Bandit's Trans Am

Postby Morris » Sat Sep 22, 2018 12:33 pm

Thought I would take a break from Lulubell - With Burt Reynolds recently passing away, thought I'd build a kit from the stash - stated today on a Monogram one -

will add more to the 6.6 ltr Pontiac engine as I get into the engine bay...

Painted the wheels gold inserts, the tyre lettering etc.

Yeah, I watched it also on MFM - it's almost frame by frame the same as the Humphrey Bogart one ... both good. Struggling still with Lulubell's dust - still working that but took a break after watching the Bandit movie and digging through the 1980's stash :D :D
