1961 Chevrolet Impala Convertible
The base of this model is Lindburg's 61 Impala SS kit to which the body was partly de-trimmed and the rear lights were Frenched. The suspension on the model was lowered by 2mm with the cast plastic coil springs replaced with brass wire coil springs. The engine bay has been wired and plumbed throughout whilst the bonnet is fitted with working etched hinges from HML Models. The wheels are Vielside Andrews Racing rims from Fujimi with plastic drilled disc's fitted behind also from Fujimi.
The body has been sprayed in a two tone scheme with Tamiya's Silver Leaf and Light Gun Metal then finished with Tamiya's Clear. The bumpers have been re-chromed using Alclad Chrome after stripping the plating and cleaning up the mould lines. The remaining chrome trim on the body has been covered using Bare Metal Foil.
