SMP 1960 Impala

Recommended Posts

I build this 1960 impala several years ago while I was testing a new brand of paint.  It came out kind of lime green.  My friend asked me if I painted it with a High Lighter pen, so I had to do something new.

I repainted the Impala using Scale Finishes Cascade Green.  I used Bare Metal Foil, and covered it with Tamiya TS13 clear coat.

I sanded the seat inserts and printed a set of green decal inserts.  I like the updated look.

Great looking redo and the new color looks much better. Nice to see some of these much older kits get a little love.

I just searched ebay for white Laser water slide decal paper.  The paper I got is a generic decal paper, it didn't have a brand name

Great build ! The first paint job looks like the color of the Plastic in the '60 AMT Nomad JR Series re-pop I bought in the way back , The Cascade Green really makes this authentic  :). I did buy seat decals from Keith Marks for the '58 & '59 Impala MY's . He didn't list the '60 MY . I made a Copy paper replica for my Revelle '60 Impala .  Your solution is quite unique and nicely done . I am limited to an Inkjet Printer . Kudos and stunning IMHO .. Thanx
