California Street Vette

I found this old Monogram Tom Daniel kit on the web several years ago and while it was built and had virtually no paint, it did have a lot of glue applied in certain places and was missing parts or had the wrong parts with it. I was originally going to do a box stock restoration but since certain key parts were missing I decided to do a restomod build instead. I added a big block Chevy 396 engine from Revell's '66 Chevelle wagon, wheels and tires from Pegasus, modified seats from a Gremlin kit, modified sidepipes from Monogram's old '70 Chevelle, and some scratchbuilt and modified parts from my parts bins to complete the project. Paint color is Fiery Orange metallic by Testors and I'm very pleased with the results. This album also includes scans of the kit instructions I found on a Fotki friend's page along with a picture of a built box stock model by Randy Izzat for research and comparison purposes.
