So a while back I built the 2010 Shelby GT500 by Revell. Needless to say, it didn't turn out. Left finger prints on my paint, chassis to body was all messed up. Was not happy with the final product.
Can we say "Rebuild"!?!?!
I decided that since this model was "A Failure" to me, I would try my hand at my very first build with scratch building. I guess this would be considered as Kit Bashing although I have no intentions of using parts from another kit, just a lot of aftermarket parts.
Please feel free to post tips, tricks, techniques, and/or anything else regarding this build. Since this is my first, I'm not expecting or even pursuing perfection. This is a major learning experience for me and thus far, I have learned quite a bit and now have A LOT more respect for those who scratch build entire cars.
**Sorry I did not take Before pictures**

Cut the front clip from the body. Also removed the center section of the hood for the motor placement as well as remove the front grill pieces.
