I don't know if my entry got missed or if I did something wrong so here it is again.

 

I will be entering with a Fujimi Porsche 911 Flatnose.When I aquired the kit the previous owner slashed off the roof,but I think the damage is easily repairible.Here are some pics of it ,one has the roof just placed on the body.I might have a story with mine if I can think of one.

Hi again

 

As documentation of the non stared kit, here are the promised photos of the box and content

 

SAM_0055_zps01b76aa5.jpg

 

SAM_0056_zps8d0692ee.jpg

 

To follow my idea here´s a little story:

 

The "Bandit" wants to do a comeback on the roads, so he call´s "Year one" getting them to put together a new car for him, which he can ues in the "2013 Cannonball run".

He wants them to use the car from the first movie - the 77/78 Trans Am, but just putting it up to current standard.

 

Now it will just be up to me getting the model there - will keep Ya all updated on the progress when ideas comes to mind - but one thing is for sure - the 15" will be replaced with something more modern - i´m thinking 19" or similar.

 

Have a nice day gentlemen and a happy new Year when we get there.

 

Cheers

Søren

Okay here is my entry. Starting point is old Monogram '78 Chevy El Camino gluebomb but it has almost all parts. Engine will be Chevy Big Block with tunnelram and lenco transmission. Only thing what i had done was that i removed original molded exhaust pipe. Now it needs some bondo and lots of sanding.

 

Starting point is this.

Some parts of it. Need to think what parts i really need on this project like what wheels etc.

Kuvia611.jpg?t=1356633955

 

Here's pic after i removed that molded echaust pipe.

Starting point of engine looks like this.

My official entry, the AMT 53 Ford street machine.

 

Not all of the kit is there which is no big deal cuz I only want the body, so its gonna be a huge kitbash...of what I wont say but I did leave a couple hints in the picture. Like I said earlier it`ll have 4 wheels and scare little kids..............and the only color will be black. Cuz nothing says ingognito like a black 53 Ford p/u B)

love the story

i can totally see this happening

 

im not too excited to see 19inch rims under classic iron but thats your call (just be sure you can still steer)

 

on a side note, this kit was one of the first i build when i got back into building and i still really like it

i think its also one of the first kits i bought my nephew when i introduced him to model cars

Here is my starting point...1966 Nova with a little modern update to the drive train:

2A936014-2472-44DA-B07C-C5A05E1FB6F9-126
 

 

 

funny you should mention that...after seeing what i am up against i just pulled the trigger yesterday and bought a 96 corvette to steal the driveline out of to kinda make a pro-touring type build out of this

(pics as soon as it gets here)

Here is my story. Originally we were going to use a Lincoln LSC built pro street style. After being talked out of it (thanks Erik) for lack of handling and bad gas mileage we had to ponder what vehicle to use that has good gas mileage, handling, and a reason to not get arrested. We came up with the Toyota Celica GT-Four due to race proven WRC build up and having great gas mileage, superb handling, and when being chased by the police instead of stopping we will just claim the accelerator is STUCK and we should get a police escort the rest of the way. Accelerator will be stuck to the floor for the whole race. That's my story and I am sticking to it.

Heres a little incentive for HNTR. I like the idea of the Lincoln. You may not do too well in the corners but you`ll have no problems passing anything on the straights.........

He has a name and no Mikes on the list for a few days, just missed Austin and his Porshe.

Any chance I could still get in on this?  Not sure what I will build yet but I'm sure I can come up with something cool.
