I built some big scale kits, but never had the patience to super detail them, going almost ever with box stock builds.

The last one I built was my favorite large scale, the Monogram 1957 Chevy Bel Air.

It's box stock, but the stainless steel exhaust tips.

I`ve built dozens of 1/12 Corvettes and Camaros. You can search for threads that I started and see a handful of them. Also have some 1/8 scale stuff on here too.

That is a great model. I would love to see someone do one of these as a Replica Stock '67 or '68.

Awesome, just awesome :o

I wished I knew then what I know now.

Came back to USA from FRG 1975.........on way home from airport, spied a set of wheels on a car lot.

Went back to that car lot, dickered with the owner......0le Cav man himself, drove those wheels off the lot after handing him $2700.00 hard saved.

What was that ride..........a 1 owner 1969 Factory Z28..........one bad mamma jamma. White body, black strips, black interior.

Engine was factory hotrod, 4 speed trans..........would pick front wheels off of the ground a good inch popping the clutch............like I said, this was a Factory built hotrod ready for the strip. Had to add traction bars to keep rear wheels on the ground. I would go on to add a few more goodies, a Elderbrook Highrise w/twin 650's, a Cam, solid lifters, Headman Headers, Accel Coil, 411 rear, Fenton wheels w/Mickey Thompson Tires and did change the hood for a hood w/scoop to flow air to those 2 high octane burning carbs. I sold that car back then to a fella who would campaign successfully @ several strips around GA. So yea, these bring back some good memories. :lol:

Forgive my spelling if I did not spell the names right, you get the idea.

Old school Hot Rodder.
