1/6 scale KITT on the horizon-opinions needed

Post by corlando52 » Sat Sep 12, 2009 1:24 am

Hey, everyone. A friend of mine is involved in making a 1/6 scale model of KITT. It is in the prototype stage right now and has some things that need fixing, but he wants to see if there is any interest. He describes it best in his YouTube video. So, take a look and let me know what you think. The more interest, the better.

I think it's awesome. If it were to go out on the Market i would definatly but one. It looks great, and it is very detailed, it is like 98% exactly like the original KITT. :spm:

I'd be interested in see the finished product. As it looks now, it needs some major adjustments. Not meaning to be overly critical as I admire anyone who attempts such a project, but the whole front end needs alot of work.

A friend recently build me a custom KITT from a 1:16 Pontiac Firebird and he hand built the nose, dash and overhead console. See what you think.

The nose is perfect!

I think it looks cool. Just work on the nose, put the license plate KNIGHT on it, and you've got it. :kitt: :D

How much bigger is the 1/6 scale compared to the Kenner KITT? I'm curious about the size comparison.
