That looks GREAT! I love the color and wire wheels! :)

This is mine, using wheels and tires from Revell's '79 Z-28 and Testors Root Beer lacquer...

Those are some fine looking Monte Carlo's gujys.

I had a triple black 73. Fully loaded and had swivels and a console. I wish someone would make a trans kit so I can build that.

Sign me up for a '73 as well - it was our family's first new car since 1957:

Cool Monte Carlo. Well built and finished. This car looks good factory stock or lowrider.

My freshman year in high school was 1976 and my dad bought my mom a new Monte Carlo that year. It was I believe called Firethorn red and it had the half white vinyl top with a white interior...It was a nice car. This thread brought back memories. Great job on all the models posted.

I have a can of that downstairs. I might use that for my car.

Nice job on that.

Indeed some good looking Montes in this thread. Congratulations to You Benjamin to Your build.

Perhaps it is the fact that your location - Nice - is not far away from Monte Carlo that influenced Your work on the MC-kit so positively :)

Best regards neighbor

Hi Guys

Sorry for the dumb question but I am about to paint a Hudson Hornet interior all white and I am not sure which white to use (flat white, pure white etc.)

I use Tamiya colors.

Thanks!!!
