80s issue bought for a fiver (considering how rare these are), but it was started with some things glued and tons of parts missing but luckily had most of the main essential parts intact. Had to fab up grill inserts using mesh screening, headlights from a 57 Bel Air, and a parts dashboard modded and trimmed down from a AMT drag car of some sort. Most of the suspension parts were ether missing or glued to bonded mush so cooked up a C4 front suspension and rear from a Monogram Monte Carlo. The V12 flathead engine was glued to high hell and the wonky molded in v8 headers weren't appealing, so in went a Viper v10 with custom intake tubes and radiator. Wheels and Tires were from the Cali wheels issue 57 Bel-air and a 5th extra was found to act as a de-facto spare tire since the kits piece was missing. Paint is Tamiya Clear Orange over Rustoluem Aluminum cleared with future, and some tribal decals were spares from one of the 66 Impalas I built.
just getting ready for this one . so i thought i would make a build tread for it .. its a complete 1972 kit but weirdly enough there is some extra parts in the box . like extra roofs both cab and vinyltop and there is also extra axles and a extra interior tub . might come in handy in the future for other builds . i like the look of the 41 but i really cant stand that Humpback whale style trunk .it just has too much junk in the trunk . so ive decided to cut it of and just give the whole car more of a custom rod look. will possible also fill in all bumper mounting holes . just make the body really clean. and do something fancy with the hood . colors i dont know yet and ofcourse it will be lowered the body in the kit has a broken a pillar but its in the kit so it can be fixed . here,s what im thinking with the trunk let me know what you think . and ideas is always welcome .
hey so just finished my Biggest Build yet i was pretty ambitious and just went for it . this build saw me trying airbrushing for the first time and also working with putty . i wanted to remove the Hump (trunk ) of the continental to make it look like my vision for it. and i also made the hood open side ways and lowered it . i had some problems along the way but it is only my 4th build ever . so all in all im very pleased with the result . i hope you guys like it . im very thankful for all the freindly folks that followed the build so many great and encouraging comments along the way . oh i keept the Trailer of the build tread but i used the Trunk area that i removed and build a little teardrop trailer around it . just for fun ... here it is so that is it . i really pused the limit of my skills on this . im still a noob afterall . anyway im pleased ...
I got lucky and scored one of these off eBay for a decent price. The chrome is in terrible shape and it's missing a tail light. Thankfully I've got 3 of the convertible version of this kit laying around and can get what I need for it. I bought this with the intention of cutting the hood out of the body to reveal the engine compartment. I'm going to completely swap the promo chassis/engine plate for one of my kit chassis. The more I think about this, the worse of an idea I think it is. What would you do?
