I've been planning on building this for at least 6 years, so I might as well do it.

I'd like to join in with 2 cars. Christine and also the City Chevy stocker from Days of Thunder. I did start the race car in the Nascar section HOWEVER: I did not get the right paint so it will be stripped and the chassis has not been started or engine, Nothing. My old pics are the body sitting on a different scale frame in the other section so I will be starting over. Hope it's ok

I've been out to the garage and found the Monogram XKE kits so I can get started. I'm glad I bought them a few years ago because the only ones I see on ebay are asking $45 and $60, I think I paid $15 or $20 for the two kits together.

Technically I should be starting with a convertable, but once I've made the changes it won't matter. Funny thing with the kits one says 1/25 and the other 1/24 but they are the same kit, just different issues, one is a white box with white plastic, one a black box "exotic car series" with silver plastic.

I usually start with a sprue shot, but quite a few of the parts are off the sprues so it would just be a jumble of parts. So far I've only found 1 missing piece from the suspension and it looks simple enough to make.

OMG. Too kewl! :lol:

It's one of my favorite movies, I've always wanted a 1-1 but I'll have to settle for 1/25. B)

I am going to do it as the car toward the end not the nice one:)

The actual hearse was based off a coupe. The landau bars are from a Ford Thunderbird and the taillights are from an early Porsche 911.

I need a little help . I need some good pics of a late 70's early 80's chevy 4x4 drive train. The kit I am using is only two wheel drive and I need to convert. I have several transfer cases and a lot of motors to choose from but I would like to get a combo that looks right. I am building the truck from "CHiPs" that is driven by Jon Baker.

According to IMCDB, it was a '77 GMC K-15 which would have had a GM 10-bolt front axle and NP205 transfer case.

GM 10-bolt:

NP205:
