He will have no problem seeing his car on the carpet. The real issue is NO ONE ELSE will be able to see his car and he will wonder why everyone hits it when he get stuck on a board/flapper.

That's the one! The grill and tail lights are completely awesome. I have always been a huge fan of the Charger up to about the 1974 model. You are to be commended for your skill and imagination! Very nice work.

Beatiful paint job! I would LOVE to own a muscle car that looks like this in real life!

A black Camaro is a black Camaro and a hot rod flame job just plain works!

Not sure if I will sell this body or keep it at this point. If I keep it and race it, I'll put numbers on it and make it USVTA legal, I promise.

All the paint is Faskolor. Just their basic colors with chrome accents. Most of my time was spent on layout and cutting Fasmask as you might guess. The actual painting part didn't take long.

The body is sitting too high on my TC5 chassis because I wasn't wanting to put holes in it yet until I decide what I'm doing with the body.

I'm sure someone has already done it, but thought people might appreciate it.

Many thanks, the tamiya light blue is indeed a good fit. Cheers

edit: Did the other nose today, came out better than the 1st one yesterday







It is difficult to get good photos. These aren't as good as it really is.
