What rear tires did you use? They fit the build perfectly!

Too cool! Great color too.

BTW...it's weird for me when someone posts one of their "early" builds...all the way back from 2003...

when I realize that my early builds were done in the 60s! :D

Harry I built back in the 80's but none of those made through to the 90's,lol All my early 90's builds have been torn down and dunked in CSC, now they all wait to be restored. I wished I had taken some pics before I did tear them down. BTW i got back in to model building in 2002.

I know what you mean, Pat. I really wish I still had all the models I built in the past, but unfortunately they're all long gone...

victims of my mom's long ago basement cleaning. :roll:

Sorry I missed your question.
The back tires are Nascar tires, I believe I got them out of the Monograms Squarebird combo.

That looks like a real Saturday night street racer that might have a glove box full of tickets for "exhibition of speed".

I love the overall look, but when you start looking at the details, Yikes!!

Outstanding!

Same here Harry, just wish I still had them. Still it looks great.
