"otherhalf" is working all the holiday nights at the hospital, so decided to get one more build in before 2018.

Starting out with a Revell 1/32 Snap-Together, and of course chassis and power by Pioneer!!!

Going to be a driver, put could spend the weekends at the track.

Nice Denny. I have thought of picking one of these up when I see them for sale. Looking forward to the build as usual.

nice start, should be a good looking hot rod, these are very nice kits, surprised not more people haven't chose to build them. Real nice mold, kinda thin plastic, but the overall dimensions and finished unit make for a cool car. Great for making a nid 80s late model short tracker too.

After Santa left the Boyz had the opportunity to add some Tamiya Light Metallic Blue to the "Z".

KY you are right, not a lot of mold lines to sand, everything pretty straight forward.

Fits nice with a slight shortening of the Pioneer chassis.

Boyz picked this year Camaro because they haven't seen any they can remember on the site!

Will had a second color theme of Deep Metallic Blue next to make it hopefully really pop.

Yes excellent model and I am sure the Boyz will do it justice.

Boyz got the second color Tamiya Deep Metallic added to the "Z" .

Need to get the body level on the chassis and a number of cosmetic issues and should have it running before New Years !!

Boyz ended up building a "Z" that can go to the track or be on the track in the end.

The Pioneer power makes this so fun to drive at high speeds!!

The Boyz first run the wheels off their latest creation, then take pictures.

Not a good sequence as you can see from the nicks and brushes with the guard rails at Dundee Speedway!!

As fast as any of the Camaro's, Mustangs, or Mopars at the Speedway.
