Going to be a really interesting build to watch.  Definitely a sweet concept.

I build models because I can't afford the real thing!

Hi everyone, There is my first try on a resin kit. I have chose the Jimmy Flintstone chevy suburban. I have take the AMT '57 camoe for the part I need. I want to put a set of Aoshima professor VF1 20'' wheel on it.

Chevy suburban

I have work on the interior, I used the habitacle of the cameo and cut the rear section and made a new floor for the rear section and reuse the rear part I have cut before for the rear section and I fabricate the side rear section with the wheel housing.

inside mod

more inside

inside wheel

I begin to work on a trim of balsa wood for the upper section of the interior

There is a picture I found for the inspiration!!

And there is the image modified with a stripe on the side!!
