With all respect to Mr. Starbird. Here's my version. Just finished it up. Had a lot of fun building it.

Not exactly a plausible subject... but very clean and nicely done.  B)

 

(btw... not to be a nag, but it's PREDICTA, not PERDICTA).  ;)

 Thanks Harry, I appreciate you pointing out my mistakes. Could you define for me what is "plausible" ? You know, just so I don't screw up again.

Sounds like you're being sarcastic. What I meant is that it's very unlikely that a show car would ever have been turned into a gasser or some sort of drag car. It's not a "mistake," since this is your model and you can build it any way you want. But I still say it's an implausible subject. Nicely done... but implausible. Feel free to disagree with me.  ;)

looks very cool , i like the color ..

looking at the model as it is right now i got the idea it would be cool to buils one like this but make a scratch build roof or maybe a front window and do a convertable ..

lots of  things you could do to this kit i think :)

 All good Harry, I was trying to understand what you meant. I did fat finger the title and didn't catch it till you pointed it out. Thanks for your input.

I think it's plausible to make a show car in gasser style, that's the beauty of a show car to me, you can do what you want.

I like it

Thanks all, I appreciate all your comments. I enjoyed building this one and it was kind of a slump buster for me. I know it's a little "different" and not everyone's "cup of tea" but "some times ya feel like a nut, some times ya don't" Anyone remember what product that tag line is from?

I like it! Looks like a cool old '60's build you'd see in Model Car Science. I can think of a 1:1 show car that became a funny car......the Dodge Charger III body was used for the Flying Dutchman FC.

I like it

 

It's a model car, it can be anything the voices in your head tell you to build.   Back when I did the '32 Ford with the VW chassis under it (representing a kit car) the judges critique was that it didn't place because it was an improbable build.  What did win the class?  A '39 Chevy with a Ferarri drivetrain. Somehow that was more realistic to them!

 

I like the build. I like it anytime someone does something with a kit that we haven't seen done before!
