Yep, that's why I said 1:25, the R/M CJ-7 engine actually isn't too bad, but its 1:24. The engine in the old Revell J-10 isn't too bad, and 1:25, but when I say its 'not too bad' I mean it's 'not too good' either!
Hey Chuck, I reworked the major flaws of the AMC V8 in the R/M CJ-7 kit, Mr. Ballard has the molds made to cast them...
Unless the V8 in the soon-to-be-released Gremlin kit is better
Left is kit part, right is reworked master:

The angriest Tootsie Roll ever. Done in 1/18, the first step in something a little different for me. Actual size: 3/8 by 1/8dia.

Then I cut both sides and cut out an 1/8 of inches out out all three pillars
The next step is to get it all attched and flowing in the right direction

I just took the B Pillars out. Was going to do slanted ones but thought it would look better without them.
That's a killer chop. What are your plans with the b-pillars- vertical or slanted?

The striped Hornet is at a standstill for the time being- I do have the 308 six shown earlier pretty much done. Pics will follow shortly. i dredged up an old AMC V8 from a Rambler kit that might end up powering the Hornet. It's a terrible engine, really, but its least-appealing aspects are pretty much hidden once its down in the Hornet's engine bay.
