Along with a couple of other 77-78 Firebirds I received this partly glued snap together MPC (or similar)1/32 kit that had the rear bumper and most of the innards missing. Needless to say the innards aren't necessary and a quick fill job of the rear and slightly wider rear arches allows it to fit quite nicely on a Scaley Camaro chassis already fitted with Scaley GT40 wheels that was floating around. I figured I better give it a bit more of a track look with a silly great shovel front end..

Hi Wobble/Bram. Great looking car. Good to see something different from all the Camaros. There are quite a few Scaly cars of this era but not sure how many have been trailed. One of our new locals is quite keen on a Dodge Challenger so would be to see that. Should get one of the others myself. I like to see a range of different cars and like a bit of a challenge. It is so easy to go with the favoured car but it does look a bit boring. Regards Chas Le Breton
