    My kit build

    Late as usual, I'm very behind with these, due to er erm, just life & stuff like finishing my garage so I got somewhere to paint them.

    This is my MPC sedan. Very rough mock up pics.
    I removed all the side trim ect. Either gonna replace it with 150 trim or leave it off altogether. Will use the BBC & seats ect from the 'Vette I got off 30psi (ta mate)
    What do you think of the stance ? Rear wheels will be moved in, not Carlos Fan Dangoes style





    Hopefully can get on with paint & stuff at the weekend (if its warm enough) & post more pics on monday

    And this is a Revell Deals Wheels. Just for a laugh (its only got 20 odd parts)



    The doors open, but the ride it aint free.

    I did think about no trim & no paint, 2 lane style.
    I've got a few more of these, so still got a few other builds planned.

    Post up ya pics sjb

    shave the trim but drill out the panels as though it's just had the trim pulled for racing.?

    I like it as a hi-rider, tought street racer look, radiused arches, ladder bars, pro stock scoop ? gasser's a little cliche at the momment .

    The look I was going for was kinda, street car turning into race car. You know modded as it went along look.
    All my other 57 builds have been lowered, so thought this 1 would be a bit different.
    Thought about doing it as a 'Peppershaker' ala AMT kit, but thought it too obvious for me, so thought a little bit different. You'll see what I mean when I (hopefully) finish it.

    Looking good, just got to fit the rear wheels and axle on my 32 Pick up and do a couple of small details.
    I have a Ford Victoria that i was going to build for the STOCK CLASS, but im not going to have time now, so im going to build it after the comp as a gasser, i'm going to build it a long side my other 2 projects, a tubbed 53 Chevy panel and a Scrap Yard (not sure on the size of this yet, but will be posting photo's of all the builds, also will be posting my way of "RUSTING").

    Not going well. Saturday afternoon I sprayed the little Deals Wheels 57.
    Checked it last night Paints flat as **** & the grey primers grinning through the yellow topcoat
    It must have been too cold & should have used white primer
    Will have to wait till this weekend before I can hopefully sort it.
    The MPC gasser may stay in primer (looks ok to me) as I doupt if I will get time for it.

    Why didnt we do this comp in the summer ???
