This kit caught my eye when i was at the Tigerfest show i had to have it . Im planning on detailing this one. The color im using is Dupli-Color Radiant Silver as a basecoat and the topcoat is Dupli-Color Metalcast Blue Anodized to replicate that Candy Blue that was used on all the Jungle Jim cars.

Heres the box art.

This will be interesting to follow, as a fan of GM H-Bodies I've been looking for this kit too. I can't wait to see what you do for it. B)

Rick, if I might make a suggestion, you might want to shorten the rear wheel openings and look at using the slicks from newer Monogram funny car or dragster models. Looking at lots of photos the rear wheel openings seem way too big for me. Looking forward to following this build.

More progress on Jungle Jim's Monza i'd painted the body the other day with Dupli-Color "Metalcast" Blue Anodized and Dupli-Color Ultra Silver Metallic as a base.
