Olive Drab 32 Five window , fuel injection mounted

Recommended Posts

My mind started wandering this weekend as I looked at a can of Tamiya olive drab . I opened a Revell 32 5 window that I had chopped years before , grabbed the hiboy deuce rolling stock and started mock up . I'll 8 stack the 392 hemi and use the lakes exhaust from the AMT phantom Vicky .

Thanks looking in , Jeff .

The body proportions look perfect and the ride height looks spot on. I like the finish on the wheels. Or you going to leave it shiny or go with a flat finish ?

Today I flared some 3/32 aluminum tubing for the injection stacks . Will add fuel rails and install .

Today I mixed up a bit of Epabond and glued the injection in place . I tried to be as precise as possible .

Thanks Jeff .

Excellent build with all the right proportions and stance. Your color choice is very different and I like that,should stand out on any display table or show case.Thanks for sharing.

Koooooool!

I dig the wheels/tyres, as well.

That's a good tip for getting the velocity tubes level.

How did you flare the ends? With a ball-punch or a wide cone, of some sort?

I never show my builds, either. You guys are the only people who see them. And that's good enough for me 😉
