I haven't posted here in a while due to medical issues, so here are my last two builds of the year. Both were completed for our clubs last two quarterly theme builds, 63-67 road racers and straight liners.
The road racer was based of pictures of SCCA and Trans Am 69/70 Mustangs, Phildaupho's wip (http://www.modelcars...ns +am +mustang) and Revells 70 Boss 302 kit. I used the kit engine and scratch built the oil breather pipe, air cleaner, remote oil filter, radiator and modified the intake manifold and coolant lines. The firewall detail was removed and engine compartment washed for the just raced look. The interior was gutted, console removed and the trans tunnel rebuilt with sheet styrene. The lower portion of the dash removed (based on 1:1 pics), scratch built the instrument panel using pe gauges. An aftermarket roll bar was tweaked to fit with a parts box seat and safety harness. The body was cleaned up, wipers removed and the fuel filler moved up to the edge of the trunk lid. The undercarriage was also reworked, washed, scratched built exhaust and ebay supplied resin wheels.
