Another 61 Impala SS Build / Done!
Posted by Johnt on Thursday, June 20, 2019 4:19 PM

I started this build a few years ago and now I want to finish it. This is a test also to see if I can post pictures here I gave up after the Photobucket, so here goes.

No go. :(

Your pictures didn't show, so I presume that you tried to upload them from your computer to the forum.  You still need a photo hosting site.  Do a Google search ( or whatever search engine you like) for photo hosting sites and find the one that works best for you.  I use IMGUR, but there are several sites out there to choose from.

I use Fotki and have been extremely happy since making the switch from Photobucket.

It works a thousand times better than Photobucket ever did!!!

I used Foti also but I only needed it for this forum. I haven't posted in here for a while and was hoping that the procedure had changed.

Thanks. I droped it on the floor and put it back in the box for now. I saw you had problems with yours also. :(

Don't put away yours because someone else can't get theirs together. That makes no sense at all.

If you mean me, I put it away for no other reason because it half fell apart and I upset with myself for dropping it.

This is the exterior color. I had some left from my Mercedes, so I wanted to use it. I like the color, it changes shades in varying light conditions.

G'day Johnt.  Those 61's always look cool, and yours is a very good looking example, nice work.  Your colour selection really works.  Is that the AMT kit?  And where are the wheels from?  Cheers, and thanx

It's a Lindberg kit. The wheels were in the kit.

A picture of it next to the second model I built when I started again in 2013, It's as close to one I owned in 1969 before I left for the military.
