Posted this in under glass a while back, but I think it may have an audience here, as well!

I basically just built it to kill time while I was waiting for my Time Machine Resins SSII transkit to show up. Here it is, all finished, and the SSII still hasn't gotten here. Oh, well! I had fun anyway!

Highlights include-
Olds 455 V8 W/TBI
4-speed Manual Tranny
Lifted Suspension
Super Swamper TSL Radials (Now available from Ma's Resin! ;) )
Sliding Quarter Glass (Well, non funcioning on the model, but you know what I mean!)
Scratchbuilt bumpers and '73 spec grille.
Scratchbuilt hood w/Nova Cowl scoop
Ted Nugent Dazzle Paint (Inca Gold, Revving Red fade, flat black stripes, and a dull coat and dust over all of it)
Plus a bunch of other stuff I'm too traumatized to recall at this time.

This is probably my 45th Scout model. I really like Scouts!
