Terrible Too! '65 Chevy II FXer

I am about to (FINALLY!) get this project off the bench. I began work on this before I moved to Minnesota. I accomplished a lot of this work while living there. Never took it over the hump. That's about to change! While awaiting a shipment for my '70 Chevelle, I will finish this one. At one time, this was going to be part of a diorama project, thus, it is pretty much a curbside deal. The diorama is also the explanation for the "rag" covering the injector. I think the "terrible towel" looks okay, so I won't be eliminating it (even though everything beneath it is detailed, sans hydraulic throttle linkage).

A couple more engine shots. The project evolved, as far as its purpose, which is why some photos have the towel, and some, the scoop.

Very nice! I especially like the way you got the front wheels ALL the way forward in the openings, the way so many of the real early Nova funnies did. Nice touch!

Terrific! Definitely captures the look of a privateer match racer from '66! Headers look so much better than the kit supplied sewer pipe.

Thanks, Walt! I appreciate that, coming from you. The kit headers are double butt-ugly!

Thanks, Edgar! It's not quite finished, but, I'm hoping for the end of the day, today! Thank you, Chris, much appreciated! Rick, thanks! As I recall, I used a color from PlastiCote's "Classic Metals" line. There are several of those that were great for modelers! One color was perfect for unpolished magnesium wheels. I found them at either Michael's or Walmart.

Pretty darned detailed for a humble diorama model. Love the finishes on the blower and the interior and the bracket holding the fuel tank. I prefer it without the towel because the motor looks so good, but the towel is well done, too, LOL! Very realistic looking AWB.

"Pretty darned detailed for a humble diorama model." Thanks, Bernard. That's because it's so dadgum difficult for me to just build something! It's always, "Gotta' add this. Oh! This would look cool! Let me try this!" I appreciate your kind words, as always. Originally, I had some apprehension about the towel, as well (it was one of the aspects of the model that played into the dio's theme), but, as the project wore on, across the better part of two decades, I finally looked at it as, "Well, I won't have to mess with throttle linkage, this way!" Overall, I'm pretty happy with it, but, I think I like the '34a little better.
