Let me give you guys an idea of where this Shelby Charger is going.....I cut up the chassis of the kit years ago, I also started scratchbuilding a new frame for it. I think what I'm gonna do now is something halfway inbetween the two. In the first pic you can see the cut up chassis' front subframe and the old scratchbuilt frame.

In this pic I placed a stock chassis from a different kit just for compairison.

I started work on the Charger today, this is my first 1/16 scale build so bare with me, This build will be in the Big Boys section too as well as in Nick Winters Gumball Rally and featured in a slew of video updates on YouTube. My paint color of choice will be Burnished Red mixed by my Mopar Dealer and sprayed thru my airbrush.

Today, I managed to get the engine block halves glued :lol:

First Rule of Italian Driving: What's happening behind you is not important!

That's the way, I remember it. :lol:

When looking, how some of the Italians drive, that seems to be true.

What the heck. I have until the end of the year, right? I hope to have a new air conditioner in my attic/workroom by spring so I can work through the summer this year instead of putting my models on hold for about half the year, so I'm going to commit to this thing with a mid-engined, V-8 powered Corvair coupe.

Count me in and EAT MY DUST! :) :lol: :D :P ;)

Jim, added you to the list.

Tony, those are very minilite esque, 5 lugs too, weird choice for them to put in that kit, I appreciate you taking the time to take that photo for me.

Although power should be a 302 it will get a 351 mustang motor along with the Mustang floor pan and part interior the rest is all Aussie.

With the recent completion of my Hudson Hornet I have started my build for this.

It is an mpc kit. It's pretty nice and has two motor options, even though the instructions only have a call out for one. The other one looks like it would go into the 68 dodge dart.

And where I am starting...

And my super strength super hero holding the motor as it dries. I am planning on box stock with this kit.

Mark if I remember correctly the reason why that kit has 2 engines is because it's actually two kits combined, AMT '68 Roadrunner tooling for the floor pan, suspension and engine. MPC '70 Corronet for the rest. if I remember correctly.

Here is the other two unused intake manifolds.

In a sense it's cool that I have an entire spare motor that I can use with something else.

I just started watching this movie last night. This is going to sound bad but I can't remember if I've ever seen it before. Well I'm hoping to watch the rest tonight and hopefully be inspired. I'm not sure what I'll build but I'm sure it'll have a blue oval on it. :rolleyes:

Mark, that looks like the '69 GTX hemi, think it was in the GTX, might have been the Roadrunner kit.

Dirk, I'll put you on the list as undeceided.
