Cool, Here's the start.attachicon.gifIMG_18791.JPGattachicon.gifIMG_18801.JPGThe wheels and tires came from a Monogram 55 F-100.

 

I too love this kit - can never get enough 4 doors.

Here's some inspiration.

Sweet,I love the concept of your car Fred.I might do something similar only I will likely stick
with the kit included 440.Oh, and I changed my mind about the wheels ,too much modding had to be done,
I still don't have my mind made up for what to use instead.Any suggestions?Stock steelies or General Lee
style turbines are being considered.

So after careful consideration I decided to go with two of my favorite cars. 1) 67 Dodge Coronet and 2) 93 Mustang SVT Cobra. It's not going to be a combined build (that would be blasphemy) but two separate entries.

Looking great guys.  Just wanted to say I am still here, just finishing up a current project before I start my Viper.  I do have the kit now though and can hopefully start it within the month.

I have decided to make to one of my entries. Instead of the 93 Mustang SVT Cobra I am going with a 32 Ford 5 window highboy. My other entry (67 Dodge Coronet) stays as according to plan.

well i got some more work done on the cuda, i just didnt like the wheel wells so i cut them out and tubbed it with some sheet styrene

 

101_1641.jpg

 

i also cut out the fuel tank and used some styrene to cover the tank hole and the holes from the exhuast being removed

 

101_1638.jpg

 

im going to have to extend the tunnel now that the seat is cut out

 

101_1640.jpg

 

and i removed the seat even though it didnt need to be, im going to use some styrene to cover it all up and make it look clean.

After entering the 4th edition with green 81 Mustang and entering the 5th with a 61 Falcon but never got around to build it i'm entering this years with a 93 Ford Ranger with a 5.0L Ford cammer motor straight out of the Wallace Engineering skunkworks, it will be less working ute more prototypey and should be able to run for at least 24 hours ;)
