hello to all friends of cut, file and of course fill and sand plastic models :D ...

today i start a new project it will be a 72 gto in guybrushs custom rat rod style with some new bodywork (i have no idea how the way goes i just build)

for the base i pick out the 72gto from mpc (its a horrible model bad quality and less details)

so i decide to make some unique out of it...

at first i cut the roof (make a el camino i love those cars) and the frontmask then i add some sheet

i change the hood with one of a 70 challenger and the grille comes from a 69 charger

Very organic - looks like it belongs together. From the side, the front fenders and hood dominate; the rear fender line seems low in comparison. Maybe its just the high rears of almost all current cars. Very good start.

i cut out the molded on front axle unit and replaced it with someoneone i found in my parts box (i think its from a 69 gto)

i also used another rear axle ...

then i build a engine out of everything i found in my parts box (because the orginal kit engine is a horrible mold)
