Following ShawnS again..... If you are not following his build then do it. The craftsmanship on the Falcon is mind blowing & he has done some other incredible builds on our ozautobuilders site. The man is an artist. Good stuff !!!
Thanks for the comments on the Shelby. Colour will be a traditional blue & white like the original (cos I like it!) but a little darker as per the helmet shown below.
For those who want to have a go...front guard extensions are AMT '25 cycle guards cut in half trimmed & filled. Rear guards are off a very old Bandai 1/20 Fiat X1/9 kit.... VERY old. Roof & wing were from a weird Aoshima "Toyota 2000GT Turbo Racer' I found at a garage sale. The roof had to be split & norrowed a little but it was spooky how close the front edge fitted the Shelby screen. Mind you, the molding was so thick it could be filed down to fit anything. I'm sure the Viper roof will be cool too, it seems to have the right profile. Bonnet bulge is the seat back from the kit.
And for those who have thought about this conversion, have a go. You don't have to go the GT3 route, I would like to see a road going version & maybe a door slammer (no kidding). How good would a stretched & smoothed door slammer look !!!. Hmmm now thats got me thinking... might have to go cruzing on ebay after this.
Have a good one
