ok fellas, i know you think im nutsm but this build(s) has been in the works for the last few years, and now that the kit is out i have to build two of them, one for my Brother, and one for myself.

this is the car driven by by Woody harrelson in the movie "kingpin", one of my fave movies of all time........very funny!! its a 1972 oldsmobile cutlass convertible, but it is all beat to hell and back!

here are a few shots from the movie, i have plenty more of these coming tomorrow....

Thank Ray!

they will get finished, ive been waiting forever to do them, and im really fired about about these two builds.

if you`ve never seen "Kingpin" go rent it! its pretty darn funny. It stars, Woody Harrelson, Randy Quaid,and Bill Murray.

so ive drilled out the trunk lock cylinder, in the movie it is missing.......i believe i might stick a screw driver in there, but i want to stay as close to the movie car as possible.
Posted Image
the drivers exterior door handle, and interior rear view mirror will also be missing, Roy accidentally tears them off with his "hook hand".........not one of his proudest moments.

this body is so very smooth and nice, it did have two sink marks in the trunk where the spoiler goes, but they blocked right out!

more to come guys!
stay tuned
