    Hello members,
    My first post here; I am a fan of clamshell wagons for years, thats why i am crafting this 72 (it has never been officialy released on this scale)
    I am looking for photos of underneath .
    This car will be released as a resin kit when finished.
    Here are some pics. Please, have a look at my album in the gallery.
    (wheels are not definitive, just for mockup ) thanks in advance for your help. IMG_0421.jpeg

    The frame and underside is the same as the sedan up to behind the axle, then the frame rails are slightly different. Exhaust is also different, but a Chevrolet 1972 shop manual should provide excellent detailed drawings of them, of park brake cabling/rigging, etc. And if there are sedan models around this model year, they can provide the necessary floor, door panels, dashes and columns. What did you cast that body from?

    See if you can contact this modeler, Kevin Beanes, to find out where he got this model.

    This body is unique.... i crafted it from a poor non accurate resin cast. I spent more than 250 hours on the whole car including interior. When it’s possible i cast parts from a coupe to win time and then i modify.
    i’ve got a 72 shop manual: nothing interesting, poor photos... photos show a little part of my work
