1/24 '69 Chevy Nova Copa

December 9, 2013 · in Automotive · · 9 · 1.6K

Well I decided to try a little something new for a while. It has been about ten years since I have done my last car so I am a little rusty when it comes to automobiles. I purposefully painted most of the car black because I like the "black on black" look. One of the main reasons I chose this car is because my dads first car was a . My dads was a '65 4 door so it was obviously a little different.

*When I was building this car, I accidentally applied too much pressure while putting the rear wheels on and I blew up the rear axle. So if you notice it is a little crooked that is why.

  1. Nice work Billy, I like it.

  2. Good work done there Billy. I see that some one was busy baking ?
    Hungry work!
    But a great finish.

  3. It doesn't look crooked from here, Billy, just looks like a nice clean build.

  4. very the black wheels...a sleeper

  5. Looks great, Billy! I like the "black-on-black" like you. Seeing this great model (and a few others posted here) makes me interested in doing a car. I haven't done a car model in nearly 50 years. I was always (and still am) more interested in aircraft, but I've also developed an interest in Armor, since I spent so much time in them in my Army career.

    It's all good.
