  • Bo Duke and his new '68 GTO

    A Bo and his goat, Pioneer Bo Duke figure driving, not many non-race car figures around.
    I just finished this one, Revell Snaptite '68 GTO model kit body with a MRRC Sebring chassis, Slottechnik Carrera digital chip,
    Tamiya TS paint and clear. It had hideaway headlights and drilled them out and added 3mm diode led's, opened up the parking lights and made lenses out of amber Lego hunks, parking lights were lit with the headlights in '68 so I had to. I carefully opened up the bumper tail lights and added a red lense and lit those with smd led's, threw in a nano led license plate light for good measure, milled the wheels down and made Rally wheel centers for the MRRC wheels. I had to make a litle box/console in the interior for motor clearance, full interior otherwise.

    Nice clean build. Very good work and a steady hand on the chrome to. Did you use a Molotow chrome pen?
    The parking lights and license plate light are a nice touch.

      Thanks for the compliments. The chrome is Bare-Metal foil including the rear bumper. The wheel opening moldings took me at least twenty tries, the last one went easy, should of done it first.
      I was looking at Spazstix and Molotow chrome pen for the bumper, may try it the next time, foil is a pain to get right on those compound curves.. This is the first model I've built in nearly twenty years, first real slot car ever, I have to catch up with those newfangled chrome finishes.

    Very nice build. This has always been one on my favorite muscle cars. Pontiac builds excitement! LOL
    The rear plate marker light is a really nice touch.

          That is one of the nicest model conversions I have seen in quite a while. Love the lighting effects on that nice clean build.

          Now go jump a sheriff's car!

                  I have to add another WOW to this one
                  Exellent build with enough attention to detail that it looks like a factory production slot car

                        Thanks and yep, those are Ohio plates. The car is in Ohio, it was transported from the southwest or it would be a rust colored stain on the ground by now.
