64 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

I had planned on waiting till 2013 to start a new build, but was bored today, so went ahead and cracked open 2 kits. I will be building the new Revell 69 Nova SS kit, but will be installing the big block chevy from the 67 Chevelle Pro Street kit, instead of the little small block. I am also using the intake, carb, distributor and valve covers from a 70 1/2 Baldwin Motion Camaro pro shop kit. I go the engine built this evening...and will be doing more either this evening (12/24) or tomorrow evening. I plan on painting the Nova white with red interior...haven't seen many 1:1 cars with this combo...but you guys know how things tend to change lol..here is what i got so far...

this is also the first engine that I recall to have a separate fuel pump....was the hardest thing to attach lol

as always..comments and suggestions welcome

I had thought about some red Yenko stripes, but can't find any...so might just go with red stripes on hood and trunk lid....still unsure..will see what it looks like solid white first....I also deleted the vent window...gives it a factory custom look. Will get more pics as soon as possible...thanks again

I got a mock up of how the engine fits...I could almost use the flat hood, but cant lower engine anymore. So I will be using the cowl hood. In the pics the engine is a little crooked (had an engine mount slip on me...but is taken care of now....Also removed the vent window posts after pics were taken...Will probably use the lift blocks to raise rear end a little more than stock....but unsure....more to come soon...thanks and as always, comments and suggestions are welcome..

If anyone knows a good plce to get pics of a white w/ red interior nova..let me know...I cant seem to find any decent pics....

Thanks for that...but i will need the camaro hood decals...since I am not using the flat ss hood with the louvers.....

I was hoping to use this type of decal along with the camaro hood decals...but still unsure if I'm going to clone it...

hey Eric, the full sheet downloaded just fine but the file of the camaro hood is missing just a tiny little corner

nothing i couldnt fix but if you have a full scan that would be sweet :)

you know Tim...just because it has yenko looknig stripes doesnt mean it HAS to be a yenko ;)

diymirage -- that looks a bit lighter than what I had planned on...but it could just be my monitor....the interior is going to be a blood red, but can probably match whatever decals I use.

I think that's about the color of the interior paint....looks good to me....if you can do a set that color, with solid hood decal and Nova 454 on side stripes I'd be happy lol....let me know

not a problem :)

you think the camaro stripes would fit ?

(would be a whole lot easier then adding the camaro hood to the nova decals and getting the scale right)

I think I can just use the nova side decals and the camaro hood decal...but not 100% sure...they look to be the same thing...I know the hood decals are a little different, but mainly cause of the hood shapes...with me using the cowl hood on the nova...the camaro hood decals should fit fine

That is what will work, camaro hood decal on Nova cowl hood
