I know it's not an Ecto-1A but I thought I'd post it here being it's a Model. Two things factor high in this build.

1) My skill level

2) My hands' stubborn refusal not to shake. "Oh you're doing detail work? Well F%^K YOU!*Shakes like crazy*

This car is made from parts left over from my Video game inspired Ecto-1. I had an AMT kit and a polar lights kit and I made one car using both. But then I was stuck with stuff left over. You might've noticed my parts wanted thread, well while I'm looking for parts I had to reluctantly Kit Bash to complete the car part of the Ecto-1. I tried to do the interior in a way that matched the colors and such of the Cartoon Ecto-1. let me know If I came close or not. Also I'm aware the interior needs touch up work.

That's where some of the Kit Bashing took place. The polar lights Ecto-1 didn't have all the interior parts (why would it with that dark glass that can't be seen through). Plus it matches as close as I can the interior seats of the cartoon Ecto-1. Also had to do some kit bashing for the tires (Kid had painted the rubber silver making them useless).

If you want to do the cartoon version, why not get a Kenner and just repair (if needed) & paint? But then again, I also like the idea of what you're doing. If you have kits to Frankenstein, you're going in the right direction (with full customization). Can't wait to see it progress.

I already have that project started:

The thing is, the rack parts I got are from an Ecto-1A. The same as the First car I put together and I want to make it different. Besides I've got plans for the Ecto-1A parts.

Yeah I've got a few kits kicking around that could probably complete this model. The Top equipment shouldn't be too difficult to make either.
