  1. Finished up the interior and added the photoetch keys. Wired and plumbed engine and fuel tank sender Made/modified exhaust to fit
  2. Made some good progress this past week Got the Bodywork roughed in and body in primer. Used the vette engine bay but removed the molded in battery to repace it with a better one. painted and detailed the chassis. Chassis was stretched to fit modified body. New motor/trans mounts
  3. Some more progress yesterday Had to lengthen the 56 chassis Now set up with the corvette wheels and tiresmostly still fitting things together now once everything fits properly it will be disassembled and bodyworked thanks for looking! comments always welcome
  4. Thank you Jonathan! I never knew there was a resin kit
  5. Thanks Koellefornia Kid One of my favorites also along with the corvette corvair
  6. Superbird, That looks great! Its a favorite of mine also. What color are you planning?
  7. Thanks ismaelg Yeah its a challenge. Always wantet to build one though. Probably going to add instead of section. Just so the floor or interior dont have tl be modified.
  8. 54 is the concept im trying to replicate using the 53 corvette and 56 nomad
  9. Mitchy, thats what make a challenge. Other than the corvette corvair concept, it one of the coolest looking ones
  10. Thanks geetee its going together well so far.
  11. Back on the bench with a 1954 corvette nomad. Building for a club build-off deadline is two months this is where im at so far everything is fitting well next is to lengthen the chassis to get the right wheelbase now that the body can be used to measure.
  12. Nice to see a Pontiac built your detail and research make a great replica. Having a 1:1 57 Pontiac in my garage, I'm really happy to see another Jason
  13. I'm workin on a few at the moment wouldn't mind joining in if this old thread kicks up Jaaon
  14. Getting this project back on the bench. Haven't had much building time lately but now that things have slowed down I finished up alot of bodywork and got everything primered. Still need to change the grill opening but at least got the rear fenders done. Happy with the progress so far sill have a ways to go though thanks for looking.... Jason
  15. So its been a long time since my last update. Been working on this alot recently although there isnt much to show for it but here we go. Been working with brass and aluminum! A first for both and soldering brass also. For my firt time working with brass im really happy with the rear end so far. The spool gear assembly needs to be redone ill use this one to measure and make one correctly. The ring and pinion set is the second attempt. Once the spool assembly is right ill cut the gears. Also went with wheels from micro nitro well worth the money Any questions comments or opinions welcome Jason
