Here is my entry.




I was originally going to build a Revell 1969 Yenko Nova as 70's sportsman class drag car, but the rear wheel wells are to narrow for any of the tire/wheel combos I want to use.

It would require more time to build, since I would need to modify the chassis to accommodate the wider tires.

I just want something easy for this group build.

Looking forward to seeing that Bentley come to light.
Be cool if some of the older Indy roadsters were more available, or, affordable.

Here's my entry. I just hope I can make it 'til the finish. I've got  Protar/Swift model of Fangio's 54/55 RW196.  The kit is a simple curbside, though.  So I'm hoping to be able to open it up and add the mechanicals of the Monogram 300 SLR.  From what I've seen online, the mechanicals should be quite close if not identical.

Mercedes RW196:


Some of the pieces are off the trees, but it appears to be all there.








300 SLR:
















And if this doesn't pan out, I have a Tyrell P34 as a backup.  Wish me luck.

Mike

Nice one Mike if you part out the rest of the SLR, I have this kit but lost one of the pieces to the wire wheels. If you don't end up using them maybe we can work out a deal.

A nice variety of entries so far. I'll be adding a bit more with my entry.

I bought it back in 1991, assembled the engine and gearbox, painted a few parts and haven't touched it since. About time I got it finished I reckon.

Wow ... some great projects here!

I'll join in with a glue-bomb rebuild of an old MPC Camaro short track racer. I downloaded the box-shot from the web. There is a lot missing ... but the most important part (to me) is there ... those great over the top headers. I remember my cousin building this kit in the 70's and always wanted a crack at it. All the missing parts will be sourced from the parts bin with an eye towards that pre-1990 rule.

I wish Round 2 would reissue the Camaro. They reissued the GTO in that series a few years ago.

The headers are what are known as 180° headers. The scavenging of them provides better low end torque. They also have their own unique sound.

Dan, great background info on the 180 degree headers; thanks.  With all that is old being new again with Round 2 I'd love to see this series of kits reissued.  

A random place to start ... I chose to tackle the rear of the interior (which was missing).  I found the floor for a PT Cruiser to be a good basis for the part (sorry about the blurry photo ... and the part is from a modern era car).  




Next, I cut out the molded in console, filled in the various gaps with scrap plastic and trimmed it up a bit.  Some finishing work still to do but I think this part will work.

Doh,sometimes I wonder about myself. That NSX clearly said 2005 right on the box. 

Redo, this is from 1985.

I did a decal test, they appear to be good.

Famous last words though!

I have white paint and white primer, onwards and upwards. lol

Due to a few head scratching problems with my Mercedes buildup, I'm moving onto a more direct OOTB build.  It's the Tamiya 1977 Monaco GP Tyrell P34.



















I'll still be planning and working on the Mercedes and will post on that too if things work out.
