After a little trimming on the inside of the Romulan Body the Hornet Body/Engines fit perfectly.

ENGINES-TOP SIDE!

I only need part of the rear section from the top side of the Tomcat so I cut the front off and then removed the Rear Wings.

I fit the top half of the Romulan Body to the top half of the Tomcat Body/Engines and Marked the area where they met.

I cut the area out along the lines. This is just a rough cut, I will be fitting and cutting later, for the Best Fit!

What i dont understand is how do you get so many awesome builds completed in a year. I cant find time to build a box stock car in the time you build one show stopper.

Keep it up. I enjoy your builds.

GOT THE NOSE!

I cut the top half of the Tomcats Nose off with a razor saw...

I fit the Nose in place and sanded down the area to make the body pieces blend together.

FASTBACK!!!

I cut the Trailer from the Cherry Bomb Kit up to make an extension on the Stingrays Roof. The Front/Bottom section will be used on the Roof.

DSCN2246X_zpsac61d6c9.jpg

I taped the Trailer Section in place and the Roof and Trailer Section Fit Together Perfectly! I made a few marks where I can trim the Section down a little...

DSCN2264X_zpsef15c45c.jpg

Here's the mock-up for the Fastback!
