76 Monte Carlo

Built as a "what if it were nice" replica of the rusty primered Monte I had in the early 90's. Revell snap kit. I made the landau top into a full vinyl top, added parts box wheels and tires and a few interior details...otherwise it's right out of box. In keeping with the original, paint is Plasticote black sandable primer, but with duplicolor clear lacquer. Thanks for lookin'

Rob:

This is some really nice work. I really enjoy the snap kits especially when you put some additional effort and imagination into them as you did here. Very clean build and a great addition to your collection!!!

Mine has remained unbuilt because I keep thinking it will always look toy-like. Thank you for the excellent example of why it should be back on my "to do" list.

Great pics too BTW.

I've seen a couple of other build ups of this kit, but yours by far is the best one I've seen. And the black finish is like glass.

I didn't notice at first, but the cassette tapes are a nice touch to that outstanding interior.

This model takes me back to my high school days, before I got into small cars in general and Corvairs in particular... A black 1973-77 Monte Carlo was my dream car. I wanted the same basic car but with tan trim instead of the red (and after looking at your model, I'm beginning to think I was wrong), with those white letter tires wrapped around Chevy Rally wheels instead of your chrome jobs. I agree with Andy above - yours is the best example of this model I've seen so far.

Thats really nice! Don't see too many of these. Not sure why, it's a beautiful car. I had a '73. Well done!

That looks real nice Rob! The interior is exceptionally nice! A little dab of chrome paint on the ends of those headlight pegs will make them all but disappear. How did you accomplish that great looking vinyl top? It looks like it has the perfect texture to it.

That black primer takes a really nice shine with that gloss lacquer.

What did you use for that red interior and vinyl top? That's a really nice match for the "firethorn" color.
