I'm working on an easy, fun build. It's a promo so there's no motor. I scratchbuilt the hood out of evergreen sheet plastic and half-round. You can see the "Bullhorn" exhaust that will exit the front fenders, sitting on the ground next to the paint-detailed tail lights.

The wing and chute mount were also scratch built. I need to add some sort of strut for support. The decals in the rear window are slixx left overs.

The idea is that this is a turbo car, so inside I scratch built an intercooler and related plumbing. Next, I will build a roll cage, fuel cell, and some electronics.

Looks Great! Love the color and that hood scoop too. These cars are really popular in the USA Drag Strips and that's why I'm suprised that they can't be seen much in this scale. But good to see yours, it looks great. Can't wait to see more.

Awesome!  The guys that built my 1:1 toy have one remarkably close to that! Check out mouth racing.com for more pics if interested

Kyle, the front wheels are prostars, avaliabe in older revell-monagram pro stock kits. I think you can get them in resin now. The rears are a centerline style I got from my parts box. More pics coming soon.......

Hey guys! Sorry it's been so long since I've posted, life got in the way! Here is some progress on the Camaro: I have a roll cage almost finished

The shifter is from Replicas and Miniatures of Maryland

IMG_7021_zpsc577c00c.jpg

I got the tires sanded and detailed, the wheels painted, window decals on, chute mounted and wired, and some burnout rubber on the quarters

I also lowered the front end, it will have this stance when it's finished

Thanks Jeremy and Tyrone!, the M/T logos are actually free hand. The tires are goodyear nascars with the logos facing in. I sanded the outside then used a Jelly Roll white pen( you can get them at Michaels) to make the logos( it will dry on the vinyl)

I have to agree with Tyrone here, nice job on lettering of your tires. I thought they were a decal lol. Looks perfect to me.
