  1. The box says Orange, but it's white.
  2. The paint is Rustoleum sunburst yellow, right out of the can.
  3. Thanks. I wish I had a better story about the wheels, they're 3d printed and I detail painted them.
  4. This build started with the wheels. I saw them for sale and I had to have them. I didn't realize they were going to be that big, so when I got them I knew they were going to have to go on a big car and this '70 Impala I had in my stash was perfect! I knew I wanted the car to be yellow, so I painted the wheels to match. I also thought the steering wheel would be a nice touch, so I cut it out of a piece of at plastic and painted it with a molotow pen. Everything else came out of the box, I didn't even have to modify the suspension. I just h
  5. Nice job! I like that color. That's a fun kit.
  6. Yeah, I get that a lot.
  7. Thanks. When I built the first issue I couldn't get the door right either and ended up gluing it shut. I don't know if this new issue is different in any way, or if I just have more patients.
  8. I've seen this kit built as lowrider before and they always look great so I wanted to build mine the same way. I lowered the suspension and used wheels and tires from the Cadillac lowrider kit. Besides the license plate, everything else came in the box.

  10. #3 When I opened this kit the exhaust tip had broken off the muffler and I didn't really like it for this build anyway so I drilled a hole in the muffler and used a piece of solder to finish the tail pipe and piece of tubing for the exhaust tip. I also wanted to give the rear a piece of trim under the bumper to help it look more factory so I used a piece of strip styrene cut to the right length. I sanded a notch in the rear trim for exhaust clearance then painted it flat black. I painted the exhaust tip with some chrome paint then installed everything. I also found a l
  11. A friend of mine asked me to build her a pink Escalade with an ivory interior. I built it box stock with custom plates. This is the issue that they mistakenly put the ESV on the box. The box says it's molded in orange, but I'm pleased to report that it's actually molded in white. This issue has a couple differences from the original issue; it has chrome plated plastic exhaust tips instead of the aluminum ones and it has the black frit already painted on the windows. It went together well, just like one would expect from a modern Revell tool. The only complaint I have is the chrome was a little
