I just finished this one yesterday. I used a vintage AMT kit to start, no mods, just shot it with some left-over Testors White Lightning spray. Parts box decals, cleared & waxed. Just the body, still hooking up the slot-car guys.

Hey Derrick. That turned out great. Too bad not many people will see it here. Is it shown elsewhere in this forum ? Not much traffic here. Anyway, good job as always.

Looks good, Derrick. What is that on top of the hood scoop?

I have one of those grilles in my stash- plan to use it on the '76 reissue.
Anyway- that looks awesome! Try not to bang it up too much racing it. B)
