I got asked a couple of years ago by a friend in my car club if I could build him and his partner (car owner) a model replica of their race car. They provided me with the base kit and a tin of matching blue paint to start with. I've taken a pile of reference photos of the race car to help me build a reasonably accurate replica. Most of my work will be based on "eyeball engineering"- it might not be perfect but it has to "look right". Finally I've been able to make a start on it. I'm starting with the Trumpeter kit and will need to make a number of changes and a fair bit of scratch building to accomplish the final product. I hope by committing to this On The Workbench that it will keep me inspired enough to push through to the finish line. I have gathered a few bits and pieces to start the build. The Trumpeter kit will provide the body, chassis and interior. Wheels and seats are resin from The Parts Box and the 327 Chevy engine was scavenged from the 1966 Nova pro street kit by AMT. Hopefully posting at least weekly updates will keep me on track!! All comments and words of encouragement will be greatly appreciated 😀 Thanks in advance........cheers Geoff
