The family race car (update 2/24/2018)

Recommended Posts

It is an amt dodge Monaco on a new revell nascar chassis with a 440engeine/727 auto trans from the revell Dodge Dart.

as you can see the roll cage will need to be modified to work with the four doors and I will have seats in the back. The frame needed to be cut 3mm on each side to fit. 

Im not sure on colour yet but I am thinking rusty.

Comments, Criticism, suggestion all welcome.

Add a baby seat?

Thanks and I had thought about a baby seat but I’m not sure yet. 

I got the engine mocked up.

I like the concept. Great job on the Roll Cage.  I agree you should ad a Baby Seat if you can find a realistic looking one.

Thanks.

I got a bit more done on the rollcage today. There is still more stuff I need to add to it but it is getting close to being done. I only have two more sticks of styrene rod left so hopefully it’s enough.

let me know what you think.

I started thinking about the engine today and I am stumped on the colour for it. I have 3 ideas in mind either orange, black or turquoise? (I am leaning toward turquoise) but what do you guys think.
