What happens when you give a plane guy some Nascar decals?

Hello Everyone,

 

I hope no one is offended that I kind of 'stole' the topic title from the previous topic, but I couldn't resist.

 

This is what I did after I got an old Hasegawa 1/32 P-51D on Ebay for $6.00 with no decals or box and a friend in my local IPMS chapter gave me some extra Nascar decals.

 

Maybe not my best build (about 2 weeks), but it did take third place in the 'hypothetical' category at ModelZona (Nov. 2013).

 

OK, OK, OK so there were only two other entries in the category :smiley9::smiley9:

 

Anyway, it was a fun build. When I do it again however, I will remove all raised detail from the kit.

Yes...but I would NOT want to be in the pit crew when that beast makes a stop for new tires. I'd be a bit nervous about the rotating prop.

Good Work! That's why Hypothetical is a category, for those who like this angle.

 

I will never forget the Space Shuttle painted in Thunderbird markings years ago....
