1/25 REVELL 1957 CHEVY

June 2018

Finished this build of early 70s kit from Revell, recently reissued as a ‘Ed Roth’ boxing. Inspiration was recent DVD viewing of American Graffiti.

Main paint is custom mix of Tamiya Acrylic White with a bit of blue and green added. Aiming for a 50s pastel look, this was airbrushed on using 0.4 tip in Harder and Steenbeck Ultra. Turquoise is a Games Workshop colour. When body was dry is was smoothed with Micro Mesh 4000, 6000, 8000 and 12000 cloths.

It looks a bit scrappy, opening doors and hood\trunk are good features but alignment leaves a lot to be desired. Chrome trim is by Molotow pen, great addition to the modellers armoury but I made a bit of hash of trying to pick out some of trim so it looks a bit rough
