what's up fellas, well I got some paint on the Nova yesterday,, and I had some idle time on my hands. I've had this 57 chevy body from flashpoint, so I started on what's probably going to be a long project.. This one will have a blower, and this will be my first crack at scratch building the chassis... I've started on the floor section... here's a few pics..

Looking just right. That thing is going to take some great paint and graphics. Keep it going.

Neat looking body, always liked the aero-look '57's, the chassis looks good so far, glad to see a blower car from you. I'll be checking this build out!

Nice start on the frame Tyrone, I notice the 1/25 body differs some from the 1/16. I think the scoop in the hood looks better.

Oh yea!! Another epic Tyrone build in the making. I'm glued to my seat for this one and it'll even have a blower. I really like the looks of that sleek and swoopy FlashPoints body and especially the hood.
