AMT 65 Chevelle Wagon & Model T Dragster


Yeah Nah

Recommended Posts

Just finished this set. The 65 Chevelle Wagon kit is not a bad one but the alleged 327 and engine bay cries out for some major improvement that I'll look at with a future build (maybe). Tyres and tools are from various sources while the trailer and hitch is from the MPC 76 Chevy Caprice. Chopped 'T' dragster is from a Round 2 'Tall T' Double Kit issue from a while back. 

Thanks for looking!

Beautiful work Garry!  The Coupe and trailer look very nice but the wagon got my attention immediately, one of the best builds of this kit I have seen.  The detailing is exceptional …how did you do the emblems and script on the body?

Thanks Pete. The script is Warhammer silver acrylic paint lightly brushed on. The beauty of this paint is any boo-boos can be picked off with a toothpick after it dries.

I agree with everyone else, this is a beautiful tow rig for a weekend outing at the drags. The paint finish and the body trim on the wagon are a real standout. The trailer has a good realistic finish on it. The chopped top T coupe looks great and cleanly detailed as well.

Great combo there Garry, it looks very period correct. The 65 Chevelle looks very similar to the Aussie 65 Holden HD station wagon, perhaps as they are both GM products. Really well done and thanks for sharing. 

Cheers, 

David. 😎👍Screenshot_20231208-215740_Google.jpg.3ed0bc6506a5d6c32c36f91d6f08e790.jpg
