1975 Monza 2+2 T/A Influenced (New Photos)

Recommended Posts

I finished this in December of 2018. I have recently discovered how to get decent photos of my models, and want to share some new photos of older builds. This was a promo model, that I built curbside. Tires are AMT Parts Pack Goodyears (absolutely beautiful!). Wheels are Minilites, purchased on Ebay. Paint is Testors' Extreme lacquer. Interior features aluminum door panels, scratchbuilt roll cage and belts made of soft metal foil. Harness hardware is leftover from photo-etched sets. I redid all the lights and side markers, to make them more realistic. Questions and comments welcome! I hope you guys  don't mind my reposting of old builds. I wouldn't,except these photos are far superior to the old ones. Thanks for looking!

Nice. I had the European version of this many years ago in metallic bronze, badge'd as the Opal Monza here.

It's great for people like me who didn't see it the first time around, looks really effective and purposeful.

Thank you, Gareth! I think they're good-looking cars.

Thanks, Nigel. I will be posting more of my old builds, as I photograph them. I hope you enjoy them, as well!

Man, I do, too! I have quite a few around here. I have a couple of flat-nosed Vegas, and three or four slant-nosed ones, too. Still have a handful of unbuilt Monzas and promos. I have always loved them.

Thanks, Carl!

That's a cool looking Monza! (How many times do we get to say that, lol?)

Not very often! There don't seem to be very many H-bodies around, anymore. Thank  you, Craig!
