the weather has been too cold to paint anything so i started to clean up a couple kits and get them ready to paint...while the new little guy sleeps. this kit demands a little patience and is a little fiddley. the engine is very unrealistic so i cut everything off the front and am going to use a water pump assembley from a hemi...not exact but better than it was. the intake also sucks so i cut the injectors off and moved them out and added some groves to the middle. i also didnt like the headers so i made some new ones form solder. the radiator had an ejector mark in the middle of it so i cut some screen to put over it. i also thought the front end needed something so i cut it a little and added an electric razor screen. tires and rear wheels are from amt and front wheels are from the 41 willys kit. i also added to the roll cage to provide a mounting point for the racing harnesses. here is a little mockup
started this one while back. im kind of surprised that i havent seen anyone building one of these since the reissue came out recently it will be built box stock...something that i almost never do. it has a two tone interior with flocking and some detailing. the color will be a mint green. just got the body in primer today and hope to have it painted soon. here is how it sits as of now.
