I'd started on this build about 2 years ago i'd finally got around to working on it. Since the kits frame was all hacked up so i had a Revell 57 Bel Air frame to replace the hacked up unit i had to do some trimming to get it to fit. The suspension, engine & drivetrain is coming from the 57 Bel Air as well.

Heres some progress on the Nomad. Here she is on all fours for good its not the stance i'd wanted but didnt want to go through all the trouble modifying the suspension to drop it low.
