The 'hawk is finished. Really happy with the way it went together & turned out. A fun build all the way.

 Cheers,

Chris

I agree with Buck on both counts. It's nice to see a white car too for a change. 001

Great job! The car is a knock out and the photography is top notch!

Thanks guys. The trick with the photo is a piece of black plastic with masking tape lines on it.
It passes as the road surface, and I try to line up the edge of the plastic with the concrete curb on the
other side of the road.

The illusion is spoiled in this pic by me positioning the model too far back on the "road". You can see
where the "road" ends and where the real road begins.

Cheers,

Chris

Looks good Chris, and the photo setting ads to it.

Apart from Chevrolet and Buick, did any other GM divisions build this body and where they ever kitted.

Olds had the Starfire. [url=http://www.oldcarbrochures.com/static/NA/Oldsmobile/1975 Oldsmobile/1975 Oldsmobile Starfire Folder/dirindex.html]http://www.oldcarbrochures.com/static/NA/Oldsmobile/1975%20Oldsmobile/1975%20Oldsmobile%20Starfire%20Folder/dirindex.html[/url]

I've only ever seen the Monza here in Aus, one years ago that was converted to RHD and
(cough) fitted with a dash from a toyota whitegoods celica

Cheers,

Chris

Thanks for indulging me! I like the interior color you picked out, clean and sharp from every angle!
