This will be interesting, A Friend for the '57 Chevy ProMod. I'll be watching this one very closely, you do excellent job with the frame. It looks very good already. What body is that, it looks like resin from the underside, but.......?

thanks alot for the commments, fellas.. I appreciate it.. Wayne thanks a million for the pics... I like the paint scheme on the last three pics I think the most... well I got the rear section all finished up the cockpit is almost done I still need to finish up the funny car cage and add a few more bars...I'm liking the look with the big shoes on the back dont know if they will work but I'm gonna try.. thanks for looking and comments welcome...

nice job as usual Tyrone.

 

funny how us modelers buy that carpenter kit, steal the chassis for a different build, the motor for another, who knows where the body goes, spend hard earned cash on a resin body, evergreen rod just to build the kit we completely tore apart !! sometimes i think the wife is right.... we ARE crazy!! oh yea, when is the resin motor coming???

Thanks fellas.. I've made a little progress on this one... I got the front firewall finshed up, the funny car cage is done.. I've also made some upper strut mounts, and I used the lower ones from a pro sportsman chassis in the parts box... After grinding the rear quarters to try and get the big slicks from pegasus to fit.. I decided not to use them on this one and use the ones from the kit... here's a few pics... MERRY CHRISTMAS !!! ... thanks for looking and comments welcome.... 003-1_zpsd2792e65.jpg004-4_zps43783e35.jpg here's a pic with the pro sports body in the back ground...to show the difference... 005-4_zpsf83078d5.jpg006-4_zps28bfb009.jpg008-3_zps332e3e22.jpg
