Revell 1957 Chevrolet 150 Black Widow

Here is my Revell 1957 Chevrolet 150 Black Widow race car.

The build is completely box stock, and it went together very well. Any issues you see are purely my lack of ability or talent, and have nothing to do with the kit. Here is an actual Black Widow car I used for inspiration:

Now, onto the model:

Hmm, didn’t notice that mold line before this. Oh, well!

Thanks for looking.



That looks great Jim. The engine bay is a show in itself.


Thanks, Michael.


Very nice!

Love the old school GM Rochester Fuel Injection!

Thanks, Wade.


Well you know I’m going to give you a standing ovation! :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Beautiful build Jim, love it!

Cheers, D

Thanks, D. I had a feeling that you’d like it.


Wonderful Job!!!

Thanks, Mark.


A shame about the mold line, but still a great piece of work.

Have you considered using a bit of panel liner, for the trunk lid?

Thanks, Jesper. Yes, the mold line is kind of a bummer, but too late now.

I considered a panel liner for about 2 seconds, but immediately discounted it as I’d probably screw it up and ruin the entire model.


That engine bay does have alot of OOB detail in it. Looks like the engine has a pretty high parts count to it. Great job on the paint and decaling of this one Jim.


Sorry for the late reply, but I was out of town; and every time I try to sign into KitMaker on different computers it want to create a new account. It’s mildly annoying.

Thanks for the comments. Yes, there are about 40 parts in the engine bay if you build this version, so there is quite a bit of OOB detail. The paint is Tamiya Gloss Black TS-14 & Tamiya Pure White TS-26.
