HI!

I was blessed to find a  Johan 72 Torino Track racer, mint, for 30$. So... Modified the platform, chassis, front & rear suspensions, shaved emblems, markers, door handles, and added Revell's 2013 Boss 302 powertrain and rolling stock. Amt 66 nova seats (4). Scratchbuilt: interior panels, firewall, console, arm rest, brake lever, shifter, cup holders, speaker enclosure, rear platform, radiator panel + hood inverted hinges & air filter. Hosed & wired. Tamya's Racing white & Testors Wet Look clear. BMF, Molotow & Krylon chrome finishes. 

I had a very busy spring, having to deal with an inherited estate... but now, it's back to the bench! Four other cars are waiting, so, excuse me, I gotta go...

Hours of fun with styrene!

Man, that thing is slick !! 

I hope I can come up with a look that cool when I finally do up my snap kit. 

 

Hi Steve!

I suspect the snap version may have a promo type chassis-platform. Might complicate lowering?

Hi Steve!

Thanks. I suspect the snap kit may have a simpler chassis, like a promo? Might be harder to rake to your liking...
