1999 Chevrolet Silverado CK 1/25 Revell #85-7646


Recommended Posts

I'm really not often on this forum. Sorry for that. So I took some time, to show another kit, that I finished in Jauary 2021 (!).

I didn't plan to build this cool pick up truck. It sat over "decades" in my shelf until a guy asked my brother, to rebuilt his GMC Sierra, based on this Chevrolet. So my brother and I started a conversion (I will show it later). This kit I only build, to show the changes, we've made.

This kit is stright out of the box. Nothing changed.

It is this model kit, I used:

The built up was good. No problems. If this kit would not be that rar in Germany, I'd buy a hand ful more of it to convert it into the different cabs. A short on, a crew cab and king cab or what els is out there would be cool to have.

Enough of the words, here are the pictures.

Great looking stock build. Very nice paint work. Other than some trim moldings and the grill the Chevrolet and the GMC trucks are pretty much the same. Pretty common vehicle around here.

Nice stock build, and the conversion looks really good! Please post More on that one in the section trucks/suvs 🙂 

I am working with this… body, not using anything else from this kit, at the moment. Se under WIP trucks. Will build a more stock one later.

Thank you very much! I'm not that often here and the last weeks we had some trouble here in my area.

I'm going to do a separate thread for the GMC. There I'll show some pictures of the transformation process.

I took a 1/24 scale die cast and did a mold out of the grille. I fitted it to the 1/25 body. After a lot of molds it turned out, that it fit to the body. On my point of view, not bad at all. I'll show pictures in the thread for the GMC.
