looks like some water was hiding in the door jam...silly water <_<   some light wet-sanding should fix it right up since this is only this first color coat.

I'm still here, and the Monaco is getting some upgraded parts from a Dodge Sidewinder! I'll  post some pics when I have a little more progress.

More design options. I have received a modern Charger hood and rear wing from Fred Mckee. I cut the scoop from the hood. The wing will be modified a bit and will be lower, but I think it works well. The scoop looks great. Thoughts and opinions?

been a while since I updated the cuda on here, ill simplify it in a small paragraph. Clear problems so I decided to buy a new kit for a new body(old body will get stripped later on)then got it painted and cleared and finished, the chassis is finished; all it needs is the rear end painted and I need to find some shocks for it. wheel and tire change to some convo pros and got it lowered.

Like this thread. Nice progress buddies!

 

Just think about to enter with a second model...

 

@Nick: are "real" Racecars (for example the JTCC) also allowed?

Dominik, as long as it is considered street legal.

There is some Great work being done by everyone here.

Well, It's nearing the end of June, so I guess I should get my...self in gear and get started.

My build is inspired by a February 2012 article I saw in a model magazine.

I don't know what kind of green paint was that was used on the '66 AMT Mustang  that I bought to use for parts was, but I couldn't strip it off no matter what I tried!!

It has been a while (see page 14) since I posted here Rob, I started with an AMT '67 Mustang fastback kit. Everything seems to be going alright, only bad thing so far is the side vent windows didn't survive the filing and grinding process to get the parts to mate.
