Here are two of my Revell Novas, will post up my just completed Yenko this weekend.
This 1:24 Maisto 1970 Chevrolet Nova SS 396 was purchased at WalMart as a result of a strange situation: the model was on the shelf in a new 1:24 scale MotorMax American Classics 1970 Chevy El Camino SS 396 display box!!! I took the item to customer service where I was informed that the item would be sold for half price if I wanted it. Since the doors appeared to be sealed (they were, in fact, painted shut) and I wasn't exactly sure what diecast brand it was, I offered one half of their one half. So for two fifty, the project car was mine. The paint was so thickly applied that with my finger nail and a little time, it eventually was removed. The rigid plastic window glass was beyond repair as it couldn't be made clear no matter what was done to it. I added a new gear shift lever, new window glass from clear plastic packaging material, and put a few details on the pan engine.
Thanks for looking...
I threw together one of the Revell COPO kits... had some Infiniti Pearlcoat paint sitting around, so I just used that over the gray primer to make my own version of silver.
A bit different but still a Nova😎
Here is one that I built about 2 years ago. ScaleFinishes green mist metallic with ScaleFinishes super clear.
Very nice!.... 🙂👍
Here's my '66 Chevy II I built back around 1997-'98. The vinyl top was made using Detail Master's material, but it's a little worse for wear now. I'd use some type of textured paint these days as IMO it would hold up better over time.
Magnets were used for the door latches and this is an earlier attempt at inward turning doors.
Very nice!.... 😎👍
