This was a fun little kit to build. My friend Mark and I squared off building the same kit in competition for fun. I wanted to keep the build stuck in the 70's, so the earthtone paint scheme came of age. I didn't test fit the hood before anything B) , so I have to fix that so it clears the air cleaner hose. B) I also added Shabo tire decals. Anyway, here it is

Hey that looks good. It nice to see someone building that kit, I never see those built up anywhere.
You did a good job, captures the 70s.

Nice job. That color combination definitely has a 70's flavor to it.

Nice clean looking build Mike. I posted this a couple of days ago, but it dissapeared. I wish I could find a kit of a Firebird in the same model year, since I owned the 1:1 for 8 years.

Terrific Build! That looks real enough to start up and peel out.
and I too, remember those cars well.
lots of folks had them. a friend of mine in the Army had one in the early eighties.......
it was a puke pastel green with a green interior.

Yup, definitely a '70s vibe going there!  Nice build, pity the hood fouls on the air intake.  I was in Canada during that time period so your model brings back memories of seeing cars like that for me as well.
