I finally have gotten around to posting some new models that I have recently completed.  This is a 1966 Nova from an AMT "Resto Rod" kit.   The kit contained 3 possible versions - stock, custom/race and a set of modern tires/wheels/seats for the resto rod.  I chose to build this one as a basic stock version but I used the custom/race engine and the modern tires & wheels for the way I wanted it to look.  The body is painted with Model Master Tropical Turquoise lacquer with a white interior.  I only did the bare bones minimal chrome & BMF on the car.  Not a bad kit for its age; however, there was a bit of a warp in the body that showed up in final assembly especially with the fit of the front grill/bumper. Not too bad - I hope you all enjoy!
