Loved the old match Race Days. Christmas Tree had 5 yellows on it, instead of 3. Hubert Platt was one of my favorite match racers.

Hubert Platt! Loved his Blue machines! The Nickey Chevy was a fave on the circuit, driven by "Mr. Reflexes!" With all this trivia locked in my brain, no wonder I can't remember which coat I left my cellphone in!

John, what kit is this one? I've never seen it & would like to add it to the collection.

P.S. Looks good too! Any chance of an under bonnet/chassis pic?

This build has a Competition Resins altered wheelbase '66 Nova body sitting on a stretched AMT Rat Packer chassis ........... everything is glued down, but I'll try to get a picture taken of the car on its side so you can see the chassis

Thanks, I've got the Rat Packer in the collection. No need to worry about underside pics.

Thanks for the offer. Much appreciated.

Cheers,
Chris

Just so you can see  ......... chassis has to be lengthened and new motor mounts fabricated

Excellent fotos! Thanx. The "Rat Packer" kit should be around, but resin later year Nova may be more difficult. Maybe one of the major model companies will do one soon.
I'd like to see the old Tom Sturm "Just 4 Chevy Lovers" yellow Chevelle done sometime. Only saw one example once.
