Karl LaFong Posted October 1, 2022 Share Posted October 1, 2022 What do you get when you combine these two kits? Hopefully the 1969 Petty ride that never was. Luckily the wheelbases of the two kits are very close, so major hacking wasn't required. I sanded off the side trim and windshield wipers, radiused the front wheel openings, opened the gas tank cover, and added the spoiler from the Torino kit. While the front end looks like it's too high, when I glue the chassis pan to the body it should sit lower. The color will be Tamiya French Blue. Petty ran dark blue wheels in '69, but I liked the look of white wheels (my fantasy, my choice). The Johan OHC engine was built as a 429. I wish the molds for the Torino could be found! 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
