76 Firebird Esprit
Posted by 59 Chevy Impala on Thursday, September 07, 2017 9:36 PM

Here are some pics of a MPC Firebird that I converted to an Esprit.  I made a copy of the Formula hood and re-worked it into a flat hood for the Esprit.  It is painted to resemble one that we owned back in the late 70's.  I really liked building this car and my wife really liked how it turned out.  I mixed Testors Saphire Blue and Gloss Black to come up with the color.  The wheels came from the parts box and I modified the engine to resemble the 400 Pontiac engine that was in ours.  I hope ya like it.
