'67 Chevelle SS 396

This was my first time venturing into 1/25. I had put it off forever, since all my others are 1/24 and I wanted them to match. But I bit the bullet anyway, and the difference is minuscule really. This definitely ain't the greatest but hey, first for everything. First time doing bare metal foil window trims too.. I normally freehand paint them. Don't have any outdoor photos, it's gone midnight haha. Maybe tomorrow. :)

My work desk really needs a tidy too.

Gonna post another build I did, a Mugen CRX and then that'll do for tonight.

Comments and criticisms appreciated, cheers!

Great looking Chevelle. I have had this kit in my collection since the first issue. It's somewhere in the garage with about 200 more built, started and unbuilts. Some day I hope to have my own space to build and store models. By the way, your build space is very tidy compared to mine, and I just cleaned up.

Great job on the 67 Tomo! YOu did a good job on the Bare Metal Foil for as first timer as well. It takes some practice to really be comfortable with BMF but your work looks like it was a seasoned pro. Can't wait to see what you do next.

By the way....if my workbench were that tidy I'd be a happy camper :D

I have to say the outside pictures do it more justice! Nice clean build and details.

I would hate for you to see my work area if you think yours is messy! :D

Really nice. Are you sure you're just a year into this hobby? Keep it up, you've got the talent.

Cheers lads!

And cheers Tom, yeah it's only been a year, but I owe it all to things I've found on the internet. I probably still wouldn't be spray painting if it weren't for it!
