Thought the dampers/shocks looked a little on the "clunky-side" so I redid them with a little aluminum tubing and homemade springs...a little more to scale, I think

Wow! What a wonderfully chosen subject. The simplest, purest era of racing car design ('though admittedly fantastically dangerous, too...), rendered in a finely detailed model true to the spirit of the period. More, more, more!!!!

Very Well Done Kurt. OK How'd you do the Screen over the Intakes?

Tony is one of the Hired Guns (Like David Hobbs) from back in the Hayday of Road Racing that is still with us. Had the origonal TransAm had an overall winner rather than Class only, he would have been the '66 Champ! Again, Well Done.

Ed, here's a link to the tutorial I did on making the screens for the intakes, hope it works...I've never tried to link someone to a previous posting on this site

Curt

This is a great build.... the open nature of these cars requires that you pay attention to the detail well beyond that in a fully skinned road car....

You did a great job here!!!!!!
