This is my most modified kit so far. Loved the Daytona since it first came out but was really disappointed with the kit so it got fixed!!
Front wheel arches & axles were moved forward to reduce the bulk at the nose. The guards were widened a bit too. The roof has been dropped at the front with new A pillars & an extended rear deck added. Half the reason I wanted to build the kit was the nose & wing but with the extended tail , the wing didn't work... weird.
Underneath is a cut down Nascar chassis, cage & suspension. It was fun squeezing a 1/24th chassis under a cut down 1/25 shell
Power plant is the gas turbine out of the old Lotus Indy car. Added some detailing, an intake screen & the biggest exhaust I could jamb in there.
Being jet powered the paint scheme was a no brainer. Pretty happy with the way it turned out
