Top shelf modelling- and the Rally wheels work well too.

Engine wiring and overall look is the highlight, but interior is good too. I wish model companies would make steering wheels thinner though. I suppose breakage in removing from plastic sprue makes the thickness necessary. Anyway, good work on a Chevy I might otherwise pass up, thanx for posting good fotos!

Thanks Coyote.

It was a fun build.. I built it after a real 61 that I owned many years ago..Only my original one did not have the Rally Wheels as the model did , just black rims w/small ( poverty ) hub caps..

Next build I plan to get < on the wild side > with it..Stay tuned ....


Thanks Again Tom
