    thanks
     
    if I get some time I intend to do some weathering on her (and final assembly, of course)

    does this kit come with a crew of 300 Spartans?

    thanks Jim
    I am not sure if I actually came up with this idea myself, or if I saw it online somewhere. I tried googling it by different keywords but all that came up was a millennium falcon in DOH livery.

    still a work in progress...but I always wondered how cool it would be if they painted the X wing fighter to look like a real rebel vehicle
    (the kit is an older snapkit, empire strikes back, I think)
     

     
     
    I still have quite a bit to do, mostly detail painting and final assembly, but she is close enough to tell
     
    really the only big change that needed to be made was the opening up of the motors, to fit the turbine wheels (stock on the right, modified on the left) about 30 minutes with the dremel did the trick
    the turbine wheel came from a 69 buick Riviera, and will be stripped and repainted steel


    the only other modification I made was cut out a bunch of clutter from the body to allow the flag decal to sit flush
    on second though, I should have cut a LOT more and put a whole new panel on the back, but I think it worked out

    shoot, just make a dio with only the latter part of the tail then (like that part was blown off and fell down)
    you did detail the tailgunners turret no?

    would look real if it wasn't for the palm trees in the background

    why not make it a crash site diorama?
    rip the wings of (to preserve room) and rip sections of the fuselage of so you can show the interior
    or at least poke a few .50 cal. peekholes in there

    maybe its a dealer special with Cragars included?

    the dash I need looks like this

     
    I need it for an AMT 71 duster
    but the one that is in there is a rally version, the only kit I know of that has the dash I need is the pro street cuda your redoing
    I'm sure I could modify the rallye dash, but swapping is so much easier

    mine is pretty well preserved
    she does have the see through trunk and a few little bubbles on the fender, but not bad for a 45 year old car
     
    the biggest issue I'm having is getting power to the ground
  14. diymirage added a post in a topic The Missile   

    any chance I can talk you into trading out the dash for a rallye unit?
    I need a non rallye dash for a model of my 1:1 I'm building

    I like it
    somewhat of a change from the "buick V6 swap" that's so common
