Slot kit 1/25 AMT with brass frame H & R with a 40 000 trs engine.


Body, I changed the wheel arches with a dremel and I distorted by one, by one, the body with the failure of a soldering iron.

On the body, I then traced and drilled on each side, 4x 1 mm diameter holes, to hold the frame with 4 small nails


The interior of the car was made with parts of models in unused plastics kit.

I built aluminum rims and mount inserts another kit.

Body paint, I filed a sailing primer and painted the body and the inserts with dark red color, I then masked and painted white on the flag to complete a re-masking + blue paint on the rest.

I then sanded locally, paint and decals to finish with a rust effect paint.

The bumper was partially chrome and apparent plastic was painted aluminum gray

Nice work, as many of us had some exposure to Saturday night races. I like the interior that you assembled and will have to try to duplicate.

Regis, very nice weathering job on the body. It looks like something that had sat outside for twenty years. :)  With a motor change to H&R's 18,000 RPM Hawk, that car would be legal at the local club track I sometimes race at. I'll have to seek one of those '57 Chevy bodies for my own use.
