    Wow! I never realized the 1:1 had a mold line! Live & learn each day. Still, awesome work!

    Great job! I would pop off the fuel pump & remove the mold lines before it gets buttoned up for good.

    Great job! But I hope you don't mind a helpful comment. You forgot rule #1 in building. I think you can fix it still. You did not sand away the lettering from the maker on the chassis. Stands out like a sore thumb on a great build.

    First year for sales of a vega was 1971. Production started June of 1970.

    Something is off with the AMT 55. I cannot pinpoint it. I think the rear quarter windows are too large. I want to build a replica of mine some day but that darn AMT kit is horrible. Here is a pic of my 1:1 55 Bel-Air

    Any pics with the body panels on? My buddy built one & could never get the alignment correct.

    Tom, I had the same issue at a contest. I won NNL a few weeks before this certain contest and took the model to a large MA contest. It got honorable mention. When they gave me the ribbon the judge says that the model would have won but there was no tread on my rear tires. (street rod class) I proceeded to tell him that the owner was doing burnouts in the lot before he came in and entered the contest! He had nothing to say! No more contests.

    Engine looks great, Starter motor also.

    Wow! I'm sure that I can figure something out with all of the suggestions. If I need to cut and alclad then so be it. Not an issue. I'm just trying to see if there are any plug & play wheels out there that have a deeper rear.

    Thanks Casey, They won't work. I need deep dish for the rears. I think the resin ones on evilbay will do it.

    O=man, Pretty close! I might get a set. Joseph, Yes that was what I'm thinking to do with the Pegasus wheels.
    Thanks guys!

    Thanks, They are there but all 4 are the same size.

    I'm looking for 17" not 15"

    Trying to Replicate My 55 Bel-Air, Need 17" Torque Thrust II's
    Anyone know where to get 17" big-n-little torque thrust II's? I can find a close set from Pegasus but no deep dish on the rears. Is there a kit out there that has them in it? Thanks

    I would not use the one with the heater hoses for spark plug wires.
