Yea, that's so close to the one I'm building right now. 

I'll be watching to see what you do with it also.

Thanks guys for your enthusiasm toward this project. I have been looking forward to getting this and seeing what I can do with it. Perhaps something close to this idea.6c9d3377a3ef1829ae7a5f3c17f6260c.jpg.e16d978516009faadad6375e900cd446.jpg

First view, upon opening the mailing box.

Here's what was inside yonder Viper box:

And...I already have a helper onboard!

The ladybugs visit the hobby room from time to time.

Yup, there's definitely worse cars you could take inspiration from.  😉

You're welcome Scott and thank you for the Racers Wedge! Today I found a few more that I want to get rid of. A '61 or '62 Tempest four door, '59 Mercury and a '74 Challenger. My project pile isn't getting any smaller. But, I have a couple of models that I at least have more interest in.

I've had two smooth as silk trades with Tom and Scott. They made trading easy! Through them, I've acquired two '71 Chevies. All I need to do now is pay stupid money for a '72 and Round2 will announce a reissue! Here's what I've done to the first '71.

The plan is to build it like the boxart. Only it'll be a short bed. I may even use the side pipes.

That looks pretty good Roger. Nice work so far. Now what you need is a 70 grill like I have.

If you don't have any plans for that grille Tom, I'd like to work out a trade with you.

I'll remember that Tom! LOL! I thought you may have had one kicking around. I have a mint '68. I want to hack on it. But, hate to at the same time.

Yeah, 68 would be nice. Here is what I have left out of 31 kits of 67- 72 GMC and Chevy pickups and Blazers/Jimmy's. I also have about 4 or 5 that need rebuilt.

I had that and the Open road camper at one time when I was a little 2 young to build by myself, it was  patience more than age. LOL  My cousin took it home to help me build it and I never seen it again. Thta is Ok he has repaid me in beer over the years.  I sure would like another crack at that version also. I do have the blazer release.
