Just getting started but I'm excited about this build. I'm actually combining parts from the Street fighter kit and a diecast model. Plus the big block and other bits from a Monogram '70 Chevelle.

Hi Geno,

Looks like it's going to be a fun build. Glad to see you're getting back to modelling, and also happy to see you're going to use whatever materials are available to make an interesting model.

Here's the dash. I didn't like the plain flat dash with just the tach, so I cut out an opening and grafted the panel in from a '59 Chevy dash. it's just roughed in right now but it'll get there. :)

The Revell 1960 Impala is a great donor for this. I'm doing the same project only with a Jimmy Flintstone resin body.

Ok, I've got the color on. I used Model Master #28141 Sterling Silver Metallic Lacquer. I plan on using the 1834 Wet Look Clear Lacquer. Should I wet sand before applying the clear or shoot a coat of clear then wet sand? I was going to shoot the clear, wet sand and apply the decals then clear it again. What would you all suggest as the best method? Thanks, Geno.

Sand & polish the clear. Then add decals, clear again, and carefully clean-up the polishing you already did.
