2019 new project: 1955 Chevy Nomad Custom
Posted by PAOLO on Wednesday, January 02, 2019 8:29 AM

hi to all and Happy New Year from Italy!!!

Here some shots about my first 2019 project; hope you like it.

1) engine - I moved the alternator and rebuilt the pulleys and belt with plasticard; added the accelerator cable with its return spring (the only part that together with the engine will be seen when the work will be finished);

Colored engine with the chosen colors

2) front seat - I removed all the details and I started the construction to simulate more modern leather seats with a different design. In the photos you can see the various steps.

At the moment I still have to finish the work.

3) general photos - you can see the engine housing and the final car set-up (only slightly retouched). The alloy wheels are contained in the kit box

Some little step forward...

made handles in pure Kindig-it design style;
made the internal panels of the engine compartment

Next step will be the bonnet hinges and some cable on the engine...

Those seats look very comfortable.  Nicely done interior
