In Topic: What hemi would work in 1/24 Superbird?

13 April 2015 - 07:51 AM

The problem is that the Monogram Superbird is 1/24, basically all other kits that have a Hemi is in 1/25.

Thanks everybody!

 

@Josh; nope! I stripped the kit chrome from most parts and painted them with Alclad stainless steel. I didn't want to go the obvious way ;-)

Thanks guys,

@Kevin; because people have 're-used' my pictures before, claiming it to be their own or even to fraud people through Craigslist

@Fred: Hmm, then I got my terms mixed up, I know it is a full frame, but maybe I should've used the term post-war.

 

Small update, because I am on sickleave I have a few moments to work on it. Progress will soon go a lot slower.

Because it is quite normal that the floor is gone in junkers, I decided to remove this floor as well

Added new suspension brackets

And got a new tunnel, using the old interior floor
