Heres my newest project that im working to take a break from my other builds im working on. My plan for this project is building it straight out of the box except for some detailing and a set of Atlas wheels (Torq-Thrust D) styled wheels that came from a Revell 69 Corvette Yenko kit. The paint is Testors One Coat Emerald Green Metallic to replicate the Rally Green paint. I'll try to keep ya'll up to speed on this project.

I like that color Rick! It doesn't seem to have the out of scale metal flake like most of the Testors one coat laquers do.
