    Thanks for the nice comments. I've always wanted to build something starting with this engine, this convertible Firebird looks like a good idea for me

    1969 Firebird OHC 6 Sprint Convertible
    Hi guys,
    Back with a new built, this time a 1969 Pontiac convertible ( just in time for the end of summer  ) from mpc. A highly modified kit as I've use the Revell underside just to have a detailed chassis, OHC engine is the one on the box with some detailing, interior has been upgrade with hte Revell Firebird door panel which were way more accurate than the original flat MPC one, it's my first time with the use of MCG photoetch kit which was very useful in this case with the right "OHC six" and "Sprint" emblems. Wheels are a mix of old Johan one with some AMT bottom and MCG material, tires are the red lines from AMT. Now the hard part of the deal : the hood, the one provide in the MPC kit was the T/A model, the one in the Revell kit was the inaccurate Ram Air one. So I've mix the Street Machine hood with a part of the stock one to have the good model. Unfortunatly, I don't know if it's part of the modification or maybe the painting process but I couldn't get it straight !!!! Maybe the body wasn't that straight also so I think I will show it with the open hood, anyway I let you judge. I've modified the front headlight also to have more accurate look, I've rechrome the front bumper/grill with BMFas the original one was tired. Windshield is from the Revell kit also.
     Hope you'll like it anyway !!!

    Well done, I like the german license plate on it !!! Looks pretty close to your 1/1, only the original sits a bit higher on the rear !!

    Very nice !!! Is it a resin body or a Johan one ? To me this kit is one of the best Muscle Car kit available, still have to build mine also....
