COOL, i've seen this kit reduced to bugger all, still never bothered, but this makes them look appealing, well built silverfox.

...Very sweet Falcon!!

If you used a Nascar Chassis, does that mean you still have to kit chassis left over?? only ask because I'm looking for one to use under a stock Falcon body (resin).

Nice job. Pinking shears masking tape is a cracking idea.

You guys are right about this kit. Body is only part worth buying the kit for. No good for road car as guards opened out and you really need better tires, can use rims. Old AMT nascar kits are cheap to buy and make good chassis to fit under dirt car bodies. By the way did you see my new driver name - ( 'skid' Marx ).

Just realized...this must be a new season car. They don't look this good once the racing starts. This is just a superb build of a eeccchh kit. Well done.

tis a shame AMT butchered the molds for the Falcon to make that hideous thing. But there are a few resin bodies available for the street version. i've got both a two door (ebay) and a four door (partsbox) cars to build.

Very nice build you have there, now if they would just reverse engineer this kit so we can build a stock 2 door out of it.
