I got this one on clearance only to find it was missing the wheels and tires and the chassis is warped really bad.  I decided instead of getting a new model I would build this one on the super stallion chassis.

The poor super stallion may be unrecoverable after im done cutting all the body parts I want off.  Oh well  :D

I made four cuts along the tops of each fender and then gently stretched them and added styrene and filler.

I have to cut the stock hood and graft in the center of the super stallion.

I too think the super stallion has a great engine, I think it will look right at home under the hood.

Made a little progress with the body work.  I think the ground effects may have gotten a little out of control.  I guess its time to coat her with primer and choose a paint scheme.  Any ideas guys?

I suggest a dark metallic blue with either white or silver stripes OR red with black stripes.

I think we need to see the chassis mocked up and see where the ride height is, to better gauge the ground effects.
