Some really great work going on here. Tommy, that Impala's looking really nice, as is your builds Ashley. Yeah the plastic around the doors are always thickest I think it took me like 3 hours to get just the doors cut out on my GTX last year. Looks like you're doing pretty good with yours.
Keep it up everyone I'll be joining in shortly too, just trying to clean off the apocalyptic nightmare that is my desk. I think I heard something growl over there.

Okay, I'm within a few days of finishing the V28 (which would have been a great Cannonballer if I'd thought about it) so I have decided to start and finish what will likely be my last Cannonball racer, for a good long while. After that I've gotta get some of the WIP's that I have, finished.
So Nick, go ahead and change my entry to a Monogram 1969 GTO. The 'Cuda will have to wait until I have a better printer for decals.
Here's my un-started kits.

Well after a brave battle I've given up cleaning my workspace for now. Instead, if it's okay I would like to add a car to my line up. Some of you may remember that during the build of my '67 GTX last I ended up breaking the front windshield posts in a attempt to lower the roof line. I bought a backup model on Evilbay just in case I couldn't fix it. I didn't have to use it and it's just been sitting here so I thought it might to fun to build it up and add it to this years long rooster of cars.
Nothing has been done to the kit be me aside from a quick mock up last year, the previous owner or someone prior has everything sprayed gross black, one coat no primer. So I've been stripping the parts these past few days trying to get everything back to square one. Plans for it aren't as grand as last year, going to sand down the roof trim and badges again so it'll have a smooth body. I'm "not" lowering the roof this time (learned my lesson last year lol) it wasn't hard to fix, it was just stressful. Colors for this one will be Charcoal Grey metallic with a matte black hood.
Last years mock up.
Body and engine before bath, still soaking right now.
I'll be starting the Dart and Formula sometime next week.
