Here is my first build for 2007. I finished this just in time for NNL East a couple weeks ago.

I used the Boss Nova roof on a 66 Nova body. The hood is from PSF Hobbies. Wheels and tires are from the 66 Chevelle wagon kit. Paint is Tamiya Mica Red over Tamiya Semi Gloss Black.

Scratchbuilt the grill using Evergreen strip and rechromed it using Alclad from the spray can. Grill emblem is photoreduced from a pic on the web. The seats were changed to 1967 pattern.

Engine is the from the kit with a 69 Camaro Cross Ram induction system.

That's pretty cool, Karl. I also saw that at the NNL East. Love them wagons! You'll also have to post your Willys wagon (a favorite of mine) that you built as a woodie. Welcome to the forum.

Very understated model at the NNL. I spoke about this model on the way home. It was one of my favorites. You should do a how to on how you

made the grill.

Dragon7665 - Here is a shot from the rear. I think I made the rear quarter panel fins a little too high (the wagon fins are more horizontal than the 2 door), plus the fact that the kit taillights appear to be a bit too wide and short for the wagon. That filler piece under the taillights should be right above the bumper. Notice that the backup lights are in the bumper. The license plate reads NOT NOVA.

Andy, I'm still trying to work out a trip to MAMA in May. I hope to make it.
