This was a build for a member on another site.

A few mods include the spikes on the dash, the front door speaker pods, the subs, rear door panel monitors, opened trunk, Ross Gibson engine, the Grim Reaper on the dash, complete with sickle and some others.

Love the color and the interior really POPS. Very nice model. Doesn't this kit come with the Elvira figure?

I think you've got yourself a very cool model there. Thanks for sharing.

I don't remember what the leopard print decals were from, they came with the kit from the owner.

A pic of the engine. I tried everything to put the aircleaners on the carbs, there just isn't enough clearance under the hood for them. As it is, I shaved the base of the carbs and the intake just to get it to fit as you see it.

This kit did not come with a figure, the owner did send a resin one for me to paint.

Very nice... the black paint looks fantastic.

Yep... you really need an Elvira figure to finish this one off... ;)

i've been meaning to do some corrections on my own elvira macbremobile, as the revell decals for the seats is tan and black, instead of white and black as Psychographic has done.

oh, you just need to plate to finish it off. (if i remember correctly, it's california "KICKASS").

Bought this one at a swap meet & was missing figure and (decals?) Got it really cheap so bought a resin Elvira (cost more than the kit) still need to get after market decals. Are they still available? NICE BUILD!

Kewl interior and details. I assume no scale leopards were harmed during the making of this model. The actual sunlight makes the car look really great too. Photographed with an exterior background, it would look 1:1 at first and second glance.

Nice work. I've been wanting one of these but they go for too much on eBay. I'll snatch one up some time. Keep up the good work. Gonna save these pics for future reference if you don't mind.

Does that kit come with the trunk and doors open or did you do that?
