    Hi thanks everyone for your comments. Have been working on a chassis that I found in the parts box and think it will work with the build to give it that fabricated look. Still have a bit more modificatins to do to it and then will be making up a flat floor pan to suit. Cheers and thanks for looking Steve

    Hi a small update of what I have been working on for the past couple of nights. Removed the rear seat and had to make up a frame to hold some flat sheet styrene so I could place rear buckets in its place. Had to brace the rear parcel shelf as it was flopping about without the seat. Will be extending the centre console to the rear of the buckets with another spare tub that I have. Thinking of doing the interior in bright red to contrast with the gold. Cheers and thanks for looking, Steve

    Hi thanks Jim for your comment. Al had to do something different with the stripe, wanted that unique look from all the other superbee's I've seen and didn't know if I was able to pull it off until I got the decals on the body and am happy the way it turned out. With the 65  from memory is the polar lights pre painted kit, that was painted a pale yellow, that I stripped the paint off and also opened the trunk. Am using the pro street superbee chassis under it and hope to be working on it after I get the superbee's finished off as everything is in mock up at the moment. Posted a couple of pics for you. Cheers Steve

    Thanks Al not sure where the stripe came from but it was just a plain stripe except a cut out for the turn signals, which I removed on this build thats where the idea of the superbee graphic came into play. The 65 is sitting in a box at the moment waiting for me to get back to it which is now painted black and using the superbee pro street chassis. Cheers Steve

    Hi I've been using super glue and talking to someone else he uses super glue with baking soda as it has more filler properties and sets like concrete. Bonus is it sands down super smooth and doesnt shrink back, an issue I had using other kinds of fillers. Hope this helps you out. Cheers Steve

    Was able to polish it out tonight as here we are in winter and was able to stick it in front of the gas heater for a couple of hours last night and seemed to cure the paint really nice. Then going thru my decal box I came across a plain black stripe that I added along with one of the dirty donny superbee decals that I got of a mate of mine. Hope to give it a clear coat in the next couple of weeks when I know the decals are nice and dry. Also added a couple of pics of it sitting next to a stock height superbee. Cheers and thanks for looking, Steve

    Hi thanks for your comments and I do agree about the scoops as looking at them in the pics they do look out of place. Cheers Steve

    Hi while waiting for the pro touring superbee to dry I decide to get a bit of paint on this one to see how the colour looked on it. Used duplicolor emerald green rattle can and will have a white vinyl top with the white rt stripe and white interior. Did start it out as a luxo style pro street but looking thru the parts box the other night ideas started and now I have came up with this. Replaced the 440 as its going into another project and dropped the hemi in. Cut up and modified a big block chev manifold to suit the hemi and added the dominator carbs. Chassis is the trusty pro street superbee unit that fitted with very minor mods and will be using the stock interior. Cheers and thanks for looking, Steve. Any comments welcome

    Hi just a quick update on the build. Have sprayed it today in duplicolor acid rush rattle can and will wait for a week or so before I give it a polish. Also found some side scoops but not sure whether I will be using them, will wait until the build progresses. Sorry about the first pic as was taken inside for mock up and had poor lighting. Cheers and thanks for looking, Steve

    Hi just a small update on this one. Wanted the scoops for a stock build Im doing as they had the moulding of the chrome trims so it was time to search for another scoop and I think I found it in a cuda scoop. Wanted to make sure that the scoop would sit flush I made the hole slightly smaller then filed the edges at an angle so it would flat with the bonnet without falling through. Have now filled up the gaps with super glue and sanded it smooth. Think it suits the build better than the standard scoops but do have another bonnet if its a failure.Here is a couple of pics of the body mods so far. Gave it a light primer coat to see if everything looked nice and smooth and appears good enough to paint when the next lot of good weather is here.Cheers Steve

    Hi got some paint on this the other day and have given it a rub back and polish then added bmf and the first set of decals. Unfortunately the stripes just started falling apart after they had dried which has never happened to me before. Now have added the white c stripes and gave it a quick mock up to see how it looks before I give it a clear coat. Cheers and thanks for looking Steve

    Thanks Phil for your comment. Had some time to paint the interior and get the majority of it together today. Used some parts box gauge decals and still fine tuning the roll cage before painting it. Next will be on to the motor. Cheers and thanks for looking Steve

    Thanks Travis and Alan for your comments. Travis I think the front springs are from the amt 41 willys kit but the front axle is from the parts box so unsure where it came from. Alan right on the money with the seats as I parted out the willys kit due to the kit just not looking right compared to the revell kit. Hope to have some paint on the interior today as the weather here in Adelaide South Australia is nice and sunny and winter is on its way. Cheers Steve

    Hi started this build back up again, need to get some of my stalled projects finished. Started work on the interior and originally I had the stock bench in the front but it just didn't look right. Searching the parts box found these buckets, think they are out of the amt willys coupe pickup kit. Needed to scratch build some bases for them as they didn't have any and although you can only see a bit of them I think they will work. Also modified the dash to accept a gauge cluster and found the old school tacho in the parts box. Swapped out the steering column for some styrene and found a steering wheel from the parts box that better suited the build. Hope to have some paint on it in the next couple of days. Cheers and thanks for looking. Any comments welcome
