This is my entry in this year's Cannonball Run CBP.

I'm quite happy with the result, started with the Revell '65 fastback, added the engine from the '98 Saleen convertible, wheels/tyres from a Fujimi RX8 Mazda and a few bits of Mustang Model Car Garage photoetch including grill, fuel cap and glovebox motif.  Extra fuel cell and battery box are from the AMT '32 Phantom Vicky.  Front half of exhaust is Saleen, rear section from base kit.

Paint is Tamiya Metallic Orange with flat black hood. And yes, I still have to add the upper radiator hose :rolleyes:

A very sharp build Paul. The orange really pops and a killer finish. Very nice work...

Crafty and practical use of a flat black hood. Great job on detail, it turned out great! B)

Cool. The orange with black wheels and hood works good together. Like it!

 

Only the "rubber" around the windshield and rear window i am missing.

Looks great! Love the orange. If you ever use rattle cans, you should check out Rust-Oleum's Real Orange Double Coverage paint.

 

I did notice that you're missing a radiator hose...  :lol:  I kid, I kid  :rolleyes:
