X-15 STINGRAY!

 

 

The Stingray started as a Tom Daniels Cherry Bomb Show Rod. Parts from an AMT Romulan Warbird, Revell F-14 Tomcat and a Revell 1959 Impala were used to turn the Stingray into a Space Rod.

 

 

I tried to build the Stingray in a "Tom Daniels Style", something like Tom might do. I have been inspired by Tom's Great Designs for years, hope you like it!

 

WIP Photos are in the "All The Rest" Section...

Another very cool and unique build from your bench! I like seeing how you build these, since you do very big body modifications, but at the end everything looks so nice and clean, just like they came from the factory like that. Bodywork is always done very well, just like here. Nice work.
