    Picked up this Fury wagon from Motor City Resin. I'm planing on making it into a factory stock Fury III. Still trying to decide on a color to paint it. I'm also looking for pictures of nice stock Fury wagons to help in my build. Im going to use a 383 for the engine. Here's what I'm starting with and will and will be posting WIP pictures as it comes along. Your comments and recommendations are appreachated.

    This is a Motor City Resin kit and a Gibson 383 resin engine that I'm starting with. This is going to be a factory stock build with Mist Blue Ploy DD- 1 and a blue interior. I'm going to add the correct side trim on the body because the body is cast for a Surburban model level and also change out the tail lights. The front and rear bumpers are from a JoHan police car kit I that have parts from. The resin bumpers that come with the kit are not chrome. I plan to add some more detail to the interior like the door arm rests and the back section needs some work to look like A 1:1. Already soaked all the resin parts in bleche white and washed so they are ready. The paint is on order from Paint-Scratch and the new rear tail lights and hub caps are coming from Modelhaus. Here's a what I'm starting with.

    I plan to get some progress over the weekend and I will be posting. I'm going to work on adding the side trim molding. Will also be cleaning up the body for paint and will start building the engine.

    The front bumper / grill is not fitting up the way I would like it to and I have a police car parts body I'm going to cut and replace the resin front with the police cars front. I've cut the police car fenders off getting ready to cut the wagon fenders off. I have also started adding some detail to the seats to make them like the ones that came in the custom Surburban. After I sprayed the primer I have more work to do to the seats to clean them up.

    When doing a front clip swap like that, do you add some tabs on the backside for strength?

    Yes I added some strips on each side for strength and to help line it up.

    Worked on the back section of the interior added the spare tire hump and smoothed the floor. Also added door arm rests but need to move the back door arm rests back some. I'm also going to use the AMT 68 road runner rear axle, exhaust and front A frame so next I will be grinding out the molded ones out of the chassis.
