I would like to keep and build this one. Ive been doing the flames on models (mostly customers) now for about a yr and a half and im gettin burned out on them.

It is a cool car though im looking for one for my self to build as a pro street or street rod type, no flames though on mine! lol

Nice paint job and it should do well for your club init's efforts to raise some funds.

I remember building that kit as a kid and I think I left mine in the black plastic and tried my hand a graphics with it. That was back in my firecracker days and it became one of my experiments!

I have seen that kit at Hobby Lobby along with 3 other kits packaged as a 4 pack, usually around $30 for the four of them. Keep an eye on H/L ads for their coupons and you just might find a deal! If you don't have a H/L nearby, let me know and I would be willing to pick it up for you. We can work something out (wink wink).

Thanks,

Mike Scheve
