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.

The red sure looks good. I have the Lindberg kit and haven't seen the AMT one till 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.

A real nice job on this lovely old classic. (The real thing, not the kit :D )
