This is a project I started last week. Its the Monogram Valvoline March Indy car. Overall not a bad kit, with some really good detail in places, but some parts of the engine are quite poor (however they hardly show). Thanks for looking.

Lookin good!

I built the Mac Tools/Planters Buick/Lola right after I got back in the hobby. Thinking about grabbing a couple of these kits and taking another shot at it.

Very nice Brian. Some of the old Indy car kits are pretty good, and they show up regularly on e-bay for basically peanuts.

I finished this one today. Its a fairly good kit, with reasonable detail. I added engine wiring, fuel lines, brake lines and a 5 point safety harness. Paint is Duplicolor Dark Blue and Duplicolor White, with several coats of clearcoat over the decals. Thanks for looking.
