Here are pictures of my latest successful build. It was put together for the 2008 ACME Southern Nationals NNL show. I wanted something for the "Mopar" theme, but with a "dare to be different" approach. The result is "PT Bruiser," a phantom PT Cruiser coupe with a distinct gasser flavor.

I started with a PT Coupe resin kit from Resin Werks and opened the hood and trunk. I decided to use the complete gasser chassis and drive train from the R/M Stone Woods Cook kit. (Yeah, I know, I've built two other projects on the same platform, but it looks neat and saves a whole lot of fabrication...) I quickly determined that the top mounted blower wouldn't work, so I fabricated a front mounted blower configuration. The body, chassis and engine are all painted Duplicolor Corvette Torch Red over Duplicolor white primer. I used Kilz Casual Colors for the clear coat and polished the paint with three grades of Tamiya polish. The build features details such as ignition wires, fuel lines, brake lines and the electric wires from the trunk mounted racing battery.
