Kindof a spin off of the King Cobra drag cars from the day,,a  "what if car"..  can never have   enough  Torinos,,  Build on !

Thanks guys,,you guys rock also,,many great works on here.  Lookin at it now,,I should have called it   "MR-T"  instead.  I was going to do window trim,,but it looked cool without it.   One drawback of the kit is,,if you look at underside pic,,you can see the rear axle just behind the diff,,had to drill axle holes further back to fit wheel well centers,,and I cut alot of material to open the rear wells + chassis by leaf springs also.  Forgot to mention,,the carb intake stacks are Revell 1/12 scale motorcycle exsaust  tips.  And the entire  outer  perimeter of chassis went on a diet,, dremmeled  1/8th inch all the way around,,so I didnt have to fight the body  when installed,,it just "dropped" in after that.  So,,its a cool one for the shelf,,gotta do a diorama soon,,,HUmmmm,,,,?  Thanks for the views + comments ,,,,Build on!   S

I dig it, looking pretty mean.  Love the colors & striping, it all works well together.  I've built one (stock) and have another lurking in the stash with no plans, maybe I'll go your route with it, it's inspiring me a bit.  Thanks for sharing.
