Thanks guys!

 

What did you make the extended rear spoiler out of? Been driving me nuts seems all of these cars have them. The ones I've tried to make are either too thick, too clunky.

Does anyone have proper dimensions? Tricks?

 

Thanks

 

I just used Evergreen styrene strip, cut to the width of the lower portion of the spoiler, and rounded of by sanding. 

Hope this helps!

That mock up looks really cool!

I have been selling mine for about a decade now. It started with a 1/25 `68 L88 that ended up going for way more than I thought it would. 

 

Over the years, I have had some real nightmares trying to ship. Some of them arrived to the buyer completely obliterated. That is, the kit was closer to "assembled" when I bought it off the shelf at Walmart than after I had shipped the built model. 

 

Lately, I have refined my process, I usually wrap the car in TP, like layer after layer. I then surround with bubble wrap and mount it to a plastic container. I then place the plastic bin in a larger box with packing peanuts.

 

I have shipped a bunch of 1/12 models this way, including the `67 L88 Barrett Jackson car and the red `67 Tri-power I just sold. They both went about 1000 miles without issues. I had one guy out in California, about a 3000 mile trek from me, buy three of my 1/12 builds a few years back. All of them made it to him completely in-tact. I have been using USPS to ship.

 

As far as value, it is worth what someone will pay for it.  B)  :D

Looks great Andre! I know you were worried about the tail lights, but I think they look very convincing! Did you have fun building it? 3rd gen f-bodies are what kept me in the hobby throughout the 80`s.
