1966 Chevy Chevelle Wagon – Revell – WIP

Here is a project I almost started more times than I can count. I can go through my project pictures and see where I pulled it out, and later put it away. Rinse and repeat. This time around, I’d like to think I’m going to get started! For some reason, the ’66 Malibu/Chevelle is one of my favorite years for the name. For a model kit, building the wagon version is just plain fun! I think my earlier hesitations revolved around not knowing how I wanted to finish it. I did settle on a color a couple of years ago. That helps.

Here are my plans:

Tamiya Titanium Gold paint for the color.
Plamoz Z28 wheels/tires
Plamoz Z28 brake kit
Clearly Scale LS engine
Possibly Model Car Garage photoetch set

I haven’t settled on an interior color. Black would be a nice contrast for the light exterior color.

I didn’t want to start body prep until I had the wheels and the engine. Having to rework the body to make them fit “after” it is painted is not something I wanted to do. Once I get all of the parts, I’ll dive into this project.
