While waiting on the paint to dry on the tow rig, I decided to start on the race car.

Moebius is going to be releasing the 65 Comet Cyclone this month. I have had 3 of those kits on pre order for 2 years. I was going to use one to build a 427 Comet but I found out that they are going to release a second version of the kit with the 427 conversion already kitted up so I am going to wait for that release to build the 427 AFX car.

Until then I want to have another of my "wish I had one of those" race cars the 66 427 Ford Fairlane.

I am saving my real 427 AMT kit for another build and am using the GT kit with parts from the Revell 64 Thunderbolt to soup it up.

I am using parts box wheels and tires, here is the stance I am going for and I have started on the chassis mods so that the slicks will fit. Cutting the wheel wells and moving the frame rails in. Cutting out the stock gas tank and putting in a filler panel for the fuel cell in the trunk. I am going to graft the tear drop scoop to the kit hood.

Some fine work! My luv for the tear drop hood bubble has faded over the years. It's "period correct" for the times. Engine block looks great, where's it from? The 2 engine halves, also pictured, look OK. I like the deep sump oil pan, but molding pan as part of engine half makes for extra work to blend out the middle seam.
Best to you in completing this one. We'll be watching!

Grey block and pan are from the kit, the white parts are from the Revell 64 Thunderbolt

Very clean, sanitary! A lotta work for an area most would ignore. Thanx for taking the time, what you've done ain't easy!

I was thinking the now defunct KCIR. It was less than five miles from my house.
