It was a fun little curbside build.

Great model of an iconic racecar.  Jim Hall ushered in a new era with his ideas about aerodynamics.

I know its a bit after the fact, but any WIP photos? I've got two or three parts cars and yours looks like a great inspiration to see if I can make one good one out of them.

That is VERY cool! (I wonder if the molds for this series still exist?) Well done and model on! B)

You have done a very nice build of this iconic racer.  I saw it race and you have brought back some great memories.  Thanks for sharing.

Really well done.  Very clean.  One of my favorite race cars fro the sixties. Too bad there was never a Tamiya or Fujimi kit of the Hall cars complete with engines.  Missed opportunity   Or even the Cobra Daytona Coupe, Ford GT Mark IV, the variations of the Chaparral and a nice blue King Cobra rear engine roadster .  Too bad, but you did a great job on it.  Many years ago I did a heavily modified "Modelers" Chaparral as I found the kit to be far too "toy like".

Sorry not many. This is a very simple curbside kit that was meant to adapted to slot racing. I built it basically out of the box except for the decals. Here's what I have though....I had to rebuild a broken axle stub..

Now that would be a great. It was part a four car series. These would be great candidates for reissue. Thanks.

Thanks. I'm working up the courage to attempt to build my IMC 2E kit. That should be a challenge! LOL.

Very nice build Ron.  I have a number of Chappies but not this one.  I have however painted all the AMT  1/24th scale racing car kits for a good mate.

Regards
