Revell 68 Chevelle

Recommended Posts

Ok I shall be the first to hack one of these up into a stock car. This kit is awesome. So far I’ve opened the wells a little added a fuel fill opening and fuel overflow. Dechromed the sides and filled mirror mounts. Lowered it and made screwjacks.

I've always wanted to do a Raymond car. Maybe this will give me the inspiration I need to follow through some day. So many builds , so little time.

That's going to be great. What decals are you using?  Is that car orange or red? Who is Zhong Shan?  Questions, questions, questions.

The decals are Powerslide. Paint is Ford Performance red. It’s a very orangey red . I was thinking Zhongshan Shan is the eight year old running the mold machine that made the kit.

That is coming along great. Love the paint and decal work.

 

I noticed the #44 car in one of your pictures. I just came back to the hobby after some time away, have you posted pics of that build anywhere, where I could take a peek at it?

Got some more done today the only fit issue I’ve seen with this thing is the rear bumper. Trim a little on the back of the qtr taillight opening fixed it right up. Bare metal is done windows in window braces in. Seat bolsters on. Final test fit.

I don't know whether to give you kudos now or wait for the other 2 %. All joking aside , that is the best Friday Hassler build I have ever laid eyes on. Your model looks better then the real car. Let me ask you again. What do you use for the screen material on the grille? This is another Awesome build from your bench.
