Well, I myself am pretty "into" plastic models as well as Hotwheels (I have 2000+ in the package).
As far as a body kit, there could be many approaches. You could create the kit out of styrene. You could use body filler and sculpt it the way you want. You could create molds and cast your own parts. There are pretty much limitless ways to attack this. I guess I want to know what materials you are looking to use.

Here is a link to a post on this forum about model cars.

nasTone - you still on here? I guess so since you posted - LOL

How did that Mustang come out that you were working on? It has been sooooooooooo long since I even touched styrene - I may go into shock if I pick one up LOL

Melon - As mentioned there are soooooo many ways to accomplish this - you can carve a design into a small piece of wood and vaccu-form some styrene over it to make the actual part in one piece. That is just one idea - let you imagination run wild and build it man - I would like to see what you come up with. I'll be keeping an eye on this thread . . .
