Another revell vw rabbit build
Posted by Vagscalemodels on Wednesday, December 16, 2015 8:11 PM

Here's another revell rabbit I'm building if you remember my orange build

 

Chassis and body painted decided to go mopar green 

 

Chrome head color matched block and copper brake lines

 

 

Decided on 16in rs's from scale productions

 

Drilled 2 holes in the rad support and layed some bare metal foil

And coiled a spring from .28 gauge wire to make a hood latch that works

Chromed the rs's and chrome waistline trim with bare metal foil

Spark plug wires added from detail master, and grille and bumpers painted 

Bare metal foil added to grille trim and emblem installed

Exhaust painted with alclads and simulated for heat staining 

Interior 85 percent done and test fitted photo taken with my last build
