Greetings all!

 

So far this summer has started off with a couple of fun builds that I'd like to share.

The first is a Monogram/Revell 1978 Pontiac Trans Am. 

I painted the Trans Am with Testors Lacquer in Root Beer which I think pretty well captures Pontiac Brentwood Brown (which was the color of my first car, a 1:1 1977 Pontiac Catalina).

Super simple build. My only gripe...no Trans Am lettering, so I stole it from a MPC Blackbird kit.

 

Thanks!

 

Eric

Gorgeous. I have the 1/1 version of your car, although mine was later repainted black with the special edition decal package.
