Post by homers customs on Tue 14 Sep 2010, 7:44 pm

1/18 scale classic carlectable HZ Monaro
Built this one a while ago now.I started out by removing the red and blue stripes that went around the bottom of the car,also added an under bonnet blown v8,lowered suspension,added some custom nuber plates and a set of 18x8 and 18x10 GMP Wheels
Hope you like Cheers homer



Thanks for looking

What size turbos are you looking for? I've been wanting to build a twin turbo car, but trying to fit all the piping will be a challenge.

UPDATE
was going to go with a 410 sprintcar engine but changed my mind again and went with this.
I used an LS1 commodore engine for a base,removed the fuel injected manifold and replaced
it with a scratch built one to accomadate 4 weber carbies. engine is unfinished still have to plumb
it and paint the manifold.
