  1. Looking good Bob. I got side tracked from my 50 Chevy 3100, but hope to get back to it soon.
  2. Just started working on this, no photos yet. I'm thinking of going gloss black on it. Maybe stick on a number 3. LOL.
  3. Thanks guys. Yea I need to touch up some of trim parts. Dang shaky hands.
  4. Thanks Bob. It is done and posted in the under glass section. I'll be starting on the 1950 Chevy truck in a few days.
  5. Call it done, warts and all. Fun little kit.
  6. Coming along. One thing to note is the front and rear body panels are molded in with the chassis, you can either cut them off and glue to the body or mask off when painting. I chose to mask.
  7. Looks really nice. Great work. My first car at age 17 was a 66 Impala SS 396, I hope to find a kit in the near future and try to replicate it.
  8. Thanks guys. Taking a few days break, then on to the 50 Chevy.
  9. Paint is on. I need to highlight the trim parts............
  10. I'm calling it done, warts and all. I think maybe I have improved since my first 2 kits after being away from the hobby for about 30 years. Need to improve my painting. You can't see in these photos but I did wire the engine with plug wires, something I had not ever done before. You can see a better photo of the engine in the work in progress section.
  11. 1950 Chevy. I'm going to try and deviate a little from a basic build. Looking at maybe some retro red line tires and mags. I have a 350 Chevy engine I want to try and install if it doesn't require too much fitting, don't want to get in over my head and mess up the whole kit.
  12. Finishing up, just like a few more bits. Next photo will be under glass. Just a basic build, but I'm satisfied with it.
  13. Have not got started on it yet as I'm trying to finish a 65 chevy pickup but the weather has not been good for painting. Hope to start on it this week.
  14. Wow, looks great. How do you guys get the dash so detailed, especially the speedo.
  15. Looks great. I like your photo technique, right there at ground level. What are you using for the photos?
  16. Thanks Bob. My paint job doesn't look too good, but I'm not going to worry about. The weather here is just too hot and humid to paint.
  17. Looking good. My first car was a 66 Impala SS 396 I got when I was 17, I'm 70 now. I'm looking for a kit to replicate it. Didn't Revell make a 66 Impala kit?
