1/8 scale Monogram Pontiac Turbo Trans Am

Recommended Posts

I did one of these way back when. Mine had the base and the headlights and taillights worked. Heck, I still have the instructions sheet long after the kit disappeared!

If I recall correctly, you may want to think about putting a heavier spring in the front suspension. The ones provided are relatively weak and make the front end sag after being displayed for a short amount of time.

I'll be watching this build!

I gotta agree, that is a GREAT color for it! It makes me wonder if the sheer size of them things don't scare people off! i have quite a few of them, an I DON'T have enough room to build and display them! Which is a shame, cause the ARE nice! Hope you got alot of room for that rascal, cause it'll be a NICE lookin model to display when it's done!biggrin.gifwink.gif

Thanks god it's not me who has to provide the real estate to accomodate it. It's already promised to a friend.

Wow, I'd never guessed that the colour is this popular!

It wasn't my choice really, the guy at my local paint shop suggested it and did the painting.

Don't get me wrong, I like it too, but I shouldn't get the credit for it.

I love the color! Is that the 79' or 80' TA? I have a 80' turbo TA 1/8 scale still waiting to be refinished.

Great colour! I built only 2 of the 1/8th scale Monogram kits, this one and the '79 Vette, back then. I still have them, tucked away until I can finish my basement, and be able to display them.
