Thank you :)

 

It's a nice running car too. The Weldun/Sonic gears are smooth and quiet. The car has just the right amount of traction so it slides and doesn't tilt in the turns. Fun project.

Very nicely done. I like the blue wobbly wheels. Many people would not have known about this.

I didn't either until I was researching for this car. I hoped to make this first version of the Russkit Chaparral look as different as I could from the later version I still want to build. The wheels and number placement hopefully help distinguish it from this beauty:

It will be a 1966 Rod & Custom Series version:

You keep this up and you will need more display cases.  Any chance you could post a pic?

Hi James,

 

I sold over half of my cars a while back so I have room in my display cases again. :D
