Those Novas made some sharp looking asphalt cars! Looks great so far, you got the stance perfect.

looking good

you just dont see enough of these models anymore

if i may offer a suggestion, you know the tape you use to join 2 sheets of drywall before you plaster them ?

that makes way better safetynet then that plastic ones provided in the kit

Love builds like this. I was just curious as to what you did to fit the body to the chassis. It looks like you shortened up the front of the chassis, but was that all you needed to do?
