67 Chevelle Custom Build featuring LSM Detailing Parts.
Posted by 67impala427 on Thursday, July 27, 2017 11:47 PM

Since the highjacking of the stored photos by Photobucket I realized that I hardly have anything on the forum that actually has pics of my builds and products.  Rather than try  to restore the pics to all of the stuff I had previously posted I decided to just start a completely new build.  This is my first completely new build since 2009.  Sorry guys been real busy with my resin and detailing parts business.  This kit is the AMT '67 Chevelle Street Machine.  It will feature my LSM Detailing products and 3 Resin Hoods that I offer.  I begin with the rear tubs that I enlarged for the larger profile tires and lowered stance.

I cut the original tubs and made larger ones out of styrene.  After test fitting the body with the new tubs on the chassis the larger wheels/tires with the lowered stance is just how I like it.

You mean just a plain flat Malibu hood with no vents?  Never thought about it but a good idea. Do you have a donor hood to offer?  If so pm me.

Thanks for your comment and thanks for your business.  I look forward to serving you again.  I'll try to get more progress and pics up as soon as possible.

Here's a picture with the modified height.  I'll try to get some chassis and suspension pics up soon.

These are the hoods that will be used on this build.  LSM Resin '67 Chevelle Outlaw, Stinger and L88 Hoods.

The front and rear suspension will consist of various kit and scratch built parts as well as some modified diecast parts that I found on eBay.

Once the suspension is complete the ride height will be roughly as pictured.  Also, these are the 3 hoods that will be displayed with this build.

Looking great...

Do the hoods come close to fitting the Revell version?

Yes, in fact they fit quite well.  I sell them often for the Revell kit.
