Cutlass update. Interior is almost finished. Just need to add dash decals and glue everything together. Tonight I flocked the floor and lower door panels.

One problem I did notice was with the door panel decals. They were a little bit short to cover the whole area they are supposed to cover. The passenger side decal also has the same cut out for the mirror adjusters as the drivers decal. Luckily Revell includes 2 center consoles (for automatic and 4 speed trans) and the extra decal film can be trimmed to cover up the area that should have been covered in the first place.

Go ahead Dominik, jump in. Anyone can join as long it's finished by the deadline, so there are many months ahead. When you're ready, just post photos of your starting point and you'll be added to the list.

Update time, I would have got this up sooner but photobucket was being a pain. Anyway after alot of thinking (and yes that hurt) I decided it would be best to scratch build a frame rather than extend the original for the twin Hemi's. So after a few burnt fingers and choice words this is what I got, it's my very first attempt at a custom frame so we'll see where it goes.

That's pertty much what I got for now, I will start on the GTX soon, I just want to get this a little futher along seeings how this is uncharted water for me.

 

Everyones builds are looking great so far.

I'm impressed already. With that much figured out on paper (and clearly with precision) it'll probably be spot on.

O.k., i've done my choice after a look into the boxes.

Please count me in with a '66 Buick Wildcat:

...so lets get started to work on it. I will do my best ;)

 

@Lonathan: to build a frame is just amazing!

 

@all: interesting work! I am impressed.

I'm impressed to say the least.

Hi Derick, i hope so too!

I opened the box yesturday the first time.  I got it from my brother, he wants to sell it.  While i built the Hasegawa-kit <_< long time ago, i hoped, this amt is better in details.

o.k...it has an engine...but if i look along my bench and see the amt-"Christine" or 57 Chrysler 300 C (those kits i love because the Detail!)...hm. Should i tune up the enginebay? I don't know, how far i will go with it...

Have some progress to show on my Viper.  Got the chassis mostly together and added some carbon fiber accents to the interior.  The body probably won't be done for a while since I have to sand and repaint, but it will be a dark silver color.  Hopefully that will be a bit less noticable when it is flying down the interstate!

Hi all, Quick update, There was a slight oversight made when I measured the width of the frame, my measurements were made using the out side of the body not the inside. :rolleyes: The frame also sat higher in the rear than I wanted so after separating it and a little modification the problem was solved and I'm happy with it now. The front brace is only taped on for now, I still don't know exactly where the engines will sit.

After a little mock up test on the differential I think it's too narrow for what I want so I've been modding a slightly wider differential for a little bit wider stance in the back.

 

Post2Pic2_zpse7b526eb.jpg

 

Sorry for the size difference I was messing around with the settings on the camera a little.

 

Post2Pic3_zps2fbd54b8.jpg

 

After looking at the picture I just realized that the shock mount on the left is a little crooked so I'll have to fix that.

 

 

The Viper is looking good Josh, nice touch on the carbon fiber.
