AMT's 69 Chevelle SS, painted Chevrolet Rallye Green. Boy, wouldn't it be great to have a new mold of these cars?

Nice clean build. Looks like the scripts are pretty crisp, what method did you use?
Engine compartment real nice!

Thanks again for the nice comments. Brad, the color was a correct factory color for 1969, #79 Rallye Green Poly. It seemed to be more common on Camaros that year, but Chevelles also looked good with it. I used Testors Boyds Bright Green, which is extremely close to the factory color, and very close to Mopar's #999 Rallye Green. Craig, if you mean the "SS 396" scripts on the body, I used Keith Marks decals over the molded in scripts.

Sweet! I also would like to see a NEW tool of this car. I have The old AMT kit, and some Fred Cady Yenko decals. Some day I'll get around to it.

Lee, I've built half a dozen of that old AMT kit, each time I do, they drive me crazy. Next one I do, I'm planning on using the chassis, running gear, firewall and radiator from the AMT 69 Olds 442. Much better detail, and the chassis fits without any mods. Be very careful with the Fred Cady decals. I used them on a 69 Hugger Orange Yenko Chevelle I built, and it took 3 sheets to get them to work. His decals are beautiful, but extremely fragile, and will curl up and fold over themselves without any provocation. You almost have to use a decal solvent, since using them without it results in air bubbles under the decals. And the decal solvent ( Micro Sol and Micro Set is what I use) is what makes the decals curl up and fold over. I usually dilute the solvent 50/50 with water when I use Cady decals, and even that won't remove all the bubbles every time. You just have to be real careful. I buy 2 sets of each I plan to use now, since I know at least some will get ruined.
