    You sir are a prince among men. You just saved me a lot of money because I might have purchased another kit for the hood. Thank you!

    Can't wait to see this one. That kit is the only 1/24 source for that particular hood shown on the box(there's a resin one in 1/25 out there); the reissues of this car in GTX trim had the scoop hood with I don't like as much aesthetically.
     
    Love the idea of this car with the vinyl roof. Looking forward to the work!

    Yes, the florescent yellow dries dead flat, like all florescent colors do, so I cleared it with Future and let it dry very, very thoroughly. Only after that did I mask off and paint the cowl and roof rails semi-gloss black.

    Paul Menard 2011 Brickyard winning Impala

     

     

     
    Paul Menard's winning car from the 2011 Brickyard 400. AMT COT Impala with a resin front air dam. Pactra flour. yellow paint, Patto's Place decals. I added bars to the roll cage, wired the ignition boxes and added a fuel line to the interior. The paint doesn't photo well, it's searingly bright in person.

    That is stunning work. It really looks like the cars I saw as a kid in the mid-80s.

    That looks great! What chassis is it on?

    That is really interesting and beautifully weathered! Thanks for sharing!

    Looks like Patto's Place has them, almost as a full wrap (he does cater to slot cars, so a wrap makes some sense there).

    Why did they kill off the kit?

    My 6 year old daughter has built some of the Zvezda Cars kits and enjoyed them, so I'm happy Revell is getting into the game as well. I'll have to check these out for her.

    Those CN cars all look terrific. I've built a bunch of them, there's surprisingly many of those CN schemes that they ran.

    I meant what kinds of building techniques did you use on the chassis?
     
    I'm using a Revell for my Hooters car and I had trouble. But it's not the fault of the kit, it's the fault of the builder.

    That looks great!
     
    What decals did you use? What paint? And lastly, can you give some tips on the chassis? I've got a Hooters Underbird on my bench right now and I had a terrible time getting the chassis together. Yours looks so much cleaner than mine.

    That is stunning.
     
    What color did you use for the red interior?
  15. Merkur XR4Ti added a post in a topic 1984 Custom Cadillac (California Wheels Edition) By Revell   

    What would people suggest for more stock wheels and tires? I have this kit and would like to finish it but the stance has baffled me as I'd prefer a more stock look.
