Volvo Amazon 1962

Dan, great modeling as usual!

These Volvos are becoming more and more rare nowadays...

Here's a photo I made of a radically but quite tastefully customized Amazon, perhaps it could give some ideas for your customized version.

Thanks again people!

nb - well i would not venture so far. The split grille is very characteristic and i will keep it, maybe shave door handles and lettering, slap some wide rims, slam it a bit and perhaps a custom 2 tone. But thanks for the pic!

A radically different project (from my usual stuff that is) has kept me away from my old school models, but next week i hope to present updates.

Hello again, back to the Amazon project, here is the 2door 1966 122 S:




Mildly chopped top, shaved emblems and door handles, fender skirts:



And a hardtop version, restyled shorter roof, longer deck, frenched head- and taillights:

LOST, Audipower, maul, FlashG - a big thank you.

Niko and David - the hardtop is part of the commission and i tried to go far while still keeping the Volvo look. I played with the grille mesh and went as far as modeling a Continental kit and a Buick-like sidetrim and front parking lights, which made it look very American, like a small DeSoto:




I might consider splitting the body into a 2tone -- 3tone in fact, leaving the 3rt color to the roof -- but maybe it has gone far enough. What do you guys think?

Looks even better then the orignal, 3 color would fit the car very vell I think.

Flashg: Guess why Im going to talk to my freind Brendan about this car. ;)
