Revell 1960 Impala

Recommended Posts

I started this one way back in 2009, I painted it with a large can of red paint but decided I didn't like that color. I dragged it out today and did a quick color change using Tamiya TS-11 maroon. Before and after shots.

I discovered I have another 60 in the box  that I want to paint turquoise, so instead of repainting the wheels again, I borrowed them from this project car.

Thinking about what to do with the project car, I shot it TS-11 maroon and put some tires and wheels on it from the Revell 59 Corvette kit. Plans call for a grey interior and bucket seats and center console from the parts car AMT 67 SS 427 kit.

While I'm more of the brighter Red fan the Maroon color looks good also. I would also try to set the stance more like the red car also.

I like both colors but I prefer the burgundy over the cherry. Those wheels look great with her.

Love these cars in just about any color; even have a stalled project 59 in solid yellow, and a 60 in copper with white roof.

Either color looks great, I love the rake as in the first pic, gives it that tough look. Keep it going Robert.B)

I have the interior painted and sitting in the body, now it sits like it did when it was red.

Engine done!

Since I had a boo boo in the paint on the passenger side, I decided to hide it by putting on the flame decals!
