  1. So, some progress. I finished the hood and decided to go with this metallic green for the body color. I may do the roof in gloss black, not sure. Also may add some striping. Body needs a wet sanding and then another coat of the green, followed by some coats of clear. It's getting there.


  2. Thanks Scott.

    Yes, it is pretty much wedged in there and had to cut up the interior pan a bit. However, it is sitting on the frame. Won't look realistic, but still fun. Good thing about the turbine not being real is that you can take some liberties with the detail, which I did.

    I'm glad I stopped in on this thread. Pretty unique build you have going on here. 

    That turbine engine looks great. nice job finishing it out. You rarely see these built, even when they were new.

    But how the heck did you find one of these for only $5??????  What a steal.

    Just stumbled across it, looking for a kit with two engines, for a donor.  At the time, I did not realize how old it was, until I did a bit of research. There were two more. I'll have to go back and see if they are still there. Not a big seller, I guess. 

    Was thinking I might try to recreate the Chrysler turbo dart. Although this is not a replica of that engine.

    I've been watching. I like what you're doing. The engine is really cool and a good choice for the car. The hood will make the front end less boring.

    nice work getting you engine in. I like your hood scoop. Keep up the good work.

    Thank you both.
