Revell 65 Chevy Impala "Red Rusty"

Recommended Posts

So I'm working on a Revell '66 Impala to be built in the style of my Lime Green '65 and wanted another set of the Foose wheels to keep the build style in tradition to the '65. So I got another Foose '65 for real, put the custom wheels aside in the '66 box and brainstormed ideas for the 2nd '65. I was going to make it a gasser Impy or slapping some mags and painting it baby blue of some sort, but then I saw the rear glass came broken in half in the bag and then I had this odd idea come over me and stumbled upon some rust bucket impalas upon a photo search for some inspiration. This is also my very first rusting, "junking", and weathering attempt along with simulating a "broken" glass, and although not to extreme levels I think it came out good considering just getting sloppy for the hell of it and messing around with Testors rust paint and oxide red primer. Mostly OOB, body paint is Rustoluem Gloss Red as an approximation for 1965 Chevrolet Ralley Red, and the frame is mist coated sears red oxide primer (which is a very close rust color if applied in certain coats).

You know some builders try very hard to get a broken window to look that good, and you just opened the box. Great job on the weathering. Poor old unloved Impala.

Great job on weathering. Looks right.  Hauler is pretty darn nice too.

Nice overall first attempt at weathering.  Two comments...

Go for overall consistency.  Dirty up the engine and transmission.  A wash of flat black or even the gunk in the bottom of your thinner bottle will help here.

Rear window -  US cars of that era had safety glass that pebbled when shattered.  A windshield would break as you have modeled.
