The paint is Testors 2 part lacquer (base color coat and clear). The decals are from the Revell '67 Chevelle ProStreet kit.
The body for this build is a combination of the AMT '57 Chevy cab and Cameo bed with an AMT '55 Chevy grill. The hood is a resin part from PSF Hobbies. I glued the resin hood to the fenders before I cut the front end to tilt.
The tubs, tires, wheels, chassis and the entire drivetrain are from the Revell '67 Chevelle ProStreet kit.
The wing is made from aluminum tubing, aluminum plate and sheet plastic.
The parachute pack is handmade from Balsawood and satin material.
Nothing special under the hood besides basic wiring and plumbing. Pieces of aluminum tubing from the firewall down to the chassis help keep the tilt hood fitting well everytime it's opened and closed. You can also see the upper radiator braces coming off of the support bars.
Here's a shot of the Revell '67 Chevelle ProStreet chassis. Only minimal modification was needed to get it to fit.
