I'm back! At least for a few posts.  So, a quick update on my situation:  I have not bought a home yet, but I have moved out of my old place and into a cheaper place that's just as nice.  I'm still looking into a home and talking things over with a lender.  I didn't want to start any builds until I moved into a more permanent home, but they've been piling up and it's going to take awhile to get them all built.  So, I decided to build a few and save the boxes to make sure they don't get damaged when i do finally move.

 

So...........here is my first of the new year.  It's a 1971 Trans Am based on the Revell model of a 1970.  It's a very nice model and I highly recommend it.

I like the red color and the paint finish. So often seen in white with blue stripe or blue with the white stripe, this really stands out. Good luck with your search for a new home. so many lenders can be a real pain I know.

It does stand out in red and I do think in 71 as Eric is representing this one as the color lineup did expand, the reason that this kit is so often seen in the white with the blue stripe or the reverse is that were the only two color choices for the Trans Am model in 1970. You could have the Firebird in any of the colors Pontiac offered for it, but for the true Trans Am, they were only offered in white or blue, expanded for just white with blue stripes in 1969.

Awesome build. I like it a lot in red. Most people do them in blue or white.

That looks great in red Eric, nice job and I agree, this is a nice kit to build. I actually used it to create a '73 in Brewster Green which is a very rare color on the Firebird.

That is true. 1969 and 1970 were white or blue cars only.
