Hi!

I've only seen one built as a ProStreet years back, but I found this picture on web.

It looks as a typical Modelhaus casting, except the chassis might be a bit more shallow.

I can say without hesitation that if it is a Modelhaus product it will build as easily as the Best plastic kit out there... Dons stuff is sometimes better than kit stuff...

With a recommendation like that for a model I've wanted to build for a long time now, I guess I've got to start saving my pennies to get one. Or two!

Everything I've ever received from Don and Carol has been awesome! I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.

I plan on picking up thieir resin Corvair convertible and 4-door resin kits some day.

Great stuff

Cheers, Ian

I can second that. The Modelhaus has never let me down in the products I have obtained from them. Always nice, crisp castings.

Sorry for the delay , I've had issues as of late . An excellent kit / build . I bought one as soon as they released it . Decals includes for some the small emblems . Perfect replica as far as I can tell . I am still happy with it decades later . All of their products are what you are looking for IMHO . Thanx ..
