Here's a couple of shots of the parachute, I'm just waiting for the paint to get good and dry before I mount it. You can see the little stripped plug wire I've got coming out of the chute to make a horseshoe clip with that I'll run the cable into, and , you can also see, (maybe) , the brackets coming off the back of the plate for mounting it. Cheers!
It's been a journey, but , that's what it's all about right? I've learned some things on this build which will carry over into other builds I guess. The payoff is that these cars can look so darn cool when finished. (I never say 'darn' 1:1). Maybe when the weather turns warmer you'll get inspired.
Wow, thanks Ace, I think what may have saved the horse livery, (lol) , is the fact that it had 'white' accents that I couldn't see with the backing paper, so , once applied you have red/white/and black as the main colors on the body, that's a strong color combo. As far as you building one half as good,...I thought of your red Falcon many times on this build. I don't think you need to worry about that. Thanks for all the input, I'm not sure I would have this car without it. I've almost got the 'chute ready to mount, I will post a few pics soon.
