Screaming Goat!

Revell 1/24 Pontiac '69 GTO, built OOB.
I used Testor's rattle can enamel for the exterior, and Tamiya acrylics for the rest.
A fun kit of something different, and my first of 2015.
A lot of mistakes, but it was fun to use Bare Metal Foil for something other than canopy masking.
Hope you like it.

Hi, James,

 

You just triggered a bunch of memories of the 1968 GTO convertible that I bought new for $4,150. It was Solar Red! With a red interior, too. MPC had an annual kit of that car that has never been reissued since.

 

I sold it in 1976 when the oldest kid became 16 and wanted to drive it. The last I heard of it was that the buyer dropped a u-joint on the drive shaft while attempting a 130 mph run on a long, lonely country road. Thank goodness it was the back one.

 

The kid got even with me, though. He totalled my 1974 Grand Am while on a date. I paid $4,800 for it; got $2,300 in insurance, and sold the as-is carcass for $1,250. My depreciation over three years was just $1,250.

Hi Ed, Thanks!

 

This build seems to have triggered memories for a lot of people. I've never driven one, but it's on my list of cars I wish I could have now!!

Nice build James! I just recently found out about adding a coat of Tamiya "Smoke" color to the wheels and it brings them out nicely and gives a more realistic look. I have the article if you want to read it. Lemme know.
