This is a fairly recent build with an AMT body and a heavily modified Revell chassis and lots of pieces from the parts box. Scratch built wing, cage and so on. MM paints and Slixx decals.Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

Real nice I have a question I also like to wire my cars what do you use to tie the wires to the tube frame.

Cool GTO, the paint is oustanding! Your builds are always very nice to see, well detailed and they look good. This one belongs to that category, too.

Thanks guys! John I sometimes use a piece of dark colored thread to hold the wires in place (a dab of white glue on the back side to hold the thread together) and I also use masking tape painted in various colors to replicate duct tape that you sometimes see on race cars to hold the wires in place.
