Thank you, yes I still remember those crappy orange plastic parts and huge flashes everywhere, not to mention those incorrect wheel position. It took me quite a while to clean it up but I`m happy with what turns out in the end :)

Really nice build, looks absolutely amazing!  I love GTO'S  of all years but the 72 is definitely one of my favorites.    Thanks.    Jeff

I agree wholeheartedly with this sentiment!! I have this kit in my stash because it's my best friend's favorite car, so I'll try to make it into something nice for him.

Question:  How did you fix the rear bumper?  Did you cut it, find an old issue kit with a proper fitting one or is that aftermarket?

Phenmomenal job on all 3, btw!!  Just amazing builds!

Thats probably one of the nicest builds Ive seen of that 72 GTO, I like the side windows too, nice touch.

That 4dr Chevy beater looks very realistic, so does the 'vette and you did a fine job on that Goat, which Mpc and later RC2 and Round-2, milked for far too long, an all new kit of the '68-'72 era is badly needed and hopefully wanted too.

Wow, this build is great, I like the wash in the door and bit lines.

Thank you Kevin! I actually didn`t really fix the rear bumper, I just shaved the body rear panel and used bondo to make it to fit the bumper.

Thanks, I really like to put side windows on a car model so it looks it can be properly left on the curbside.
