Sean or Jeffrey- What scale are we talking about? 1/24th or 1/25th and what donor kit is the master based from? I might be interested as well.

If you look at the provided link, it shows what I believe to be the 1/24 Monogram '70 Trans Am kit. I'm basing that on all the molded-in detail in the engine bay. The MPC kits were kinda sparse in that regard.

I know most of us would prefer to have everything in 1/25 scale, but if these guys have done their research and offer a good product, their items, combined with the higher level of detail in the Monogram kit, will probably result in a much better model.

http://www.modelcars...l=+70 +firebirdMonty you are correct. I started with the monogram kit I know most people prefer 1/25th but this was my first time trying anything like this so I needed a good starting point. I'm setting up a photobucket account at the moment so bear with me I should have photos up soon. I added a link to the green one I did with just the Formula/Trans Am hood .

Now I remember the green car. And now that I've seen the silver one I have to have one...maybe two. As far as it being 1/24th doesn't bother me at all. I'm very familiar with the Monogram '70 1/2 T/A kit and love it. It's  my favorite T/A style...'70 1/2-'73. Please keep us up to date on production and where to pick 1 or 2 up from. I'm in!

Hi all

I heard from Sean earlier in the week and from the sounds of it he should have them ready soon..All I did was create them and he cast's and sells them so you'll need to contact him for the pricing and details. But in the mean time here's a couple of better pics of the Formula/TA hood he has to offer.

I think reliable resin used to do them.

Now that you mention it I do recall Reliable Resin doing a Firebird Trans-Am at one time.

I'm not saying anything about Reliable resins, but I do suggest any one that's interested in ordering from them do a search on them first. Some people have been satisfied but there seems to be a whole lot more that aren't.

Jeff,

 That hood looks just like the one that was on Ponch's Trans Am from Chips.

Thanks Rick. That was the look I was going for. His car was my favorite tv car when I was growing up. I did the scoops with a little more of a custom look than a stock formula. The formula hood on the silver one has a correct scoops done. Thanks Jeff

MPC made dealer promos of the 70,71,72,73 Firebird Formula 400s with that hood too....me Id like to get a hold of a 75 Trans Am or Formula to build my old 75 TA I once owned...she was a real beast loved that car!
