Red Alert

hey Guys, just wanted to post a pic of my Red Alert, just out of the spray booth! I used the newly released Slixx decals and used the 70 SS 454 snap tite kit, as I’m just doing a curbside. I just wanted it in 1/25scale to go with my 1/18 version. I couldn’t find the full 1/25 kit anywhere and didn’t want to buy it off eBay. ( sick of it ) the hood decals were a little tricky around the cowl induction area and I had to cut them to get them to lay right, then touch it up a little.

does anyone know what the actual car ran for wheels? 5 hole slotted?

Great looking paint and decals. I remember reading many profiles on this car and it's owner. I remember a couple of different wheel combinations from the pictures in the articles so as Ace pointed out you could use several different wheel combs.

Thanks for the info and pics! I actually ordered both types from comp resins so I can decide when I mount them. This is going to be a quick one, as it’s a one piece body, but I needed to do a quick project, just to see something finished. I seem to do the body, set it aside then leave it until I’m in the mood. But, the painted bodies I never get tired of looking at!

I will just add interior detail to it. I have to remember to make an automatic shifter.!

I wanted to send a couple of updates on the Red Alert. I’m trying to add some detail, as it’s only a curb side. I fabricated the roll bar and added the correct automatic shifter. The body is foiled and the bumper assemblies are complete. I added a column mounted tach and I’m going to add the racing harness. I’m still waiting for the rear motor fly wheels from comp resins, or I just might use Spyder wheels.

UPDATE ALMOST FINISHED,  I mocked it up with both rear wheels, I just can’t decide which one to use. I still need wheel backs, but that’s about  the slicks are too wide, but the resin 70s pro stock/super stock are wider!
