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

Recommended Posts

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.

Nice racing 'Stang Kevin! That old Hasagawa kit has a lot of potential for its age, and it looks like your elbow grease paid off too. Congrats!

Love the topic. Not stolen just appropriately modified. Great looking model and way to think outside of the box, in a manner of speaking!

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.

I always thought the pit crew at an air race changed the prop, not the tires. :gray-plane:

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....
