Box Stock Hasegawa '72 Toyota Celica Road Racer

But... as soon as I started on it, it became apparent that it may not be as quick as I had thought. This is likely a version of a stock Celica kit, so it turns out there is a lot of hole-filling and a few other mods needed to the body on this one.
I got started anyway...
Thanks for looking!

Art.... looking good brother!! I am looking forward to seeing this project come to life I know you will kill it just like the rest of your builds.

Neat! Are you going to paint it the same as it shows on the box?
Thanks for the comments, guys. I appreciate you all looking in.
I got just a little more bodywork in this weekend. the instructions provided a full scale template to locate it, so I made a masking tape template I could transfer to the body to mark the hole.

never saw this version before. Did the other version not so long ago. Not a bad kit. the finish product turned out pretty good. You look like you are heading to a very great build. here is a picture of the one I did, turn it into a street car version.

As for the chassis, they are color matched to the body. They spray some undercoating and then the color on top.
Here's my take on the chassis
I used the street version kit and made my own flares and front spoiler.

looks like fun
the one plus of not finding reference photos of a subject is you have control of the build...nobody else has it either, but there will be someone out there who knows everything there is to know about the dang car
the minus is it gives you choices instead of just duplicating a model of the real thing
be keepin' an eye on it
