’64 Chevy Pickup Fleetside – Revell kit – doors [1]

January 13, 2014

by Seb Perez

After a break of several weeks, I’m back. This time with a new (sub)project which will be part of the farm diorama I’m working on.

This is going to be an old farm pickup, based on a ’64 Chevy C10 Pickup Fleetside in 1:25 scale from Revell. I decided to improve many things on this kit, such as opening the doors, cut and rebuild the be fender’s interior and a few more things.

Here a few pics of the door cutting and frame making process.

After cutting the doors, the door frame needs to be built from scratch. It might look complicated, it’s but a very straight forward process using several layers of styrene sheets (o,5 mm and 1 mm )

Thanks… .

Hi Budhi, I have no idea, I’ve never done that. Find pictures of the real lamborghini hinges and replicate them in scale. That should work.
