Here some pics of a model I finished way back in 1995. It's the AMT 1/25 scale item and is pretty much straight out of the box...

Looks great, even if I can see the 90's building style on body colored bumbers and wheels. Anyway it's built very nicely, excellent paint job and fantastic details on the engine. I really like this one.

Thanks for your positive comments. Back when this was built the colour coded bumpers was my way of getting past the issue od seem lines in chrome. This was long before I had heard of the likes of Alclad etc.

really beautiful. i dont think a lot of those engine parts came straight out og the box though!! seriously, very nicely done. i have real problems dong one like this, i always try to "overkill" the build. those headers didnt come in that kit, did they? maybe i should start looking at small block stuff a little closer.

Yep - I usually go little OOT with modifications too - and so by my standards this is kinda 'out of the box' :rolleyes: .

The headers come with the kit, but are part of the side exit exhaust system, so I have used the 'street machine' headers and combined them with the stock exhaust system.
