Very nice, those Plymouth kits always fit this build really well.

Greetings my friends. The last two years or so my modeling time has been occupied with other pursuits. I do apologize for being absentee on this CBP. I think this build off is of great interest to vintage racing fans so there's no reason it should end. I encourage everyone to continue participate far beyond the end of this year, as no doubt the actual race will continue. I will eventually get back into it, and when I do, my '51 is at the top of my list. Take care.

I love the idea behind this one, but sadly it looks like I'm finishing year 7 on the no building streak.  One of these days I'll get back to this.

Awesome detail on that Plymouth. 

Sorry, my Mustang never got off the ground. Due to health issues,  I just couldn't get it started. I only built two models for the year, both community builds, I wanted this to be the third....

Although the deadline has been removed I still plan to have my Karmann-Ghia done by years end.

Yesterday I got the dash fitted and its a go. I designed it based on a stock KG dash and added a switch pod, and a CB radio under the glove compartment.

After seeing the progress I decided to do a quick pre-paint mockup, adding my stowage.

I managed to hinge the deck lid but the hood (trunk?) didn't have enough clearance so it won't be hinged unless I can come up with some side hinges.

Barring some unforeseen issue or me dropping the thing on the floor it will be done soon.

So after struggling with the chassis from the GTO and problem on finding some of the parts I had a look at my Camaro that I started a while back and I might go a head with this for the P2P. Made the start on a cage and also made the wheel choice I think. Stock size tires on all four corners will help when struggling to find a spare in The bush.

Well, I didn't get my KG finished in time to make my year-end deadline, so I'll just do a status update. I still have to put the decals and placards on, add some driving/fog lights, skid plates, and mud flaps.

It's been a challenging, yet fun build. Faux pas notwithstanding.
