I'm finally removing this from my stalled list ................ after nearly ten years ............... four trips to the "purple pond" and five total paint jobs ............... I'm calling this one as complete as I can

I will say that I'm disappointed in this body ................. it's from Competition Resins and while the casting is clean, the proportions don't match any chassis that I can find ........... Roger is usually very good at notifying us that the chassis we need to use needs to be modified to accept the body, however that was not the case with this body ............... the dimensions are too short to accept the specified late model Revell chassis .............. had I known ahead of time I might have tried to correct the situation .............. as it was, I didn't realize the fit was off until I attempted to attach the completed body to the completed chassis ..................... enough of that, I have used CR bodies many times in the past and will continue to do so in the future

It's a Comp Resins Firebird body and a Revell chassis ............ Comp Resins also provided the wheels and the Crower injector and scoop ................ the rear fins and spoiler were scratch built ...... Testors enamels and old, old Slixx decals that kept breaking in spite of the use of bonder

Enough blabber........... here's the car

Looking at the body it may have been a better fit using an old mpc chassis out of a kit like the Brute Force or something similar. The Revell chassis is just a bit too much for the older type built F/C's....
