Wraith. A jet powered 55 chevy pro street

I had an idea to build a Halloween car. My idea was to make a car that the booger man might drive. I started with the Revell 55 chevy pro street and a old star wars pod racer. I cut and hacked together two of the pods jets to make one jet that was the lenght of the car. Then i tubbed out the tubs to make room for the jet. Had to cut out the trunk and transmission tunnel. I am going to flat black every thing and do a full monty carbon wrap on the outside. I may put red leds in the jet to give it that spooky look. May also put red leds in the headlights.

So. What do you think a good name for this should be?

Got the simi gloss on the body in prep for the carbon fiber.

Painted the jet with stainless metalizer. Washed it with black and hit the tubes with some gold leaf. All that was toned down with some titanium metalizer. Got a few more tubes and dodads to add on.

Carbon detail looks great. Looks like it was super tedious. Looking forward to more.

I just could not leave the kit decals off the model. I love decals. They are my favorite part of doing a model. It does take away from the theam a bit though.

Not much room for any interior items. I have to cut the seat down to get it in there. The roll cage of this kit was a challenge. Especially since i cut many of the locators off making room for the jet.
