1972 Chevrolet Monte Carlo MODEL


1/24 Scale Model of a 1972 Chevrolet Monte Carlo. This car started life as a 1970 SS model that I built as a custom with shaved moldings, blue metalflake paint, 3 2-Bbls on a Big Block, and Prowler wheels. I decided it was gaudy and after seeing the Monte in Tokyo Drift I decided to make a copy. Note that since then AMT released a “model” of the Tokyo Drift car which is horribly wrong (22” dubs, flat hood, small block, etc). Build: Heavily customized “NASCAR for the street”, based on Tokyo Drift car Paint: Yellow Primer and Gray Primer Interior: NASCAR Caged, racing seats, extinguisher, Nitrous, gauges, and more Wheels: Black old school “5-hole” Banjo-style NASCAR wheels with Yellow-letter Goodyear NASCAR slicks Decals: None Drivetrain: Big Block Chevy built as a 572 Hardcore, Dominator carburetor, braided hoses, 4-Speed T-10 transmission Details: Painted “splotched” to match the movie car, sidepipes, fiberglass bumpers, cowl hoodscoop Build Time: 9 Hours Build Year: 2006

I love the stance I achieved with this model. It just looks evil!

I love building the engines in models most of all, probably because I do that …

Thanks! I should build a replica of one of the GRM projects, huh?
