I just completed this one. I had posted some in progress pics in the workbench section a while back. It an old Johan Kit with some subtle body mods, scratchbuilt billet grille, MV Lenses and an updated interior. Pegasus Hellas wheels and machined Gas Cap. Color is Testors Laquer Phoenisian Yellow and Olive Interior.

Very cool, Bryan. I bought one of these after you posted your first progress pics. Looks like I'm not the only one that likes MV Lenses. :lol:

That's a sweet looking ride you got there. Great color choices and the wheels really set it off and give it some muscle. Well done!

    I work hard, I build models for relaxation and fun.

Don't laugh but I actually had one of those when I was 16. Mine was a hardtop though.
Didn't look quite that good either.
great job.

VERY nice update of an old classic! It's nice to see some unusual models being built, especially when they're done as well as your Lark! Excellent work!
