Yes, those will be cool.

Are any of those currently being produced?

the  LS   2C   kits  can be found on  e-bay and   Chaparral   2A  can be  purchased  at  Modelbuilderswh. com   and is a HRM  kit.   the   Fein  Design Modell   (slotcar body kits)  are  close to impossible  to find  even on e-bay.   only  about 200  kits are made of each  body made.   waited  about 5  years  to finallly  get  the wide rear  fender  Chaparral  2G  from Fein Design Modell.

Wow, okay - watching with interest. I saw the 2 and the 2E race.

Looks like you're doing the late style 2 with the 2C style wing?  I have a few Chaparral builds planned here myself. I have the LS kit, the HRM kit, and and old Cox slot car body.

so the first one  will be an early   2A  and with  Starfighter decals  the plan is to make the Gold  Star  #6 Chaparral.  starting  with a cox  re-pop  slot car body  i  cut off front  at body lines  and  used front from  an LS  brand  2C  .   shaved off  front fins and   filled in headlights  slightly  for smaller headlights.  will be using  chassis from mini exotics kit for  a better interior and an engine.

Oh, my.  Count me in as one of the many all-time Chaparral fans!  

Going to enjoy this!  There can never be enough Chappies built . . . and when they are well detailed! . . . Oh, my!

What brand is the grey body, the 2A with the 2C style rear wing?
