  1. Thank you Mark...yea...I'm thinking about going to the RENTON show. If I go this yr...I'll bring it.
  2. The Sun came out for this day only...and I got a few outside pics shot.
  3. Hey Ed..thank you for the compliment... Thanks Robin...That was the idea that I wanted to bring together. A race team that ran the Western Regional circuit.
  4. This build is complete. Here are a few finished pics of it all. It's raining out (go figure) so inside shots will have to do for now. Thanks for stopping in and looking around. The finished trailer... Car loaded on the trailer... Hocked up ready for the road...
  5. Hey Doc.....did we ever get this taken care of? I've sent so much stuff out in the past 6mo....I don't remember if I sent this to you. Do you still need them? Let me know...
  6. Sorry for the late reply Wayne...man...this is a killer build. Those decals must've taken you quite awhile to apply. Getting the right sit on these cars makes or brakes the overall look and fell. You sure did a good job with that. Great looking build Wayne
  7. Thank you Rusty and Rob..for the comments and taking the time to stop in for a look. It is really appreciated...
  8. This Project is finished. Now...It's off to build the trailer... Thanks to ALL who has stopped in and commented on this build. Here's a few pics of the #25 Anniversary Special Sprintcar....
  9. The Decals are on ( second time around for the rear #s). I'll let them set and snuggle in over night as I use Walthers Solvaset. After applying it...It really wrinkles the decal up annnnd that's not a good time to play with the decal. It sure works good though. Makes the decal look like it's painted on. Hopefully I'll be able to finish this puppy up by tomorrow and post finished pics. But...here's a few pics of the finished tires and wheels.
  10. Here's a paint update...got the second color on this past few days. I decided to go with a darker red( Chrysler Clariet Red) instead of the Poppy Red. It still needs to be rub out and the separation stripes put on but....it's starting to get to the finish. I'm still working with the new molds for the tires. I'm trying a new RTV and there's a little learning curve. Getting there though. Here's a few pics of the paint...Thanks for looking in and commenting....
  11. Here's the first color of paint on shots. I some how missed a few little imperfections at the primer stage that really showed themselves in the Met. Silver stage... Soooo...had to do a little sanding and added more putty for the final fix( I hope). Waiting for the body to dry(washed it) and then I'll reprime the touch up area and then shoot more Met. Silver on it. Then I'll tape off and shoot the Poppy Red. All of the other putty areas did good Here's a few pics of the work that was done. ALL of the detail painting painting is finished along with ALL the re-chroming of the Nerf bars and suspension parts. Thanks for looking in folks...
  12. Hey Dave....Thanks for the compliment. Good to see you here. I've got more accomplished but need to take pics for an update.
  13. UPDATE... I've got the front and rear suspension fabbed along with the dash and steering unit. This puppy is almost ready for final sanding and then off to primer and paint...Here's a few pics of the suspension...thanks for stopping in and looking....
  14. Here's a progress update....the Roll bar and support has been Fabbed and is in mock up. When the joint dries on the support bar...I'll make the rear shock mounts for both sides. The torsion bar tubes still need to be fabbed and added to the body. Those(both sides) and the side nerf bars will be done then. Here's a few pics to look at. To me it's starting to give off that cool feeling when looking at these bad boys in the pits...ya know?? LOL Thanks for looking in...
  15. Here's a small update...the nerf bars are in mock up and the roll bar body mounts are setting up for tomorrow...Her's a few pics to look at the progress.. Thanks for stopping by and looking in folks.....
  16. Thanks for the compliment Gil. The Documentation is one thing I usually do for Shows. The other half of the TEAM build is started and is moving along a little slow. The resin kit I'm using for the Sprintcar body wasn't made for what I want to us it for. Sooo...it's a great challenge and it's getting there...
  17. Here's a progress update. The mounting brackets for the front axle and the shock/nerfbar bar has been fabbed. I still have to do a smidgen of body putty and that will be ready for primer. It's starting to look like the idea I am shooting for. Here's a few pics of the front end...
  18. Here's an update. quite a bit of the inside of the body had to be removed in order to get somewhat of a level area to place a backing plate( head) for the intake tubes. All is in mockup....
  19. I've got a little more accomplished on the interior. The I/O box has been cut off of the block and a mount was made to go onto the firewall. The firewall had to be ground down to be somewhat smooth and square( some what).The seat bottom was also work on to get it into the right shape. Material was added to the bottom of it to raise it. Here are a few pics for a look... The pan with seat bottom showing.. I/O box...the mount...and in place..
  20. This one is going on the trailer with the Camper /Truck build I posted on here. Not going to weather this one... Here's one that I did a few yrs back that's weathered...just finished Hot Lap'in...pretty wet track..
  21. Here's the start of the #25 Sprintcar. The Body is from OVAL TRACK LEGENDS ( Gary Doucette). I've removed a lot of the molded on detail as I want to make this car from a different year. There still needs to be a little more work done on it...but it's getting close. The windshield pattern is in mockup for a look at the right height and shape. I just finished grooving the rear wheels and these are the masters for future builds. The Fronts are going to be the master also. I'm still on the fence about closing the cockpit off with the leather snap-on cover ooorrr..leave it open and detail it. It will have an OFFY engine(or a representation of one...it's basically a curbside). Here are a few pics of the mockup of progress to this point...thanks for looking in folks....
  22. Well...this part of the RACE TEAM is finished. Now...it's time to build the Sprint car and then the trailer. I think I'll probably be building both at the same time. Here are a few finished pics of the truck. The Sun peeked out from the clouds just long enough to get a few pics.
  23. Hey Doc...I just happen to have those instructions. I don't see a way to PM you. Sooo..let me know your address and I'll mail a copy of them to you. I have to figure the page setup before I can copy it. Gary
  24. You did a GREAT job on this one Mark. 1/72 scale cars are not easy to do. This one looks good...
  25. Man Joe....You really did a GREAT job on this Camaro. That color of blue is killer...the engine bay is full of nothing but kick butt engine! Man...it looks good Bud...Great job!
