The Pontiac Banshee was a styling study for a future Firebird. Ironically it didn`t been reality only a few styling elements can be seen on the 1993 Firebird .

The model was built from a Revell kit. The use of some putty was necessary at the rear panel and in the interior at the complicate formed dashbord area at poor fits and gaps. Headlights and wiring/ plumbing on engine are added all are nearly invisible. What a waste of time, energy and material could say one but we know it`s a great joy to make !

Nice build of an interesting concept car. Great job opening the doors.

I got to see this car at the 86 World's Fair in Vancouver. Sure got the blood flowing in my 17 year old heart at the time. I had this kit back in 89. I started it but never finished it. Not sure what ever happened to that kit. I do remember the poor fit of the dash.

You made it look great.

Later-

It's a good build, helluva job. this car was supposed to be used for the Knight Rider 2000 movie, but there was an issue and Pontiac pulled their support, so KR crew built their own knock off (the hideous one based on a Toyota MR-2). i believe this car also appeared in Back to the Future 2 (background future car).

That was actually a heavily modified Dodge Stealth- didn't know it was also in Back to the Future 2.

Really nice job on this kit! Love the opening doors and the overall 'cleanliness' of the build.

Bringing this thread back from the dead.  I found the Banshee in my stash today and was thinking of building it - your work on this old kit is impressive.  (Yes, I know this was nearly a decade ago!)
