Bandit Resins 1971 Chevelle Heavy Chevy - October 21 update


Recommended Posts

Is acrylic a standard for interior? I am still learning modeling. My day job is painting/art with a preference of acrylic for my big canvas stuff, so Id love to work with it. For me, its the easiest to control in tight situations. But...assuming this is acrylic paint specific for modeling

At first I was kind of sorry you didn't leave in primer grey (I'm a rat-rod fanatic and I just can't help myself... :D ), but after taking a few more looks at it in that wonderfull green color I changed my mind. Great work you've done so far, Marc!

For those of you interested in these wheels, I offer them - along with around 20 other styles- on Facebook, and at Sylvania / Toledo NNL, Detroit NNL, NNL east, and various other shows / swap meets in the Northwest Pa. area, as availability permits. Look me up on Face book as Steven Zimmerman. I do not have a website, as yet..........'Z'

Looks great, good color, gotta love those deep dished rally wheels... Everything's great! I miss that deep dished wheel look, nowadays every car has "flat looking" positive offset wheels,even the muscle cars... So sad.

I've been missing your builds Marc, welcome back! I like the subject, since I've always thought that '71 Chevelle is much better than '70. Nice paint work also, excellent color choice. The interior looks sharp too. Those wheels just don't fit into this car, but that's just me, I have never liked any bigger wheels than 15".

Several have privately messaged me and asked how they can reach me on facebook. Apparently there are a lot of "Steven Zimmerman's" on facebook. I am a member of the following modeller's groups; look me up there :Kelli's in scale salvage.....Layitlow Model Section Group....Model Cars...The Outsiders Model Car Club. I belong to about 40 others, but these are the ones I visit most. Marc is also a member of the Outsiders...........Steven Zimmerman aka the'Z'man

I like the color, too, Marc, and I've got a question for you. Did you use a silver, gold, or whatever under the Citrus Yellow, or is it just sprayed over the primer? Does the Citrus Yellow need something metallic underneath to give it the full effect?

Just sprayed it directly over Tamiya Grey Primer.

Quick update for tonight. I've finished detailing the front of the body, including headlights, turn signals and grille.
