    1964 Impala Lowrider

    I keep getting in a slump with projects lately,            but I can pick up a 64 Impala and I get inspired ! !      

    So I figured id build another one !  Every kit I build I try and improve from the last one, so I'm gonna try and beat my last 64, but I'm keeping this a little more subtle, just more detailed !
    Interior was first, lots of smoothing out join lines then a coat of matt white, I removed the door handles, winders etc and replaced em with chrome parts from the spares box. I removed the SS logo and added a transfer then added p/e ring around the door light !  Lots of delicate BMF and paint and it look like this !

    Great work on this GeeTee, always good to see someone making the best of Revells 64, such a good kit !
    Great paint also, as DeeCee said that tape work is harder than people realise !

    Wow, really impressed with this !
    A LOT of little details make a big difference on this, the windows open, suicide doors, engine work, dash conversion, the list goes on !   Great job I'm sure Kindig would be proud ! !

    Christine gets trashed, finished pics.
    I've been thinking of building this for some time now, the Christine 58 Fury, but after Buddy Repperton and the gang trash it.  One of my favourite films of all time it hurts to see the film car destroyed, its also hard to recreate it !  There is a build thread in the workbench, and its now parked up in its new home, an old Fujimi garage I adapted to look vaguely like the garage scene.
    I took these pics at the models first outing, a large car show in the UK.  Thanks to those who followed the build, and enjoy the pics !

    Don't mean to tease here but every time I try pics of this the car it comes out orange ! !   Its complete anyway and ready for its first outing !  Lots of little details in the engine are added, along with lots of broken trim and more glass, I'm well pleased with it !   
    Will get some pics from the show, and include some decent pics of Christine finally finished, will add these to the showroom soon. 
    Thanks again for comments etc along the way !

    Pretty much finished this, been fighting me to the finish because nothing lines up with the body bent !
    Was going to get pics up but photo bucket is playing up ( again! )  so I will try again soon !

    Thanks Mike...
    Latest on this is its in paint, finally !  
    After a primer coat, most of which I rubbed down, I've laid on 3 coats of Tamiya TS49, its quite a bright red but I wanted it slightly lighter than the interior, which was a rustoleum  spray. Not sure of the name as I finished the can... Roof was painted rustoleum gloss white, should be fun now with the BMF as I can mess it up and it wont notice.... 
    Also threw my fujimi garage together, I just made it simple and bland, and not copied from the film, as its a backdrop to the car which is the main focus !
    Want this finished this week as its going on display at a large car show here in the UK ! So more soon !
