68 Firebird 400 (updated 2/10/2019)

Recommended Posts

Nice job.  Despite my username, I really like the '67 - '68 Firebirds and I almost bought a '67 twenty years ago.  Still kick myself over that one, but it just seems like too much needed doing...

This version of the kit is defintely the one to get vs. the Foose version.  My only beef with it is that the engine looks much too wide.  The '60s AMT and Revell Pontiacs look correct, but this one just seems 'off'.

This is looking beautiful! Love your color combo. I did one years ago in Root beer with the light ivory (parchment) color.

Okay, so as you can see, I fixed the steering wheel that was upside down.  And almost everything is done.  Will just need to let the wheel decals dry.  How do you like the redline tires?

I like the final look with the body color and the HO Stripes and the Red Lines. I remember the local Pontiac dealer who stocked a lot of Firebirds and they all had the new wide tread tires and most of them were the Red Lines.
