Howdy Chaps

After certain pressure (Hello Renier), I've decide to do a build thread.

Revell 56 Chevy Nomad 2 in 1, the California Wheels version with big wheels and lowered suspension.

Actually quite a nice kit for its age, bit of flash but no train smash.

...and of course we need to have at least one party piece, and this is it, going to get rid of the golf cart motor it has an cram in a Corvette 427 motor pale

Ok then...
After quite a bit of huffing and puffing, the 427 does actually fit into the engine bay (much to my surprise). The original kits motor and the 427 are the same length so that was ok, but the width was a tad bigger.

I also replaced the plugwires, looking much better and scratchbuilt wiring looms from plasticcard

All the interior parts have been undercoated and now the great masking and spraying game can begin in earnest...

Howdy.
Bit of an update.
Interior is almost finished.
I downloaded some red urban camo of the interweb and made some decals for the seats and interior trim. Rest of the interior is matt white.

The 427 did actually fit with a bit of gemodifying Very Happy
Theres just enough room for the firewall at the back.

Okay, time to start on the body.

Hey Hey Look at that.

The egine valuse looks good in that colour plus the floor mats make the interior.

Good work Steve

Photo's are a bit kak, but the interior does look better than the photos. just needs a couple more coats of flat to tone the decals down... Very Happy

Howdy....
Ok ive started on the body. the white inserts have been sprayed and gloss cleared, last week, and everything has been taped up now to start the main colour.
The base coat is Tamiya Mica Red which is on at the moment.
Over that im going to spray gloss clear, then over that clear red, then gloss clear again and a final clear red and gloss coat. This, apparently gives the clear red more depth... but we shall see...

The paint look very thick over the side flashes, but its actually covered with masking tape...
more soon
