78 Camaro Drag car
Posted 07 April 2006 - 02:53 PM
The body is a MPC 78 Camaro. The hood and dash come from the old AMT 70 Camaro. I cast the hood scoop from the old Monogram 7-11 T-Bird Pro Stock kit.
The slicks are from Action Diecast Pro Stocks. I scratch made the wheelie bars. The casters are resin. I liked the casters from the Revell Pro mods so much, I took a casting of them for this kind of use.
I added full on racing electronics to the interior. Next I will be moving on to the engine.

Wildrice, is this the one you are talking about?
I just LOVE this kit.
My next one I am going to do will have the Old Pro 72 Nova body on it. Then I want to do one with a 74 Firebird body I will be coming out with this year. Oops, I was not supost to say anything about that!!!! :wink:

The nova of mine in the model racing thread, that is a drag car was made from the Old Pro kit.In this kit you had to glue the front fenders on and had a choice of two different hoods. I went thru great pains to get all four pieces to fit,including the bumper.Once everything was glued in place I went and applied shoo-goo to the hood and fenders underneath.This was just for extra security in the event it would not stop in the glue at end of strip and crash into a pillow!
