    Volare model

    I picked this up for only $25 at a toy and model show this weekend. I'm going to turn it into a dag car. Might even get a Hemi.

    Coming along very nicely. I see you went with a small block instead of a Hemi.

    All the HEMI engines were to big. I just didn't feel like cutting out the driveshaft or modifying it in another way. I'll have plenty of detail in this one. I did take a leap and cut out the trunk to put nitrous and the battery.

    Looking good. I've been looking at the 1980 "Fuzz Duster" model on ebay since mine is an '80. Anybody know if it's a good model kit or not?

    Yes, they are a good kit. They come with window louvers, rear spoilers (1 & 3 piece style) and two sets of wheels/tires. The interior panels are well detailed too. I guess the only negative thing about the kit is the exhaust manifolds. The drivers side looks funny. Here is the '80 I put together. For this one I used two passenger side manifolds on the engine.

    One thing I forgot to note is the louvers are the vertical style. These horizontal ones I hand made.
