I have been busy doing some painting on the body. I have chosen to go with Tamiya Light Gunmetal since I changed my mind about which powerplant to install in this thing. Before shooting the clear, I added some Chevy decals I had laying around. I still have to wetsand and polish the finish, it's pretty rough.... ;)

Very, very nice, Marcos!!

The thing I'm always reminded of by my friends from back when I had a Vega were the butt marks on the inside of the hatchback window. :)

Later,

Nice project. I kinda like the idea to throw a rotary engine in a vega. Quite weird but cool. :lol:

I like your choice of paint. And the black stripes are perfect!! A pseudo muscle car; Chevy Vega SS _ _ _ Reminds me of my old '70 El Camino SS454.... sigh.... it was Shadow Gray with black stripes!

Cruz, that color with those stripes and the wheel & tire combo gives it a serious, street racer look! I hope you get it finished for the show Sunday, as it will be a real standout. See you then!

To be honest with you Marcos, that engine DOES look kinda big for 25th scale. Looks more BB size than SB. There's also a neet v-6 in the Monogram El Camino that has a nice look to it when complete.I'm talking about the Bass Fishing set. But I think the other versions had one too. I got a couple, let me know if ya need one, I got 2 GNX turbo motors too.Let me know an they're yours. :)

i know this ia old posting just wondering about those GN motors ? you still have them ?

Marcos -

I'm really liking this build -I've been lurking around and I have to say the rotary motor option is perfect!
I really liked the small block option -I wasn't too keen on the Buick motor.

The color is just right and the stance is PERFECT!

I learned every thing I know about Rotaries (Rotii?) from Scott Colmer! :rolleyes:
