I'd like to join in with 2 cars. Christine and also the City Chevy stocker from Days of Thunder. I did start the race car in the Nascar section HOWEVER: I did not get the right paint so it will be stripped and the chassis has not been started or engine, Nothing. My old pics are the body sitting on a different scale frame in the other section so I will be starting over. Hope it's ok

I've been out to the garage and found the Monogram XKE kits so I can get started. I'm glad I bought them a few years ago because the only ones I see on ebay are asking $45 and $60, I think I paid $15 or $20 for the two kits together.

Technically I should be starting with a convertable, but once I've made the changes it won't matter. Funny thing with the kits one says 1/25 and the other 1/24 but they are the same kit, just different issues, one is a white box with white plastic, one a black box "exotic car series" with silver plastic.
I usually start with a sprue shot, but quite a few of the parts are off the sprues so it would just be a jumble of parts. So far I've only found 1 missing piece from the suspension and it looks simple enough to make.


OMG. Too kewl! :lol:


It's one of my favorite movies, I've always wanted a 1-1 but I'll have to settle for 1/25. B)
