    Tulio, I think you're starting to like those Chevys  Great work, one of your best that I've seen.

    Thanks Ernesto! Sorry I missed your post initially.

    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.

    I like it, including the skirts. 'Very' clean work TJ. Looks like you got that grill to fit well.

    Ok Richard, the bars do look kind of thin, let's take her out for a test spin and punch on the gas and see how she holds up!

    Thanks a lot JC, I don't think the 4 looked that bad, just not very realistic I guess, (" hey, what's with the giant 4 on the red Mustang?). I got the 285 from the Double Dragster kit, along with the snorting horse.  
    I'm in the process of painting the parachute now, I made some little brackets for it that mount onto the back plate, and then attach near the bumper. It's my first time doing a parachute like this, it's not too bad so far. Peace.
