It was in a box, partially done... this is what sparked my interest in getting back into modeling again.

This at about 70-80% done:

I think I might order one of the comp resin bodies to go on it.

I know it doesn't look like much, but for my first build in 20 years... I'm happy with it. :lol:

This is done:

I suppose they all look the same, but I had a couple of Mad Magazine FC's several years ago. One I used for parts, and the other one I built just as you have yours, sans body. After I raped the first one, I bought another because the chassis looked so kool! I later modified a 41 Plymouth to fit it.

Nice way to get back in business.

Just so you know, the older you get, the smaller the parts become. The model companies do this to keep their kits challenging for all age groups. :lol:
Seriously though, that chassis looks great and I'm anxious to see what body you decide to put on that thing!

No, you're probably a lot bigger than you were 20 years ago, so the pieces only seem smaller... :lol:
