    so, again i had a few minutes this morning. the pattern was "in process" all weekend. grabbed some rudimentary tools and formed the body. don't know if it's a keeper yet but, for now it works.
    tools needed.

    pattern.

    roughed in body. still needs a cowl.......and a nose. also made a dual chute mount for the rear.

    side view.

    so i had a few minutes this morning and i wanted to get something done on this car. i've been ignoring her way too long. so, i found a pair of headers i started like 7 years ago and they have sitting since. I KNOW they are absolutely not what you'd want to put on this car but, they're made, they're here and they look kinda cool. so here's the question guys........use 'em or lose 'em? any thoughts?
     

     

     
    i also started the body pattern for the minimalist version of an R.E.D.

     

     
    as soon as i get permission to say who, there is also a VERY cool new scoop waiting in the wings.

    i googled it and apparently mpc made one. there may be others. maybe one of the other members could chime in and help,  as i am not the most up -to-date 1/24-1/25 model builder.

    aaron, have you made a choice as to which you'll build first? looks like you have an awesome selection. personally, i'm leaning towards the chevette. looks pretty radical.
