I bought htis kit on a whim a few years ago...didn't really know what I was going to do with it, but it was only a tenner.

google rersearch brought up the well-known Biohazard 1:1 car.

I decided that all chrome should be black and it needed a roll cage. (which I made from styrene rod)

Wheels are Aoshima Watanabe's. I dropped the suspension, added plug wires, battery cables and wires from the dynamo.

The paint is rattle can (A Chrysler hue: Snakeskin Pearl Effect) and has a nice gold glitter inside the lime green.

There were two engines in the kit (I think there's a pro street version as well as the stock version) so I opted for the Hemi and the more racy looking headers and pipes.

There was a bit of filling and bodywork to do, in order to get it all straight. The chrome was actually some of the best I've encountered on a kit and in a way a shame to destroy it, but once I decide on an idea, there's no going back....

I also added heater hoses and drilled brake discs (Pegasus)

I like the sinister look of blacked-out chrome.

Here's a shot of the interior. I just used flat and semi-gloss black and some BMF on the dashboard. I added an indicator stalk made from fuse wire and opted for the kit's Hurst pistol-grip shifter.

I dunno bout you, but if I suddenly saw this grille in my rearview mirror, I'd get out of the way!

This looks mean. If this was the pro street Bee that other engine is the DOHC Hemi, the "Doomsday motor"

Cheers guys. Thanks for the nice comments.

I did consider a black hood Harry, but I decided that the flowing contours of the nose, extending out to the tops of the fenders, would look better without a split in the colour.
