(I Love It When A Plan Comes Together) Hannibal Smith.
Love that color, great paint job
Thanks Guys - it's a tamiya spray - Bright Red I think they call it - I can check the TS- # tonight if you want
On the bench MPC Maverick Gasser Street Machine Warhorse and Revell 'cuda 1971
Small update. Checked the colour - Tamiya TS-49 Bright red - Yes it is bright!
Gave it a light polish up with some Meguirs Tech Wax that I use on my real car - came up a treat.
Also masked up and did the black painting on the bonnet.
Over the weekend I ordered a heap of different detailing bits, wired distributors, braided lines, fittings - but me bieing in Oz they will take a minimum 2 weeks to get to me assuming seller posts promptly. Scary fact: In the past month I have bought 7 kits, lots of detailing bits and spray paints, and a Scale Auto subscription - I'm up over $500 !! Scary cost getting back into the hobby - and I already had an impressive paint/brush/tool collection!
I don't like being held back so last night, rather than wait for my wired distributors to arrive, I cut the wired distributor off a PTX 302 engine model - wired that up to the Cobra Jet motor.
Also scratch built a coil from sprue and did some vacuum tubing from thing in front of distributor to carby.
I should really research my parts names and hose/cable layouts.
Thats called the vacuum advance for the points.The body still looks fantastic and can hardly wait for more pictures................................
G'day Rik and goodonya. Looks to me as if this will be as nice as the '70 Boss. Cheers
Just saw this exact same model at the Ben Franklin store downtown today. Price for it was a little high at 20 bucks.
There was even a 1970s Trans Am car the same one from the Smokey and the Bandit movies.
Wish I could win the lottery so I can buy the good models like a freakin 1970s Trans Am and even a freakin Hemi Cuda car model
Kits retail here in Australia anywhere from $35 to $50
So I'm getting mine from the US off ebay
OK - progressed a bit further last night - lots of pics here
My internet connection is crap - struggling to link any more but you can see them in the album link above
Very nice detail. very nice progress..Slusher
