    try Newt's Boneyard for both the Revell 283, and the chassis / floor pan you want. I've always had good luck finding what I want, and he's really reasonable on pricing!

    Revell's '57 Chevy has a SWEET 283..... very detailed! 1/25th scale, that is....

    Latest pics of the build... I used the floor from a '99 Silverado, since the Cameo's interior tub doesn't extend all the way out to the body/doors. I added a custom center console, as well.
    I narrowed the rear section of the frame, and added inner wheel tubs to allow for the much wider tires, and molded the taillight housings into the rear of the Cameo bedsides.

  9. ajshot58 added a post in a topic COBRA 427 "VENOM"   

    Awesome JOB!!! What's the engine gonna be? Maybe a blown 4.6?? Or.... did you ever see an article about "Daisy"... it was a FoMoCo next-gen concept of the Cobra? Had their V-10 in it.... they even had Carroll Shelby repeat his famous "circle burnout" he did in the original Cobra back in the early 60's.... Just a couple of ideas for the engine...
    You are doing an amazing job of replicating the Venom!!!! Can't wait to see it finished!!

    I like the idea of taking cues from the P51 Mustang.... maybe a darker silver on the engines to set them off..... this thing is too cool already!!! Or, maybe a pearl white, with a bright blue tribal flame motiff....

    What a SUPERB job!!!! I have a buddy that has a 1:1 '61... it is painted "Black Cherry" which is a black finish, with red highlights.... and Halibrand wheels.... we built a 440 Magnum engine, and 727 Torqueflite tranny, with a push-button shifter...

    Awesome build!! I'm assuming you scratch-built the skirts.... tell us how you did them? I'm building a '58 GMC extended cab pickup, and I want to make skirts for it.....

    Man, this thing is WAY beyond SICK!!!! A long time ago, I had a '66 Corv8.... it was a Monza with a Crown V8 conversion subframe, with a Hillborn injected L79 327... we extended the velocity stacks up through the roof, then put a Lexan scoop over them... it was bonded to the Lexan rear window..... that car was FUN!!! It would corner like it was glued to the road, and you could take a corner at 45mph, and barely chirp the tires!!!! I had to get rid of it... too many speeding tickets LOL!!!
