There's a choice of RoStyle wheels or Rallye wheels, i ended up going with the Rallye wheels, i picked out the centre section using Testors steel enamel

The interior was airbrushed with a 50/50 mix of Tamiya rubber black and gloss black

Nice Geoff, but I know there are chassis pics...

It has a separate frame which is very nice.

Floorpan was first primed, then masked off to paint the inner wings and bulkhead satin black, it was masked up again the airbrush the fuel tank using Testors steel, everything was again masked up so the body colour overspray could be added

Revell Chevy Chevelle 396SS 20190723-132001

The centre console was airbrushed the same black mix I had used for the rest of the interior and the chrome trim was picked out using chrome BMF

Revell Chevy Chevelle 396SS 20190721-143418

Once all the interior parts had been painted and detailed, they could now been fitted onto the floorpan

Now that I had finished building up the interior, the separate chassis could now bee fitted to the floorpan,

Revell Chevy Chevelle 396SS 20190729-193942

Revell Chevy Chevelle 396SS 20190730-200120

With the wheels added, that finishes off the main chassis, I now need to find a little time to get the bodyshell painted

Revell Chevy Chevelle 396SS 20190731-182040

But I did still have a little amount of work I could carry on with, the rear bumper and panel and the front grille,

Simply add a drop of the resin into the recess molded into the bumper, add the clear lenses, and set with a UV torch for around 5 seconds

Cheers Curt, hopefully I'll get to build one of my own models soon, then I can post a more in depth WIP, the last model i built was also supplied by Revell (1958 Corvette) and after I've finished the Chevelle I've got a 1/16th VS Beetle to build,again supplied by Revell.

It's all good and very well done. One question though. On one of your work in progress photos on FB, you masked off quite a bit of the chassis just to airbrush the two straps holding the fuel tank. Wouldn't it have been a lot easier to simply brush the straps instead of going through the hassle and the cost of masking?

I really don't do that much painting by brush, I much prefer to use the airbrush,and Tamiya masking tape really isn't expensive.

You can't argue with Dave's brush results though to be fair.

Dave gets some superb finishes, hard to believe most of the work is done using a Hairy stick, I've spent a small fortune over the years on top quality artists brushes, but only use them on the smaller details, I suppose I enjoy airbrushing too much
