  • Mako Build cruising on this Memorial Day!!

    Boyz bought this Mako kit off eBay years ago, came in a hefty bag missing parts.

    Figured it was time to see what kind of build we could make!!

    Going to use a Scally Porsche Boxer for the donor chassis and motor that a got for $10 at a swap meet in Canton, MI this winter.

    Had to stretch the length of the chassis just a little, yet the width was perfect!!

      Boy, that looks tasty. I have been noodling on the classic blue/white fade or a different color. This looks fantastic.....I am not normally a Vette guy, but I love the Mako.

              Really like your “two-tone” version thanks for sharing!

              Boyz going to have a few beers while social distancing and come up with their version

                      Nice one, Denny. Don't you hate the way some shades of gold metallic look just like silver when photo'd? I use the Tamiya champagne gold, too, and it always looks just like yours does in pictures.

                        Way , what you are getting is the flash from the camera . To bad we can't get a daylight picture of the color , might be different

                        Great stuff. I like the champagne gold and maroon … they do sit together nicely. Gotta add that to the memory banks before I forget.

                          Finally the Holiday Weekend allowed the Boyz time to finish up the Mako and run with the other Mako in town!!

                          Decided to dull coat this version last minute.

                          Runs very, very well with it's Boxer underpinnings keeping up with the Pioneer engine/chassis on the blue version!!
