Body, interior tub, rear valance from 1969 annual and vacformed glass. It's going for a bath in Bleche White in preparation for a coat of primer.

I already had the Bandit Resin six pack hood. The next time you see this one it will be painted.

I shot a lite coat of Tamiya primer on the Barracuda to assist me in the body work. Also picked out some wheels and tires.

DSCN0230-vi.jpg

All the emblems and side markers will be shaved MPC Motorsports style. Wheels are 19" Aoshima Racing Hart Type CR's with Revell tuner tires in the front.

DSCN0232-vi.jpg

These wheels came with a dark gunmetal finish and will compliment the silver metallic finish I have planned for it.

Hope you enjoy and stay tuned for more updates.

The wheels and tires are from Aoshima. They sell wheel and tire sets separately. These are Racing Hart Type CR's that most likely came in one of their JDM tuner or drift car kits. Some US hobby shops sell these but they can be ordered from Hobby Link Japan or Hobby World Japan and other online hobby sources.

Are the wheels the same size or do you just have smaller diameter front tires on? I have loads of Fujimi and Aoshima wheel/tire sets (just not these :( ) Thanks for the info, the project looks fantastic and the wheels look perfect on it.

Front tires are from a Revell tuner kit. I removed about a quarter of an inch of the back side of the wheels to match the width of the new tires. The Revell tires are shorter and narrower.

Very cool idea... using the shorter side wall to reduce the radius of the wheel/tire combo. The wheels look great!

Mark, nothing adds more to a car than the right set of shoes, and I think you nailed it.

I finished the bodywork during the weekend and now the Barracuda is feeling a little bit grey, Light Grey Metallic from Testors that is.

DSCN0249-vi.jpg

Five coats of Testors Model Master Lacquer with two light coats of Tamiya TS-13 Clear for now. I'm contemplating adding the black side stripes found in the AMT '69 Barracuda kit, so I'll finish the clear later. The six pack hood is finished in Tamiya TS-6 Matt Black. Now on to the interior and powerplant while I wait to finish the paint.

You haven't seen it before because it is a new release from Bandit Resins. It has only been available for about two weeks and I've only had mine for a week.
