I can't wait to see pics too. :) Sounds like you're coming along nicely with the model. I'll be interested in seeing how the silver looks. I think it'll come out fine nonetheless. :)

Well, the paint job is good. The epoxy putty job I did to try and modify the front (only minor stuff) doesn't really look well. That's why I made this one KARR instead of KITT.

Hey guys!

I've finished the Niobe Firebird and the modern KARR die-cast. Here are pictures of both vehicles. Enjoy! And don't be afraid to let me know what you guys think.

Nobody has anything to say about my modern KARR model?

Good think you bumped the topic. I almost missed it. Been busy. :)

KARR looks great! More streamlined and sinister. :) I do like the old '82 T/A noses better though. But you done very well on this. Paint job turned out great! :)

Thanks, FuzzieDice. I also did a little addition to the front bumper (I added a little epoxy to the front of the nose where that front "Firebird" emblem and under the headlight section, to try to alter the appearance and give car four minature lights to go with the two regular lights). Hopefully, my learning experience with KARR with help me do a better KITT (hey, it's reasonable. After all, KARR did come before KITT in the show. Seems only fair for the prototype and the challenges met during the creation will help shape out the "production line model" as KARR put it).
