1964 Pontiac GTO 1:43 scale - custom project
Posted by PAOLO on Thursday, November 29, 2018 4:14 AM

Hi to all, here my new project on the bench.

I was inspired by a pontiac made by Kindig it design, that here in Italy we can see via Sky tv, named Salt Lake Garage series.

I start from a commercial die cast model and inspired by the '65 Pontiac gallery on Kinding website, i decide various modification.

I updated all the interiors, building everything with the plasticard and modifing the two bumpers.

I lowered the trim and replaced the wheels with a set for the Alfa Romeo.

Here some pictures, now i have to plan some other minor modification and then, I can move on to the painting stage

 '64 Pontiac GTO - general interior view

'64 Pontiac GTO - interior side panel

'64 Pontiac GTO - front interior general view

'64 Pontiac GTO - general view of lower trim

'64 Pontiac GTO - detail of the lowered trim

'64 Pontiac GTO - old and new side interior panel WIP

Final update, here the final results!!!

Feelings are like scents: The more they are analyzed, the worse they smell.
