Wow!

 

Nice transformation! I knew there was potential in that old Monogram kit, now if they'd just reissue it ;)

That is super cool! I like the slammed look and the colors. The fender skirts are a neat touch. Nice work!

"lots of modifications" that's a bit of an understatement, I'm at a loose for words, very cool.

Wow, you just made that kit look very appealing! Best I've seen one of these kits built. Love the colors and the foiled roof strips.
