Not sure on what to use. Just want to know if you are building other cars from the movie. I loved that movie . Great cars.

I'm not sure on what brand of kit or if it's 1/24 or 1/25 but you need a 1984 Corvette for the rear panel. A Glue Bomb Eckler Vette might work for the hood and body. I have one let me dig it out and I'll get pics.

From what I can tell, here's what you're going to need to pull this off:

1) AMT Eckler's Corvette for front fender flares (slight modifications needed) and headlight buckets.

2) 1980-1982 MPC Corvette for the nose piece. The Dragon Vette, which MPC labels as a 1982, will have this as well as the rear window louvers.

3) The rear end cap is definitely from a C4 ('84-96). MPC made a bunch of them and they're generally fairly cheap, so finding a match for this shouldn't be difficult.

4) Rear spoiler could probably be made from the one in the '69 Cougar, or make it yourself (huge sag in middle optional)

5) You're on you own when it comes to the hood. Maybe one of the resin casters has one.
