got the cutting done, it was a pain, this kit isnt the biggest so it was a little tricky cutting everything so it would fit. not real happy with the gap between the hood and front car support, but i
m not exactly what i can do with it at the moment. i tried filing down the edges where it meets up with the car, didnt really do much, i'll figure something out eventually.
right now its just mocked up, i wont be able to acutally make the mounting bracket until after i put the rear trunk / spare tire in. and i cant do that until i put the window in. so im at a stand still on mounting it at the moement.

I feel your pain Zippo. At least you have a an engine bay. Mine is just the body every thing is in the model chassis...

Mounting is/was a pain! The chassis was to long, to short, so i had to drill medium holes in the chassis extender...

Mounts are made just not glued to the body yet. I haven't had much time lately.

Finally got the stance how i want it. Not much space to do an interior or anything for an engine...











I will be gone for the next 3 days.

thanks.

Update #2
7/30/09













Body is now mounted. the rest of the chassis has been painted. Now i can move on to something else. As you can see there is little to no room to an interior.

thanks

3rd gen Viper gone 4th gen ACR.

I started the passenger rear arch first just to see how it looked. That is why that side is farther along than the others.

I love the stance













thanks

no one has any comments about these cars? nothing at all?

well 3 sheets of paper and covered in dust later. i need to add a little more putty to a few spots, and i seem to have lost the piece that was on the passenger side by the bumper, i dunno, your guess is as good as mine where it went. it was on there. its starting to shape up nicely. going to take a short break then add the putty, and sand again tomorrow. yay!! and start painting sunday
