This was built from the revell muscle kit, I built it following the instructions with no extras or modifications. I was just focused on doing a clean build and decent paint. The kit was a good one to build and it went together really well. I chose the Tamiya british green because i like how it looks with a white stripe, It's not a colour i'd usualy go for but i am pleasantly surprised by the results.

Thanks for looking and as always any comments both positive and negative are appreciated.

Notice the Tennessee license plate - the original car that was used for the kit design was in Tellico Plains, in Monroe county. The old fellow had quite a collection of rare cars from what I heard.
