I picked this one up from a Home bargains age's ago with the intention of a Madmax build but now I want to  build it up into a flying car, at the moment rummaging through the box of bits before I decid if I going down the Ian Maquue style or something a bit more bonkers.

The bonkers bit might be to fit the Yakult bottle as a massive scram jet scoop....

So going with the organic build.... Make it up as I go along..... 😋. But I think I have the look comming together with these parts and the main thrusters are now fitted to the car. Looks to me like a back to the future remake at the moment.

 

Let me know what you think?

My twopennorth. Intakes where the headlights were. A roof hatch for access to the inside with a central driving position.

A bulkhead across the inside behind the drivers seat. Fair in the rear arches and a central thruster underneath where the rear axle was.

I like the look of it so far. Watching with interest. Pete

Just a quick update as I have fitted one intake to the bonnet and added a bit of detail to the inside of it, was also thinking of adding another jet to the underside, I thing it will tie in the look of the front and backends of the car and I can just blank of the original engine bay. 

 

Also dechromed a few parts using bleach, that seamed to have worked OK, see yellowish front grill. I'm hoping that bonnet can be glued down flat...

Well that just ballsed it up! It was that shell that was twisted so I thought I would fix it with some warm water only the water was hotter than expected resulting in a bloody mess.

 

Any one got one of theses kits for sale?

Well that's too bad, sorry to hear. It was looking very good too.

 

Any bits you can salvage?

Possibly some kind of wreck scene?

I can't imagine a Camaro is an easy thing to fly after all.

Mojo restored I started duild the under side of the car, used one of the seat backs as a mount for the front engine, added some fixing for the new anti grav wheels and side and fixed that to the inside part of the car, lot of glue to dry before I can add any filler needed. I will then add more greeblies to the underside to fill the bigger gaps.

This section has come together well I think, and it should make a good mounting point for a stand. Still need to put something in the hole of the added wheel arch parts and I will need to add similar parts to the rest of the under side.

Looking great! I love that underside. Are you planning on painting it in one piece?
