Started fooling with this recently, took some liberties with color and decals, I think it looks pretty cool so far, time will tell if it works out.......

Pretty cool! It'll look even better if you cut your flame decals along the door lines and then hit them with a decal setting agent or solvent.

Ya, I plan to try to get a good looking panel line in there as I go along.  Not used to having so much decal on the side of a body, lol.

Decided against doing anything with the panel lines for fear of ruining the whole thing, so went ahead and just built the thing , thanks for looking

You said that you took some liberties with this build.....that is what makes model building fun...keep at it. Your model is super clean and nicely detailed. I might have missed it but...is that color Big Bad Blue AMC color?

I'm not a big fan of the square bodied Fords of that time frame, but that one sure has a lot of attitude. I like it.

Those flame decals look great on that car. Where did you get them from?

Thanks, the flame decals are from the revell California wheels 66 Chevy elcamino kit.

Really nice build. A question if you would. Do you ever glue the chassis to the body? I've seen this in the club and was wondering.

I have found that the newer tool kits have a pretty good ‘friction fit’ if you will, so no need to glue the chassis to the body really.
