That’s so nice. I’ve wanted to build this car for a while. What hood scoop did you use?

Excellent job on this 1986 movie car. Maybe its my tired old eyes, but the 1:1 seemed to be a slightly darker shade of metallic grey.

1968 Ford F-Series

This is a great site for examining vehicles used in movies...

Thanks, it was a little tough matching the color exactly depends on what light you see it in, same with my build it darkens some indoors, the car in your pic also isn't the actual car, they built like 7 stunt cars for the movie

I believe he used something called a JATL. It was a new 9mm submachinegun at the time, and I don't remember hearing too much if anything about them since. No doubt they went OOB.
