1/25 AMT '61 Chevrolet Impala SS


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, this is the final reveal for this very old re boxed kit. I think it was kitted originally by Lindberg, back in the mist of time, and re booted by Round 2 model company, with a few improvements I guess I should have bare metal foiled the chrome trims, but instead used Molotow chrome, brushed freehand. This was quick, but not the sharpest of lines, but I can live with it. Overall not too bad of a build, I detailed up the engine bay with some chrome parts from my spares box, just to give it a bit of life, not really a show car, I wanted it to look a bit used. I had a can of sign writers white enamel paint on my shelf so I used it to paint the white wall tyres; also scratch built the twin aerials on the back of the car using some nylon bristles from an old sweeping brush. The beach boys wrote a song about this car "My 409". Well I better go and polish that chrome, bye for now.

Nice, an excellent result there indeed. I use a molotow chrome pen instead of bmf also. 👌🏼

Thanks,i think the chrome pen paint matches the plated kit parts very well,bmf in comparison tends to look much duller in finish,and looks out of place at this scale.

It's not often you manage to get a sentence like that in a song! 

 

Very nice modelling there. The colour suits the car and the era perfectly.

LOL ! Yes i actually shot a video of the model on my turntable with that tune as background music,pity i can't release it on youtube due to copywrite issues,but it was fun to do all the same.
