Hey everyone,
Here is my latest completion: Jr's Black Bud car.

I started out with the 06 monte and turned it into a plate car. I used a piece of .020 Evergreen and wrapped it around the nose. I cut the kit valence off too. I painted it with Tamiya Black and the decals are Mike's Powerslide. This was an awesome sheet that was printed perfectly. The registration of the colors was perfect and the white was very white with not even a hint of bleed.

PS: Don't know why the pics are so small, gotta love Fotki. :roll:

I boxed in the exhaust to give the illusion of a SS exhaust.

I added a taller spoiler with braces and spoiler bolts from stick pins.

I also added rear camera. I made the half moon base out of .010 sheet cut with a hole punch. I took a piece of half round to make the lens.

Joe, glad to see you posting one of your NASCARs here. I think I had the only ones posted so far.

That came out really great! When I finally make the much talked about order from Mike, I will grab a set of those decals myself...:)

Great build there, Joe! That #8 does look good on the old black & silver.

I was just talking to a buddy about how cool it used to be watching that color scheme slice & dice the pack at Talladega with less than 10 laps to go. Ah, the good ol' days...
