Joseph's project got me inspired to get rolling on my own.

This is a JF body that darn near killed my dremel getting it cleaned up and thinned out.

Planning on using several parts from speed city resin and slixx decals and lot of parts box bits.

Cool project.

Is the JF body based on an original AMT kit , or is it based on a Polar lights version ?

 

 

I have a resin 1965 Plymouth afx hardtop coming for a Sox and Martin car ( later)

 Joseph we are on the same page... Our 6 month old son Ronnie spent most of last night at the doctors and the wife is staying home with him today.

Funny how life cuts into bench time..

 Bill, from looking at it compared to the Speed City body I have I am going to guess it is based on the AMT.

I gotta agree...AWB cars are cool. Been wanting to build one for 3 years now, a little Ford Falcon or similar.

 

Looks like a great start Roger!
