Default 1/25 Pro-Touring 1965 Chevelle

This is a build up of a 1/25 65 Chevelle that I have just started. The only real decision that I've made so far is that the drivetrain will be a fuel injected 502 with a 5 speed trans out of a 90's Camaro.

I intend to two tone the body, but have not made up my mind on the colors. Attached are a couple of photos, I will be updating this on a regular basis and hope to keep the interest of the Lateral-g faithful.

Thanks for the encouragement guys.

With regards to the motor, it is a resin 502 from Ross Gibson. It is a really nice piece. The hard part will be making the induction system.

The wheels are Kranze Cerberus from Aoshima. I really like the look of these wheels on the Chevelle.

Once I settle on a color combo I will be able to kick things into high gear.

I was wondering if that was a Ross Gibson. I've always wanted to try one of those pieces, but havn't had the money when a suitable project came along. I can't wait to see more!

Yeah those Gibson engines looks pretty sweet, my buddy got their 350 TPI but the fitment was horrible, pretty nice detail bu thats about it.
What kind of induction system are you shooting for?

Keep it up!

Other than cleaning up the mating surfaces, I found it to be a pretty good kit. All resin casts, need a little massaging.

As far as induction, I'm thinking of a dual inlet coming from in front of each fenderwell and then mating the two pipes at the plenum. Simple, yet cool looking.
