Chevelle 67' Pro Street


Recommended Posts

After modeling 6 airplanes(and 1/4 too), I decided to do something different. So, naturally I chose this car. I set out researching and came up with a color scheme from the wonderful world of the internet. I went with this 2 color scheme with black and orange which I think will do nicely for this drag racer.

Originally they have the car pictured yellow with optional stripes for the side. But I thought that was too boring and I wanted to make it complicated for some reason.

Here is everything straight out of the box(sort of). As you can see, I got ahead of myself and painted already. More on that later.

Most of these decals I plan on not using, as the red color is the wrong color and probably would not look very good with the orange top. Maybe I'll use the white or something. I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.

These are the parts I painted so far. I finished the engine bay, hood, radiator panel thing, back wall of the engine bay, and hood hinges. I started to paint the body but only got so far since my airbrush started to act weird. Guess I got to deep clean it again😖. Till next time! y4m2dqPe2t_NwPmnsWaOgr_pTTSB6Ei_u-Qrm33h

Shame about the air brush playing up, but this looks a very promising start. You say you got ahead of yourself, but I think most car builders would start with spraying the body first before moving onto building it up so you can consider yourself to be building it up the 'proper' way :)

It's been a long time since I first started this model. Sometimes I find I have way too many hobbies...

Anyway, I'm still having airbrush problems but now I have a few ideas of what it might be. The paint is uneven due to the airbrush problems. I've done some more painting with the orange and cut a hole in the hood for the engine. I still need to do a couple more coats of paint. I'll keep yall posted on whatever happens next! :bye:
