted from the factory? Was it painted the body color or black? I've seen pictures of it painted both ways.
  11. '70 Chevelle kit - Revell vs. AMT

    The AMT kit's body isn't all that bad. Other than the side bulges the overall shape looks good. This build above by Can-Con shows how good this kit can look with a bit of work to the sides. Can-Con did an excellent job modifying the sides. The Monogram is nice but the roof is a bit too high and not sloped right and the front headlight area is too flat. The Revell snap kit's roof is too rounded. Overall I like the AMT body best.

    I think the stance looks great! Beautiful build!
  13. '70 Chevelle kit - Revell vs. AMT

    Excellent job on the sides! It's a beautiful build!
  14. Recently Jim H. posted pictures of the incorrect and correct bodies side by side. Maybe he can give some insight as to the accuracy of the lower half of the body.
  15. I just sprayed the sample on a small piece of styrene so it wasn't obvious if it was less hot. Mine and your friend Rob turned me on to Gunze lacquers and thinner. I also use Gunze Mr. Super Clear that I decant and add some Mr. Leveling thinner in my airbrush. The Mr. Leveling thinner worked perfectly in the PPG lacquer. I'm glad it worked since I didn't want to use automotive lacquer thinner. The PPG lacquer is already a hot paint.
