One of my favourite parts of a car kit is the interior. Since this is where most of us spend the our time with our cars, I like to make it as authentic as possible within the confines of what the kit gives me. Usuall, car interiors aren’t bad. However, the interior on the ’64 Chev Fleetside I’m working on is, well, a bit confused.

The problem is that it has features of both the standard and the “Custom” cab, so getting everything sorted out took a bit of work! Thankfully, I was able to mostly get it looking like it should, and now the Fleetside at least has an “office” to work with!

Check it out below; feedback is welcome as always!

Super job Adam, love the dash detail and the tone and textural variations on the bench.
Top blog content as always, love your commentary style.

Thanks guys, for the compliments on both the build and the blog!

My brother recently got his hands on a, I believe, '60 Chev pickup from Revell; they actually have the sail plane with the nearly correct pattern on it. I wonder why they changed the mould there?

The pastels on seats do help make them look a little more "plush" while still giving an indication of use, without filth, I think.
