|GONZO'S PRO BUILT 1968 FIREBIRD 400
RAM AIR "MAYFAIR MAIZE" 1/25TH SCALE
|Here I have built a Revell 1/25th scale
1968 Pontiac Firebird 400. It features
the Pontiac 400ci. engine with ram
air, or forced air induction. The car
has a 4spd transmission. This was a
very potent combination, basically the
high output GTO engine with ram air,
but in a much smaller car.
I airbushed the factory color Mayfair
Maize. It was clearcoated and rubbed
to a mirror finish. Everything was
Bare Metal foiled where needed, and
detailed from reference. I added 1968
Minnesota license plates.
The interior was completely detailed,
and the woodgrained console was
hand painted. The engine bay was
detailed and painted the correct
Pontiac blue for that year. It was
wired with Arrowhead Aluminum
distributor and wires, then plumbed.
Note the GM logo on the radiator
hose, battery markings, and the
caution sticker on the fan shroud.
The chassis was finished and done to
show the factory overspray. It has the
factory mags, and Goodyear redlines.
