Supernatural Impala

It's been a while since I've posted here, but I recently finished a long-term project and thought you might like to see it: the '67 Impala from Supernatural. Based on the AMT 2dr HT SS kit, I modified the roof, trunk, doors, hood, interior, dash, chassis, and swapped engines for show accuracy. In other words, pretty much everything here has been reworked. A full writeup of everything that went into it is available here. Comments/criticisms welcome!

I wanted to build that myself but the lack of a 4-door has stopped me.

That's a first rate build Spencer. It's hard to tell the Impala isn't the real thing. The gloss duco looks fantastic. Well done.

Wow that is awesome! I could not tell the difference in a real one and the model. Outstanding work! What did you use to make the pipes more chrome looking?

Thanks! The pipes from the engine to the first junction are aluminum tubing, and the rest of the exhausts system is Model Master Aluminum.

Thats the most beautiful '67 Impala 4 door model I have ever seen.
The quality of your workmanship really shines through.

One great model car right there.

Great car. Great show. Great model. It's easy to do figures and tanks. CARS are HARD.

The more I look at it the more I wish you'd-a pulled a mold of the body before you built the car......

Thanks! BronzeGiant, if it's any consolation, I wish I had done that as well. I'm going to try to make a lesson out of that for my next major conversion project (whatever that might be).
