Chevy Impala 1959 1/32

Recommended Posts

Here's a 1/32 kit by Gunze Sangyo, painted with Gunze red gold, Vallejo metal colour silver and various acrylic and oil paints. I really enjoyed the kit and hope to find more from this series someday. The dog is a 1/35 Tamiya critter with saddlebags sculpted on.

Mmmmm... a 'Sports Coupe'. They had a different idea of what made a sports coupe in 1950s America, but what a car, what a model. Class; just class.

Thanks very much folks, it was an enjoyable project. I'm going to keep an eye out for their 63 Thunderbird kit.

Fabulous paint and workmanship! I agree with other here that this model could easily pass for a 1/24 -1/25 scale. The Gunze Red Gold was a very good choice, it came out looking very close to the original Chevrolet “Suntan Copper” factory color. Sweet!
