'69 Chevy Nova


Recommended Posts










No build thread for this one. It seem I'm getting lazy about making them lately. I got this along with a handful of others from a buddy years ago. He had used a testors green from the rattle can. Well, I like blue so I blew it all apart and stripped everything. 

I used craft acrylic metal flake paint mixed 2:1 with alcohol and shot at 20psi. The clear is 4 coats of Duplicolor.

The interior is painted with my gloss mix of black acrylic. And the details are from a chrome pen. The carpet and package tray is black flocking.

I removed the 350 and wedged in a 396 which I cast in resin. I added carburetor linkage, a throttle cable, heater hoses, fuel lines, plug wires with boots and a rubber radiator hose. I also used some wire ends for the velocity stack and exhaust tips.

I made all the glass from blister packaging. You'll see there are no wipers, side mirrors or door handles. These are lost. When I get a new set, I'll put em on.

Thanks for looking
