Body of Evidence
Posted by Tanker-Builder on Monday, November 16, 2020 10:17 AM

Hi Ya'll;

    This is about the car from Supernatural. A 67 Chevy Right? Well, not to pick nit, but it's so wrong. I looked the body over carefully before I started the build. Well, first off Y' all know what the base of the " B" pillar means? Right? There is supposed to be a slight valley there between the roof and the fender top edge. Where'd it go? It sure wasn't on my car!!

    Now the second irregularity. Did Ya'll catch the Boo-Boo on the front fenders? The fender cap angle should almost ( note; I said Almost ) match the angle of the hood, Yup, they are round as looked at from the side. Next irregularity: Look at the hood. Carefully now. What's wrong there? The power Bulge Portion is supposed to continue down the front. Granted, not as a standout feature but to give a more continous line to that contour! Ain't there!

    Lastly, and most importantly. Look at how deep the window trim goes into the frame area. In a miniature of this scale that distance from the outer surface of the car to the glass should NOT be that deep. The inset of the glass looks to toy-like!

       Be careful too around the Wheel opening surround. It almost totally disappears on my sample on the rear fenders Both Sides! It should be a thin line of chrome going all around and sticking out enough to put foil on without a problem. Ain't happening! You may have to work those out too.

    All in all a lot of innacuracies for a touted much needed model. I wish they would do a four door 72 Buick Electra 225 ( The famous " Duece and a Quarter" ) That was such an imposing and noticeable four door. And do it right. Speaaking of four doors. In closing, I would like to see someone in the "Woody" vein do a really nice FORD Country Squire Wagon!

      Actually if you think about it. I did say it might be the model I have. I haven't seen any other complaints like mine. I just thought I would give a heads up so if anyone got a body like this.

Yeah I know.  Just making note. It may not be perfect but no kit is.

Ah! So True;

 Funny though, The one two door I have is that one that was special to Hobby Town. Man, that body was smack on perfect from the get go!. Are you painting yours Maroon ? Mine is going to be Firemist Emerald Green!

      Straight from the Auto Body Shop Supplier! It's that beautiful deep, deep green Metallic. Tis a shame they can't be consistant isn't it?

Yes mine is maroon.  My 4door body is as accurate as the 2door I have in the works.
