  1. Thanks! The chassis is from the MPC Rat Trap Vega
  2. This one has been on the shelf for several years,. I started considering a build out on the Shelby Cobra 427 S?C chassis, but that didn't pan out. Since I had it on the bench i decided to proceed out of the box. I've done a few mods .. the fram was lowered 2mm, and the body has been lowered on the frame by 4mm. That required removing 4mm from the interior tub height. All parts being used are straight from the kit except maybe the tires?
  3. Very nice! I am considering a 32 ford 3 window coupe hot rod mounted on the Monogram cobra 427 chassis
  4. Thanks for you compliments! Both are street bodies grafted onto nascar chassis.
  5. rmurry ... post some pics. I would like to see what you've done.
  6. Thanks! I used a Tamiya black line accent color wash on them to darken the chrome and fill the lines in the spokes.
  7. Thanks for all of your kind comments. This one was a fun build. The fit and finish was good on the kit. It is box stock other that being lowered a bit, some mid engine mods (carburetor, air cleaner and valve covers), and wheels/tires/brake rotors and calipers that think came from a Revell 67 Chevelle Street Burner kit.
  8. Thanks Geno. The wheels and tires are from the Revell 67 Chevelle Street Burner kit.
  9. This one is getting close. Still have chrome trim to add and a bit of work on the engine bay.
  10. color added - Titanium Silver/White. Went more toward Bel Air scheme rather than the Del Ray
  11. The further I go with this one, the more pleased I am with the overall quality and fit of the kit.
  12. Thanks for all of the great comments and information. For this one i'm not really going for historical accuracy. I just wanted to add my own touches to a nice 56 Chevy.
  13. Benn wanting to get going on this one for a while. My Dad had a 56 Bel Air. I was just a wee lad and dont have any memories of it, but I do have some old B&W photo's.
  14. ready for finishing touches. time for a few scratches, tire marks, etc.
  15. Thanks all for your comments and feedback. Thus one has been fun. I didnt expect it to become a prototype. I’ve decided to add a 69 nova sportsman to my project list. Maybe a Butch Lindley replica. Watched him race many times at Huntsville Speedway, back in the day when allison, bonnet, waltrip, gant, ridley, farmer and many others would come to town and battle on our little 1/4 mile bull ring.
  16. final stages of construction. This one should be race ready by next weekend.
  17. Testors flat red enamel, buffed with a soft cloth after it dried.
  18. I've been working on the rear of the chassis and trying to figure out how to add suspension parts. here's where it is today. Sorry for the photo quality.
  19. The wheels in the last image are from an AMT nascar kit from several years ago, and the tires were some I dug out of my parts boxes. They were likely from an old dirt modified stock car kit from MANY years ago. I haven't decided on what will be on the completed kit. Depends on whether it turns out as a pavement or dirt car.
