I have had this kit for a while. It was the one that was molded in metallic blue. It was in rough shape and missing most of its parts so I turned it into a barn/field find.

I made all the glass from clear plastic, used tape to "weather" the Super Bee stripe, and added some dents, rust, and primered panels

A couple tires and some body work and she would be good as new!

The owner is even ready to sell it!

Ouch, rust in the pillars isn't looking too good

Looks great. I think most of it will buff out, and with some soap and water it'll look like it just came off the showroon floor.

Now that looks very realistic ,  not overdone like most I 've seen .  In fact I saw one just like it last weekend at a local salvage yard !

 Excellent job !

Nice job Kevin, it makes me want to cry! Are you the same Kevin Kovach who used to compete in the model contests at Riders Hobby Shop in Madison Heights, MI? If you are I'm sorry I never got to meet you. I worked there part time from '93 to '01 and I remember some of your builds. They always had that "gotcha" factor where you had to go back and keep looking at them.

Thanks everyone!

 

Dan, I'm a different Kevin Kovach, I'm from Maryland and I was born In '93. I do remember seeing a scale auto contest issue with another guy named Kevin Kovach though, a clean build too.

Well, you got my attention with your B so I had to ask. With the right surroundings it could pass for real.

Very nice weathering, just one thing, you forgot to weather the wheels.
