Revel Chevrolet Chevelle SS396

Recommended Posts

Supplied by Revel l for a magazine review for Scale Modelling Now, decided to airbrush it in Chevrolet Grecian Green metallic, which I've ordered from MCW lacquer.

The molding on the body is superb, with minimal clean up required, nothing glued as yet, just dry fitting,

Engine halves glued together, oil sump and intake manifold fitted, once the glue dries up the seams will be removed, primed and painted Chevrolet engine red

Chassis crossmember fitted, and engine dry fitted into chassis, the chassis was dry fitted onto the floorpan, so far everything is going together very well,

i've ordered the correct factory colour of Grecian Green from MCW Lacquer, hopefully the garage will be tidied and the spray booth installed out there by the time the paint arrives,

I haven't decided yet, but I'm thinking the Rallye wheels would look good on it,luckily you get a choice of wheels in the kit.

Trust Revell Germany to get the box art incorrect, it will have the stripes along the side, but not the racing stripes on the bonnet (Sorry, Hood), as per the photo of the 1:1 i posted up.

After 3 weeks of not having any time to get into the hobby room, I finally had a day free yesterday,so the airbrush came out and I've finally got all the parts, apart from the bodyshell and bonnet in primer and sorted into groups so they can be painted in the final colours, I'm going to get a little more done over the weekend,as the next few weeks I'm going to be way too busy with work to even think of getting any modelling done, I'm still catching up with my photography work after taking a month off after suffering a mild heart attack at the beginning of April.

Cheers Shay, I'm not too happy with the seat belt decals, as they look way out of scale, but as it's a magazine article, and the kit was supplied by Revell, I had to use them.

Reversing lights Geoff, honestly....lol

What's UV resin, that thing that sounds like a dental product. Bondic or something?
