Resin parts for 1/16 mpc firebird?
Posted 28 April 2012 - 06:54 AM
I have this model kit but I want to make it just like my real car. I know the kit is a 82 firebird. Mine is a 91. Is there anyone that makes the ground effects & the nose for a 91 firebird? Also my car has the 20 slot rims & I know those will be impossible to find. I was told that the ground effects could be made from styrene but the 91 nose would be a challenge. Any ideas would be greatly helpful.

What do the wheels look like?

Yeah I found that out when I went to the hobbyshop. I never scratchbuilt anything so this is all new to me.
As for the wheels, I cant describe them. If you see any firebirds with a 20 slot mag ( mainly 90 91 ) then its my style of rim. Unfortunately I cant download a pic or I would show you what it looks like.

Sorry but there are not the snowflake wheels. I think I will just use the bowling ball rims.

If so, yeah...good luck scratch-building those. If you wanted a nice 5-spoke wheel, I'd look into the Maisto or Jada 1:18 diecast with the larger wheels/tires. That's what I was going to do with my kit.

Yes those are the wheels that are on my car. I think they will be very hard to make. I'll look into something else but I want to keep it as close to my car as possible. Thanks for posting the pic.
