Scale I Build

Found 1 result

  1. Here is my version of Bill Jenkins Red and White 66 nova. I started with an old original stock release AMT kit that was already built by a friend. So i took it apart and rebuilt it! I converted the car to a Base Chevy II nova rather than a SuperSport. Grumpy's car was NOT a Super Sport. I added rocker mouldings and side trim with evergreen strips, Sanded off all the seat pattern and added a parts bin bench seat with some cloth pattern decals. then tried to make it look more accurate with some guages, radio delete, heater delete, 4 speed shifter, etc. Underhood i should have painted the engine all black in true Grumpy style, but i thought it would wash out all the detail. I changed over the valve covers to some better proportioned ones from the parts box. I took the SS off the grill and reconfigured the tailpanel with a custom made NOVA decal to hide all the SS stuff. Wipers are deleted, i used decals for the cowl vent lines and opened up the doorhandles. The decals are a mix of Slixx and Gofer. Wheels are parts box painted with Molotow(i know i know should have left them silver but they look so good chrome!). Paint is Ancient Dupont Centari single stage Ember red and Ermine white. I ended up making the GT-1 decal and the Racemaster decal because they were not included on either decal sheet. The stance of the car had to be altered considerably to get it right. Im happy with the way it turned out. There was so many little changes needed to make it a more accurate replica of the real car, but it was worth it! Thanks for Looking
