I'm trying to get back to building after playing around with the 1:1. I wanted to build a muscle car since I'm board with the newer stuff that I have been building so I picked out amt's Fast and the furious 1970 Monte Carlo.

Plans are a black on black with black vinyl top and keystone style wheels. Just a clean looking muscle car.

Very cool. I had a 1:1 and your plan sounds just like where I wanted to go with it, but I ended up selling it before it was finished. I'll be watching with interest.

I like the look of it so far. I love the first gen Montes. I had one for awhile...Here is a picture of the model I built of the 1:1 I had. I didnt get the real one painted but this was to be the color of it. I am re doing a new body for the model with the photo ecthed set and a vinyl top with the modeling around it. Maybe some time I will get it finished. Cant wait to you yours done. Might push me to get it back out.

Not bad, Jared. I usually don't do the high-rider rear ends, but I like the basic concept of what you're doing. Certainly an improvement over the F&F depiction.

Those look like the wheels and tires from the AMT Baldwin-Motion '70 Camaro kit.

Jared, you're gonna need some Gabriel Hi-Jacker air shocks back there to allow the rear tires to clear the wheel arches. ;)

As an old fart I like to see the rear ends up in the air once in a while.

Thanks everyone! As for the tires they are from a die cast Chevy vega.

I'm going for a real old school look.

So I started the vinyl top, and as you can see it still needs more work but it's a start. Also gonna pop the trunk open on this build.

Thanks man. It is a pretty good kit, but I imagine the stock one is even better.

So I got the top pretty much finished and cut out the trunk. Now it needs some hinges and jambs. Also filling in some minor spots and then paint!
