Heavy Duty Chevelle!

n Anders Isaksson

Detta är min Chevrolet Chevelle 454 SS (årsmodell 1970). Byggsatsen är från AMT (skala 1/25). För att ge intryck av en sliten gammal trotjänare har bucklor gjorts på flera ställen runt karossen tillsammans med rosthål som har gjorts runt hjulhusen. En hobbyfräs användes för att tunna ut plasten inifrån, och därefter skars hålen upp med en vass kniv. Karossen målades därefter i bleka mattröda nyanser och en sista sprutning med khaki avslutade bygget.

  This is my Chevrolet Chevelle 454 SS (model 1970). The kit came from AMT (1/25th scale). To give the impression of weared-off oldie I made several bulges and some corroded-through holes around wheels. A grinding bit was used to thin down the plastic from the inside, after which the holes were simply cut out with the sharp hobby knife. The body was painted in shades of faded red color. The final spray was given in matt olive.
