  1. Does anyone have a scrap 1/25 AMT/Round2 1966 Oldsmobile 442 body in a parts box somewhere?  I have all the parts I need to swap that kit's chassis underneath my newly-purchased '64 Olds Convertible kit, but I still need the inner-front fenders from that '66 442 body. 

     

    Anyone have one that's "junk" (except for those inner front fenders)?  I have parts to trade... thanks!

  2. Steve,

    Thanks for the info, but I'm actually using these decals on a completely different kit project, not on a Revell '66 Goat, and Tom's got just what I need already on the way to me.  Thanks again Tom!  Moderators; this post can be deleted.

  3. I am looking to trade for the (2) 1/25 GTO rear-quarter panel emblem decals (#9) from the Revell 1966 Pontiac GTO kit's decal sheet; just looking for the dark-silver-colored decals that are the letters GTO that mount to the rear quarter panels about mid-fender height at the very rear of the fenders.

  4. Stunning build! Your paintwork is phenomenal. It's a bit of a shame that the Hemi Shaker air cleaner is so large that it hides some many engine details... sure would be fun to have a 1:1 of this build parked inside my garage!

  5. This is my 2nd completion for 2021, although this build actually started way back in the mid/late-1990's...  I decided it was time to drag it to the finish-line.  This is the 1/25 AMT/Ertl 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS454 kit.  Back-story is my wife's best friend in high school, Gigi, (in the late-1970's), was given a used, 1:1 1969 SS396/4-speed in Pale Yellow by her parents for her 17th birthday, (wish I had parents like that).  Gigi drove her car everywhere, and my wife was her constant-companion.  After owning it for nearly a year, Gigi got good enough at driving it well that she occasionally street-raced it against the local high school boys on Friday and Saturday nights, with some success too, as my wife recalls! The local guys said "Gigi" stood for "Guts and Glory" as she displayed both when street racing.

    My wife told me she really liked Gigi's '69 Chevelle and had a lot of fun in it, but her personal-favorite would've been a 1970 in Blue with a Blue interior; hence this build with my wife's nickname on the license plates.   Paintwork is old and rough, but I did add some scratchbuilt details to bring a little life to this build.  Comments always welcome!

  6. Stunning build! Your paintwork looks phenomenal as well as the decal work.  Even without underhood reference I think you nailed that engine and compartment and I think the same thing regarding the chassis... nicely done!

  7. Really nice build! Sure would like to see some underhood pics and also what that T-bird chassis looks like underneath... but please take it inside for those pics!

  8. My parents had 4 family-room "lounge" chairs in that Black-n-White pattern seen at the right-edge of the photo... my dad's poker-playing buddies would come over on Saturday nights for a "late-in-the-evening" poker match, and after drinking Manhattans for a few hours, they'd say looking at those chairs they were sittin'-in might make 'em puke... pretty sure that happened more than a few times!!!
