Love it! My first car was a gold 81 firebird. No ttops, v6 we swapped in a Chevy 305. It was a slug but got great mileage.

The firebird body looks really SWEEEEEEEET on the DS.

But just realized DaveM just said that....hmmmmm

Looks great! haha, seriously...i like it. The decals have good detail as well.

It doesnt appear to be an HPI body, may i ask who makes it?

Nice job on the Trans Am body! It really looks nice with the gold mesh wheels! 8)

That looks fantastic. I like how the rear tires properly fill the wheel-wells, unlike so many onroad chassis' these days, where the rears are sucked in way too much...it just doesn't look right for a muscle-car if the rear tires are sucked in too much. Did you have to do anything to push out the tires to look right?

There's nothing like the feeling you get when you first peel off the paint mask film and reveal your paint, eh? 8)
