I've been working on this one for ages, reckon I'll finish it soon, it's sitting on a stretched Scalextric Camaro chassis, Slot-it gears and PSR wheels, tyres and motor. Regards Jason

Cheer's guys, thanks for the interest. Trevor, the car is built from an old Gunze Sangyo kit, they did quite a few blingy yank tanks. Kindest Regards Jason

Cheer's guys thanks for the interest, thanks for the pictures Dave, your chassis looks great, and fast, I don't think mine will be too fast. I'm not much of a chassis builder and it's this aspect which has slowed this project to the crawl it's been. I wanted to keep all of the interior, so I could either go front motor or sidewinder mounted behind the rear wheels, I remember Britfix gave it this treatment. After much thinking, chopping, sticking, chopping, thinking...I gave up and stretched the Camaro chassis, I'm going to loose a bit of the back seats, I'll make a disguise. I'll post some more pictures when I make progress. Kindest Regards Jason

This is good, I like it and I like big. How long is it? My biggest is a Mercury Monterey Palmer kit, 179mm or 7", depending what side of the ruler is used.

A very nice build Jason and I love the figures, I am looking forward to seeing it finished.#

I have almost all the Gunze Sangyo kits in my "pending" pile but so far have only built the Nomad and the Thunderbird.

Hi Wobble, it's approx 180mm bumper to bumper, or 7" in old money, if I was to fit the chrome spare wheel carrier, I dunno, but for sure even bigger. David, it was picture's of your beautifully built Nomad that had me looking at these kits in the first place, I'd never heard of Gunze Sangyo before then, thanks, and thanks for the very kind compliment. Kindest Regards Jason

Cheer's Pace, I'm no expert, but yes, I'd say that was a Cadilac, looks like an Eldorado, thanks for the picture and kind compliment. Regards Jason

Made some progress today, sanded down the kit wheels to make inserts, started thinking in earnest about how I'm going to cover the hole in the rear seats. Some picture's to show thought and wheels.

Cheer's Rick, thanks for the picture of your lovely Caddy, and many, many thanks for the link to your build blogs, full of gems, the transformation of the MK2 Jag is phenomenal, your builds are inspiring.

Great build and fantastic characters. Have the Boss and Uncle Jesse got in cahoots?!?

Presumably you have some horns from an 'ornery steer to finish up the front end?

Love these sort of projects 😎

Cheer's Richard, thanks for the kind compliment, I have been thinking about the horns, I made one set but they was too modest, I hope this set may end up looking a bit better. Regards Jason

Finished the horns, fitted a deeper guide and wired the motor, sorted the body mounts, all fits together nice. Probably change the back seat disguise to crates with bottles at a later date. Fairly pleased with the end result, thanks for the interest and kind comments. Kindest Regards Jason
