`66 GTO - A quick build

29 posts in this topic

Posted

I got tired of seeing this kit just sitting on the shelf, and I don`t have any GTOs to display, so I thought I would whip this one together quick while waiting to finish my main projects. This took me a total of about two weeks to complete, which is lightning fast for me. I actually "finished" this over a month ago, but I still haven`t had time to put the emblems on. That`s why you don`t see any emblems yet.

I had a little trouble on the front bumper which you can see in the pics, but other than that, it was a terrific kit.

Thanks everyone! The color is Testors Custom Lacquer Series Phoenician Yellow. It was the exact shade I was looking for.

Ohh...and the wheels are the Keystone Classics from the 68 Charger kit.

Great build, I do quick builds also, sometimes you just need that break from the big projects

My mom's first car was a '66, my mom didn't have it very long because something broke( I think the A arm or something, idk)and then replaced it with a '65 which is still in our possession today . Nice Goat, i love seeing these built

Nice to see Candlelite Cream for a change from red and black.

Well done.

That's "the exact shade" I've been looking for too! That's Pontiac's take on Chevy's "Lemonwood Yellow" from 1966, which I need for the replica I'm planning of the '66 Corvair Monza I had for many years. Thanks for the tip. :)

It`s the Revell kit. I was very pleased with it. In fact, it has much better detail than the 1/8 kit I am currently working on.
