The Chassis ans the interior are from a revell 1970 Chevelle.















The front for the 1972 Chevelle is from a old AMT kit.

Seems like the aft end of the resin station wagon's roofline is sagging much lower than it should be compared to the ref pics?

Re: 1972 Chevelle Station Wagon 1:25 Resin, Revell and AMT

Looks uber cool! I would recommend to replace headlamps for something more authentic – plastic ones molded with front grille look too simple comparing all other stuff you've done with this masterpiece!
