1963 Chevy Bel Air resin conversion

Posted · Report post

This was a fun build that I did for a friend that has a 1:1 63 Bel Air just like this. The body is from MCW Resins & it's painted in a Honda Tahitian Green. Wheels & tires are from Pegasus. I used the Revell 63 Impala kit for a parts donor. This resin was actually a Biscayne so I had to remove the upper side trim & add the trim pieces around the tail light cove. Hope you enjoy.

Love the craftsmanship, love the color and paint. Not a fan of the giant wheels. Not on this car at least.

THanks for the comments guys. I thought I'd show you a photo of the real car that I was building the replica of.

I'm not a fan of the big wheels either, but they are exactly what is on the real car.

Other than those wheels (ICK! 20-inchers belong on pre-WW2 cars and big trucks), I really like this one.

Super clean build, and quite fortunate that Pegasus made the exact wheels for the replica. That about never happens...

Very nice replica. There were a lot more Belairs and Biscaynes than Impalas on the street back in the day.
