Just completed my Wally Booth ProStock Gremlin. Decals from Scale Auto Details. Airbrushed Tamiya TS paints. I combined the interior and chassis from an MPC Dyno Don Pinto ProStock with the Gremlin engine and body. The Gremlin chassis is just not up to par for a ProStock model. I think it came out okay.

Sweet,

I so want to do one of these. Bad.

 

 

It's coming up with the chassis seems to be the hard part. I keep thinking about attempting my 1st scratch build to do it.

Already have a  conversion 72 bumpers and grille

Already thought about the firefighter mustang2, but it's my understanding one is coil over susp and the other is leaf spring , just don't remember which one is which (might still go this way regardless just for simplicity ,,and just not turn it over )

 

To the op I saw the in process pics and I REALLY want to do this car, only I am leaning more towards the other paint scheme this car ran under.

Never heard of Scale Auto Decals, or a conversion kit for the AMT Gremlin who makes what. Great build

Missing Link  has a 1972 style grille and bumpers (ft and rear ) I just got a set a few weeks back

 

I've seen the decals on ebay a few times

 

 

But, And I think Slixx now has the decals to do this car as well as Wally Booths 1969 Camaro

That is a totally killer Gremlin sir! Great detailing in the engine compartment and the sharpness of the paint masking is beautiful man!

 

I'm also have the Gremlin on my "Gotta Build" list and yours has inspired me!

 

Way to go Darryl !!   ;)

Bill,

 

The old MPC Dyno Don Pinto ProStock chassis is almost a direct replacement. Not much modification needed. Also, unlike the mustang, the Pinto had the same wheelbase as the Gremlion. The Pinto ProStock interior also fits with little modification.
