That's coming along nicely Ira.  The fit of all these parts is pretty close-great vision on this project-even if it's "in the cellar" at the bottom of the page. :blink:   

 

Thanks Steve!

 

:lol:

3 FINS!!!

 

I cut the top off of the second Tailfin and shaped both Fin Tops as shown.

Here are the small Tailfins in place...

Time for a little more primer and sanding, then maybe some Color!
I am thinking I might paint it Blue Metalflake and Silver with White Tribal Flames...

ALIEN SUPERCHARGER!!!

 

Stingray Needs  More Power! So I am making an Alien Supercharger for the Jet Engines. I started with 2 Wings from an AMT Droid Fighter.

 

DSCN2564X_zpsbf0748b4.jpg

 

I cut the ends from one side of each...

 

DSCN2565X_zps1f13bfab.jpg

 

Then I glued them together.

Here is the Alien Supercharger in place!

Ira. I hate to inform you but those alien super chargers are going to blow those tomcat engines to bits as soon as the pilot hits the burner. Any judge at any show will defiantly dock you points for that. :)
Just goofing. Your build is awesome. Please keep it up

'59 IMPALA DASHBOARD!!!

 

I found that the Revell 1959 Impala Dashboard would be Perfect for Stingray, if it were modified a little bit...

 

DSCN2979X_zps3a263df1.jpg

 

Here it is in place.

 

DSCN2986X_zps11133994.jpg

 

Now just a little more putty and sanding and we will be ready for some Color!
