What can I say, It Used to Bee.............................Was wanting to do another Weathered build and this started as one of my old builds, disassembled it and started playing. Had lots of mental reference. (My Toy is around the same stage and my buddies '63 Pontiac is nearly done). Anyway a case of been there done that.

Nice work. The two builds go well together. I also like the tow straps on the trailer.

Thanks Guys.

Was a joy to build something I don't have to worry about the finish of the paint on. And like I said been there done it, more than once.

That's what I love most about doing worn old cars. Someday someone will take this and fix it up! :lol: Really good job on this. :)

It is a bit of stress relief isn't it?

That is totally awesome! Very realistic. You know what you should do? Build 2 or 3 more in different stages of restoration, and have a display of "junker to show car".

Yes, that's why I always end up returning to military modeling.

A really nice idea and well put together. I like the extended front suspension on this engineless Super Bee, so typical of incomplete 'easy projects' often posted on ebay!

Thanks Guys, I really like the way this turned out.

Yes It is a lot of relief to do something not shiny from time to time.

Tommy, I like that Idea, I have another one of these kits and bunch of Coronet parts, Might have to build that one as after.

Simon, I know a think or two about that too:

This was fun to look at, so i hope you had a good time building it. i like how you popped up the suspension to look like the motor's weight is gone. the welded panel is a nice touch too.
