1970 GM muscle


Recommended Posts

Two long gone oldies from my collection: Monogram 1/24 "Heavy Chevy" Chevelle SS454 (1985 reissue) and JoHan 1/25 Oldsmobile 442 (USA oldies series) - built ca. 1986 mostly out-of-the-box; both have been spraypainted and clear-coated with auto-laquer from the can , trim is brushed on with Humbrol silver enamel.

The following pictures are from 2008 - you can clearly see the similarities as well as the differences between these two:

Before selling them off with a bunch of other models in 2020, I took some single photos of each (a further 12 years later) - here we go:

They look marvelous. 

Great looking muscle cars. I have that same Chevelle on my shelf. Built it about 28 years ago. Shot it with Boyd true blue pearl. It's always been one of my favorites.
