Modelhaus Resin 1/25 scale 1968 Chevrolet Impala SS 427

March 17, 2022 · in Automotive · 9 ≡

My all time favorite big Chevrolet. This kit I had since 1995. Plagued with MANY issues with primer and paint adhesion. Never had any issues with painting Resin casts but this one. Followed all steps in prep +. I finally finished this kit this year. Has been sitting in the box painted for years. The chrome basically fell off the rear bumper. One day I will send the bumper out to be re chromed, in the mean tome it BMF! Painted in lacquer GM production color "Island Teal Metallic". This re pop from Modelhaus is from a promo model.

  1. Another nice Chevvy, Thomas @moparpep
    May I advise to not upload all these models at once.
    Even your own presentations of these great kits drop down the headlines very quickly.

  2. My favourite of all your Chevys, reminds me of that Don McLean song American Pie. Took my Chevy to the Levy, etc.

  3. I’d normally agree with John and Tom above, but at least you’ve pushed all those military models off the front page, a good thing in my view, but not many others would share that view.

  4. Great big Chevy, Thomas! Love the paintwork!

  5. Nice work on all of these, Thomas. My dad had ‘58 and ‘66 Impalas, and I currently drive a ‘17. I’m pretty sure this one is the same color as the ‘66. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Great looking build. Impala’s are wonderful sleds. By boss has a ‘65 back in the the day.
