actually i took a .25 in. pie cut out of the rear roof to bring it down a bit, then i split the roof 90% of the way forward to bring the door arch back then made a new upper door. removed the belt line, pie cut the hood and brought the front edge down.
still contemplating the 57 fins

While I applaud your skill and enthusiasm, I wonder if you are not trying to go too far too soon.
The rules were...

No builder does more than one thing.

IE: If you chop it, you can’t channel it / tub it / paint it / etc. (someone else probably will)






Jason Vandergriff has the honor of being the first reserve member...

I have to say this is an ambitious and inspiring project. I just found this site and joined because of the snowball project and want to congratulate each of you for taking on such an ambitious project. I wish I had found this site earlier as the project sounds like something I personally would love to be involved with. It looks great so far and I am looking forward to seeing photos of the next portion of the build, and the one after that, and after that, and after that. I know the builders list is complete but, if I can get on the alternate list I would happily join.
It has taken me a couple of hours to sift through the whole project thus far, checking out the original project and the posts associated so far with this build but, as I began to read I began to develop my own thoughts on a snowball project. Sort of a surprise snowball project you could say. My thinking was to get a group of four or six people that wanted to participate and have each begin a model of their choice. Each one would be responsible for one part of a model, as each may not begin on building the same model, and pass it on to the designated next person who would do the same thing they did to the last one on the one they just received. The end result would be four or six models, each one being started by the final owner who started the project, but having three or five other peoples influence on the final production. Anyone following me here? Basically what I envision is that I would start say a mid-sixties mustang or camaro and I would be responsible for the engine and running gear, then I would send it along to the next person and wait for the the person behind me to send what they started. What I would receive could be a '48 ford woody, but all I am responsible for is the engine that goes into the model. This would go on for however many modelers are in the group and eventually I would get my original mustang or camaro back with each persons influence showing up in the completed model.
Anyways, just wanted to share my thoughts and wish each of you well wishes on completing this project. Anyone interested in my idea just let me know. I am not trying to detract from this project, just trying to get to know some fellow plastic fanatics. As a modeler of thirty-plus years I am more than happy to talk to others who enjoy what I consider my passion, but do not tell my wife I said this is my passion.
