Pontiac Firebird

This is a Monogram kit I picked up that was only missing the interior tray and a few other unnecessary bits. Surprisingly it is a bit bigger than A Scaley Camaro which meant the wheelbase is longer than both that and the Pioneer Camaro chassis. A modified Scaley Impala Nascar chassis wheelbase is spot on and Escort front wheels and Camaro rear end fitted without needing to widen the arches. The wheels are a bit on the small side but are what I had.

Nice, pretty sure that is what the RM resin version started life as.

I remember seeing the 1/1 car and being blown away by all the vents and scoops and exhausts....didnt the exhausts exit from the under the side of the rear fender? two each side?

Very nice start...

 

I wonder how it compare to the Carrera offer for scale...

No idea about the Carrera model (munter, note the exhausts in s_r's photo) but this is how it stacks up against the Scaley '70 Camaro.

I also have a Monogram and a MPC snap of the '77-78 (same shape as Carrera) and they're both good to go on a Pioneer chassis.
