  • Chevelle Wagon

    I started with the red "Daredevils" series release of this casting from a year or two ago, ground/sanded/filled the hood until it resembled a non-SS hood as closely as I could get, stripped it, painted the black plastic base silver, and drybrushed the interior & then added paint details to the dash and the auto parts in the cargo area. The wheels are Matchbox Premiere/Collectibles Impala 9C1 pieces painted to look like full wheel covers & the axles narrowed slightly.

    I've since paint-prepped the body and gotten it back apart, and will be using British Racing Green hobby paint to approximate factory GM Fathom Green, before I hand-paint the assorted fine details. Progress to come.

    A great casting for customizing and restos. The biggest work is ridding the hood of the SS bulge. I got one I started and threw it to the side after tiring of the grinding and sanding. LOL

      It is definitely a lot of work. Still got the abrasions on my hand from this and the '59 hearse.
