Nice car! How about a period racer?

Full-on custom, body only. Filled roof/doors shut, Jimmy Flintstone style. It would cost less for someone to buy another kit for chassis and interior than to buy a complete resin kit...or just use parts from

If anyone wants a stocker, they can get the metal original off eBay.

I agree Lee...

I plan on filling all of the trim grooves, roof insert, and gluing the doors closed. The trunk lid? Not sure yet.

BTW, by looking at the time you posted this, I guess you didn't go the the race today? :(

That sure would be a cool resin body.

BTW I just noticed that I did a terrible job of editing my earlier post on the phone. That unfinished sentence should read "...or just use parts from the stash."

I did not go to the race. The old friend with the extra ticket sent a text on Friday night asking if I still wanted to go, then I never heard back from him. He's back to "a guy I know" status.

Jimmy Flintstone already casts such an animal- it's a full on custom Airflow with a sealed hood and the windows cast shut called the Rareflow. It was also sold as a Testors/Model Master kit. It has a really goofy looking roof, but if you replaced it with a more conventional looking roof it would work great for a custom Airflow.

OH YEAH! I have one of those. IMHO, there's no harm in having 2 custom Airflows on the market.

I'd have to agree with that, Lee. :)

I thought I had seen something vaguely similar to an Airflow, thanks for refreshing my memory fellas ;)/>

I do think though that a basically "stock bodied" Airflow would be desireable...

I've got this thing stripped, now in the process of filling everything.

Huh- guess it's a bit closer to 'not stock' than I remembered...

This looks like an interesting build. I'll keep an eye on it.

And the Flintstone Rareflow might as well be as a paperweight. It's a solid brick.
