Revel 1955 Chevy Pro Mod
March 27, 2016 in Cars & Motorcycles
I built this one a few years ago. It’s based on Revell’s 1/25 1955 ProMod Chevy kit. I had finished a 1/72 Hasegawa F/A-18C in the “Digi Bug” scheme of VMFA-314, and thought it would be interesting if the United States Marine Corps sponsored a drag racing team with a car painted similarly.
I didn’t add much to the basic model other than some wiring and plumbing; the kit itself is rather well detailed straight from the box.
The paint scheme uses Model Master enamels in Light Ghost Gray, Dark Ghost Gray, Medium Gray/Blue and Dark Gull Gray. I made the Marine Corps decals on my printer, with a couple of hints to Marine Corps history among them. The sponsor decals for the fenders are from the kit.
I gave the model to a friend of mine who served in the Marine Corps in the late 80’s and early 90’s.
