Recommended Posts

Did this one a while back. Body,glass,partial tub,and partial firewall and inner fenders is Johan.

Did add some trim for vinyl roof and used alu tube for exhaust,the kit parts was to small.

Chassis,drivetrain,most of the interior sides,seats,console,dash etc are Revell.

Used MCG photo-etch set for emblems and grills,also some interior parts.

Big thanks to fiatboy helping out with the wheels and also used the exhaust.

It has a 71 color scheme,i did not realize until i was close to done. All w30 was

put together in Lansing,i read some say 10 or 12 of these got the red inner fenders

but i have not got it confirmed so i did not take the chance,also it was mostly for fun.

Here are some pictures,thanks for looking.

This build is remarkable for so many things, including the stance, paint and overall detailing, not to mention your use of appropriate Johan and Revell parts to achieve these results.   Nicely done.

If I could make one small suggestion, I'd recommend that you cut the side stripes where they cross the door lines.  I'm guessing it could still be done easily with a decal solution and a sharp #11 blade.  Just a thought.
