W.I.P diecast outlaw 10.5 69 camaro r/s comment let me know what you think

Recommended Posts

I'm building a diecast 1/24 scale 69 camaro outlaw 10.5 car. It was originally a M2 machines chip foose car but im not a big fan of foose, but anyway heres what ive done......i lowered the suspension, put american racing pro series wheels on it, put scale 10.5 tires on it, removed the spoiler filled the holes in the trunk lid, scratch built drag wing, shaved the door handles mirrors and windshield wipers...i still need to build the 25.5 cage scratch build a 4" to 6" cowl hood and find a nice small block chevy or pontiac motor i like to twin turbo also need to do the parachutes and chute bracket. thanks for looking and Please comment.

This is cool.....never would have thought to start with a die cast. I may have to give this a shot.....

That is looking very tuff, the scoop doesn't look too big with it all one color. Great work so far.

Looking great. I would recommend going with a lift off hood to eliminate those hinges.

How is the scale on these? Have you compared it to the Revell 1/25 scale kits? I may want to pick up one of these M2 cars if I can convert it to exposed head lights.

Thanks am and aztom i appreciate it I did remove the hinge And I think there decent for $20 it's slightly bigger then the Revell a bit longer I'd say 1/4" To 1/2" Longer N less then a 1/8" wider maybe
