Thank You very much!

Francis: I also built a 58 Impala years ago with openable doors, wich was an AMT-kit.

Best regards

Ludwig

Really nice work, Ludwig. The engine detailing, interior and paint are truly exceptional.

Difficult to believe it's a model.  Looks so real and well detailed.

Hans, did you have any troubles with yours, regarding the height of the rear suspension? I'm getting close to finishing mine. Using the parts in the kit, my rear tires are right up against the top of the wheel wells. This did not come with low rider parts as far as I know? So I'm wondering what I did wrong with mine?

Thanks Ludwig!

I remembered that it was an AMT kit after asking the question ... thanks anyway for taking the time to clarify!   Beside the doors feature, the Revell kit seem superior to its AMT counterpart in the details!?

Thank You very much!

Scott: No, I didn't have any problems with the height of the rear suspension. My kit, by the way, was one of Revell's "California Wheels"-Series.

Francis: Yes, the Revell-Kit has some special features, concerning details. For example, the chrome moldings have to be glued onto the body, so You don't have to use BMF oder a thin brush for this detailing.

Cool Impala.  Nice work on the interior.  I like the body color.  Too bad Testors discontinued it.

Beautiful work! I've got an AMT '58 Impala on my to-do list. It will be painted in a jade green metallic. I'm still thinking about what colors I'll be using for things like the headliner.

Oh, and I know what a Y block 292 is. I have an old Ford truck with a 239 Y block under the hood. Love that engine!

Excellent build, nice job. You can tell from my avatar the 58 Impala is one of my favorite cars.

Stunning build, Ludwig. Gorgeous paint work and great color choice. The ‘58 Impala is one of my favorite designs from the late fifties. What a great era for cars.

Speechless. That paint and finish is incredible. The engine bay is amazing and the interior is killer
