My latest completion, just finished the jewelry tonight. AMT kit, bone stock. I did go for the hopped-up motor option, dual carbs and dual exhaust.

This is the kind of build that got me into modeling as kid. Factory stock with plain Jane colors. It has a sentimental warmth like Americana. I love every bit of this Bruce. Split manifold, the sleeper of the day. And that stance is dead on, is that kit quality or did you adjust? Thanks for sharing.

It's all the kit. The body slid on like a glove, no teeth-gritting spreading to get the chassis in. Stance is unaltered. I really like the factory stock look and build most of them that way.

Great build. I too like a factory stock look - but slight mods a budget minded DIY owner might have done in the day. I also like the mundane color choice - what color is it?

Very Nice, I like the concept of stock apperance with a bit of extra kick under the hood B)

It's Rustoleum 'Painters Touch' gloss Sage Green. I don't have an airbrush so I'm always prowling the hardware stores for off-beat spray bombs.

Thanks to everyone for all the nice comments. I enjoyed this build, the kit went together very well for me.
