The bright sunny day is starting to become a little cloudy and thunder can be heard in the distance. The wind is picking up in force and the white fluffy clouds are getting dark and grey. The ground is starting to rumble and shake, it is starting to rain really hard and the wind is blowing with hurricane force! Lightning is hitting the ground and the thunder can be heard overhead! Oh no! It can't be...it just can't be! mrmike is building...gasp...another Chevy!
Yes, I am building another Chevy! This time, it is the Revell 1962 Chevrolet Impala 409 Special Edition kit #85-4246 I still love my Mopars and Fords, but I am in need of building something a little different this time. Whenever I build a GM product, it turns out really nice, so I am hoping for another great build this time.
I was originally going to paint this in red, but I already have 3 red builds nearing completion. This build will be painted with Dupli-Color T 155 Light Blue Metallic with a matching interior.
The body in this kit is crisply molded with only two mold lines near the C-pillars to contend with.
I am going to use the steel wheels and dog dish hub caps from the kit with a larger rear tire from my parts box to give the Impala a little rake.
More to come...
