  1. Started with the Revell kit. Regular gloss black and Gloss Guard's Red. Came out looking pretty good after a little bit of trouble with the trim.

    '60 Impala

    The build thread can be found on the workbench Thanks for looking
  3. Hey everyone, I'm new to the forum and this is my 2nd post here. I've been lurking on this forum for a few months and I must say you guys sure have talent! I've picked up a few tricks here and for that I'm greatful! I just started this Impala today. The body is Duplicolor Chrysler gold. The interior is Duplicolor GM red. The wheels came from a 1/25 scale R/C Camaro - Maisto I think. The idea came from watching Iron Resurrection on the Velocity channel. Thanks for looking. Stay Tuned...

    '59 Impala

    I built this one over 15 years ago. I'm not sure of the paint. I kept this pit pretty bone stock. Just a few subtle changes like the accelerator pedal. I'm not sure what I was thinking or where I was going with that upper hose. Thanks for looking

    '65 Impala

    I finished this one up over 15 years ago. She's been on display ever since. The paint is definitely duplicolor but I don't know the code number. I'm not sure if I made a wheel change. I may have used the wheels from 36 Ford with the trailer. For some reason the hood warped between and now. Maybe I'll stick it some warm water and try to reshape it. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks for looking

    '67 Impala

    I built this over 15 years ago. I'm not sure of the color code but I do know it's Duplicolor. I kept this one pretty much box stock. On this one, I applied a little bit of BMF on the emblems and I filled in the gap in the hood where the glue on intake was. I love the lines on the '60's cars. Thanks for looking
  7. I just bought a 1985 Impala from Modelhaus and I'm planning to build a LAPD unit. And are curious about a few things - Did LAPD use 1985 Impala? If not which year models did they use? - what interior colors did they use? - Did they use bench seats ? - Did the rear seat have seat belts ? Photos would also be appreciated
  8. Hello, my name is Brad I live up in Canada (Ontario). I'm new the the board. I could use some advice and help with this huge project no pun intended. The idea is to create a 1/6 scale replica of the 1967 4 door Impala featured in "Supernatural" using 3d printed parts that I can hopefully get made into some sort of mold to create more for much less than the original cost of the 3d printed parts. I like the show a bit but I'm more about the car, I love that car. I've recently bought a 3ds max model of the 1967 impala to get started. It cost me around $100, kinda expensive I know but it was the most accurate one I could find and it was much cheaper than 3d scanning parts for an existing model like the greenlight impala. 3d printing something like this in poly-jet or sla will be expensive, probably $2000 at the cheapest so I need to really figure this all out before getting a huge print made up. I'd like to get a mold made of some of these parts like the body to make more so that It will be much less expensive to do a second or third. I'm not sure which direction to take with designing it, I could simplify parts like hinges and steering mechanism and leave out a lot of details like suspension to make this a bit easier or go all out for accuracy. Everything from how to make this simpler in design for functionality (for example: wheels turn, wheels move, doors hood & trunk open & close, how will everything attach) to what materials to make it out of are what I am confused and very overwhelmed by. I don't know yet. I've been thinking about this ocd a bit and am having a hard time just wanting to give up on the idea even though it will be difficult and Is going to be a some what large learning curve for me as I have never done anything like this before. I'm not really a modeler, I haven't built anything before and to be honest right now I'm only interested in this project as far as model building goes (I'm a bit ocd about it). I first wanted to try the ecto-1 from Ghostbusters in 1/6 scale but after not being able to find a good enough 3d model of it I settled on the Impala, besides the ecto-1 would be too far out of my price range right now. the impala seems simple enough. I'm good enough with 3d design but have never created anything to be 3d printed for functional moving parts before. The 3d model I have bought has everything in high detail, engine and all luckily. If I was to get this 3d printed does any one here know of a company that could make molds of it? I'm not even sure what material of mold style would be best for this. I don't even know what material to get it made out of even if I get a mold made. ABS? some kind of resin? what kind of resin? I'm a noob for sure with all of this and figured this was the best place to start for help. There is so much to learn it's overwhelming me. I'm in no real rush to do this so I am looking to take this slow until everything is ready to print. Sorry if this sounds like one long run on sentence. I guess I should write a list of things to get figured out so I'm not going in circles about it all in my head. Let know know what you guys think about this project. I bough the model from a guy on cg trader--> https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-models/car/antique/chevrolet-impala-ss-1967
  9. Came out great. Not a bad kit.
  10. So I'm going to be building a twin turbo 427 Impala and need advice. i would love to be able to fit some slicks under it, and would prefer to scratch build a chassis for it. I'm not sure how to solder so brass is not an option. So styrene tubes and rods are going to be used. I have never built a chassis, so maybe doing a back-half chassis to fit massive slicks is a good place to begin. Any advice for beginners in this area of building? i want the slammed and raked look to this build. Any other advice or ideas I can incorporate to make this build stand out? I'm fairly versed in model building and some scratch building, just not frames.
  11. Not bad for a kit that was incomplete when I bought it. Wish it had emblem decals, but it came out great.
  12. Picked up a new model last week in Reno. Looking forward to learning from my mistakes on my previous kit 1970 Chevy Monte Carlo. This is the Revell 1965 Chip Foose edition Chevy Impala With Clear
  13. I was almost finished with the paint on this car and made some pretty dumb mistakes. This was the first car I chose since getting back into the hobby. She spent a few days in the purple pond and then Dawn Detergent and water. I've decided to spray Duplicolor Primer/Sealer to hopefully ensure that I don't have ant issues from the previous work. I'll sand her down tomorrow and shoot the second coat. Then it'll be time for Duplicolor Universal Black! I'm posting from my iPhone and it isn't very friendly with the text box and adding attachments. Here's some before and after and then after the strip down pictures. After those are photos with the new primer.
  14. I plan on build Caprice coupe with the fishbowl glass 77-79. I have required the interior,body and glass. Does anyone know if there was made any kit`s,diecast or aftermarket options for the early versions? Any suggestions are welcome but in 1:24/1:25 scale only. Thanks Tommy
  15. I finally finished this '58 Impala convertible with Buddy Baker's markings. This was a very fun build, and all started because I bought a kit with no glass. So I cut down a windshield from a '55 chevy truck, and added duct tape for a frame. On the Bench pictures can be found at http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=91336&hl= I wrapped some sprue with yarn to make the roll bar. Thanks for looking! John
  16. Created a Maryland State Police impala. Fictional Model based on one that would have been seized from a drug trafficker. Built mostly stock except a few dress up items on the motor. Scratch built the radar antennas on the front and rear deck. Scratch built the front dash rotater style light with the flash shield behind it. since this is a car that would have been used in the 90s it would not have any of the current LED style emergency lighting. Im still debating on adding a light bar or not.
  17. So heres a project i've been working on for some time. got the kit sometime back and wanted to do something different, so i racked my brain and got to work. Working on the skirts with suff corners and made some F&B bumper guards and new style mouldings.
  18. One of my favorite builds

    Buck Baker '58 Impala

    I'm starting to work on a '58 Impala to replicate Buck Baker's convertible. I've found very few reference pictures. Where can I get more information? Thanks.
  20. Revell 59 Impala convertible in gloss red and white. Came out pretty good. My only issues were with the wheel fit and the interior. The front looks lowered. Kinda like a low rider, but I built it stock and the way the directions say. As for the interior, the directions weren't clear on how to set up the door panels, so I took a guess that came up looking alright.
  21. Hi. Here is my build for the Cannonball Run. AMT gluebomb bought out of Ebay. I just imagine the Impala to be a very comfy car to travel long distance in. Of course i had to try make it pack some punch for when it will overtake the others lol. The recipe is simple,fullsize,bench/sofa,big block with an huge turbo,manual, fuel injection for "fuel economy". As for looks it`s pretty bland,and it got a little taller on the rear then i had planned,but i just stuck with it. Here are some pictures. Thanks for looking and comments are welcome.
  22. Hi all, sorry about getting my years of Impalas confused, but this is a '62 Impala, not sure which motor im gonna use, I don't have the (thriftmaster 6) its been BMF and interior detailed and done one more of the outside yhanks for comments and thanks for looking, Shaun.s
  23. Back in 1975 I originally built this 1958 Chevy Impala. Back then I thought it would be cool to have opening doors, steerable wheels, etc. Of course, it didn't really happen. The doors were awful and the paint was worse. I got glue on the windshield and on the body and pretty much gave up. Anybody else know that feeling? So last month I ran across it again and had 2 choices - (1) Keep it as is as a memory of my impatient youth or (2) rebuild it. I chose #2 and stripped it down. Originally it was blue, but I went with the red and white color scheme. I found pictures of interior colors. A bit strange to today's standards, but it worked for '58! I've still got some issues (like the carpet monster eating the rear taillight bezels) but it's moving along! Comments welcome!
  24. Hello. Anyone know who offers the best open hood 1965 Impala wagon?
  25. This is the old AMT kit. I have seen some write it is kinda bad,but i enjoy building it. Any comments are welcome.
