Well here she is my latest project. It started out as Revell's 65 Corvette.
I scratchbuilt the frame out of styrene stock. The wheel tubs are scratchbuilt from brass sheeting. The engine is Ross Gibson's 737 Thumper motor. The roll cage is scratchbuilt from 1/16 styrene rod. The struts were scratchbuilt from copper tubing (3/32" and 3/64") and styrene. The front crossmember is kit bashed from Revell's 41 Willys.
The bottom hood scoop was cut from a 67 Vette Big Block hood and the top scoop is from Competition Resins. Here are a lot pics!

Thanks for the comments everyone 8)
The tubs will be covered in carbon fiber decals.
The color will be a dark emerald green with a touch of metal flake. Interior will be black with a steel colored cage along with a steel colored frame. Those colors should go good together....I hope!
