I actually have an update on the Monaco. I added sub-frame connectors, a front roll pan from Amt's 65 GTO, decided on wheels made an air tank ( the brass thing), and decided on wheels. The Mag 500 will be one of the two spares.IMG_2050_zpsfc2c5874.jpgIMG_2041_zps298b4792.jpgIMG_2055_zps8f0fb224.jpgIMG_2053_zps44752d68.jpg

It's going to be a air tank, and your work is cool too!

a photo of the exhaust and the painted roll cage.I know the racing strips aren't the best but that's the look I'm going for.The real reason I have the mesh in the headlight is because I lost the bezel some where.the rason I'm going to say is because it look cool.

There's not a thing wrong with mixing Ford and Chevy it's done all the time with the 30's hot rods. The engine looks just fine sitting in there, the strips look nice on the ford, both cars look great.

Agreed, and I like the wheels on the '49 - are they from the Revell '67 Chevelle?

Wait a minute, are your wheels from the '72 GTO? If so, you are a psychic thief! If not, then I just gave away what's under my Cormaro.

They're actually from the 65 GTO.

Well, unfortunately I don't think my F-40 is going to make the deadline.  I just started college and am now only home on weekends, so I haven't even touched it in over 2 weeks. :(  Maybe I will find some time, but it's not looking good right now.  I guess I will just have to rely on the Viper to carry me to victory!

Last Week I got something done with the Torino Talladega.

 

The interior is pretty much done. I only need to add Shifter and some finishing touches. I made the seat belts from paper and after that I just put the interior together as usual. It was pretty simple and fitment was great. Then I did a little test fit with the Chassis, Interior, Body and Engine and I saw that some cutting is needed on the inner fenders. Now the engine - and Pro Charger fit to the engine bay and I already filled the Windshield Washer Bottle's place. Battery-Area needs to be filled before any Bondo-Work.

Awesome work Niko!

 

As for me I've got some interior work to show too. Starting with the door panels which are cover with heat and air tape, saw it in Harbor Freight and thought it'd look good for the interior.

 

It was a real pain in the rear to get those windows cranks out of the side panels.

 

Made the back side panels (made from sheet styrene)

 

I also made a fuel cell (out of cardboard.)

The Hot rod is stalled out until I come up with a color design for it, so nothing from that for the time being.

Nice work everyone!

 

Both of my car's are going along smoothly. Got the frame mostly done of the Super Bee and started painting it. A little teaser to the color is below.

 

I'm also making progress on the 41' as well I'm adding bucket seats to the rear and during fitting I also thought I make a large reseve oil pan, thought it might be good for the big blown Hemi running across country. It also fits againest the frame better. I also got some color on it too, straight black but it's got some really nice gold flakes. It's not noticable from a distance but as you get closer to it they just twinkle in the sun light.

 

Anyway that's all for now folks, keep up the great work everyone! :)

Guys, I'm going to officially throw in the towel here. I just have very little interest in the project right now and it's 100% attributed to the quality of the kit and the work it will take to get it to my satisfaction. I wish everyone luck and look forward to seeing the field on race day.
