Well, Tom, me too. I am tempted to go crazy looking for ways to customize it, but the honest truth is I like to build the thing pretty much box stock before I start experimenting just to learn my way around the kit . . . so far so good.

I still remember what happened to me at the beginning of this year with the Revell '55 Belaire kit:

I went from this:

Boy, I wish I had a little more money right now, I'd be going like fury on that kit.

Great video, Dr., too. I'm glad we waited for this- it looks absolutely fantastic, and I'll enjoy that tremendously.

Thanks, everyone. Yes, you know, it's not like I'm making a big deal about a kit that didn't exist until now! LOL!

This is very interesting build, can't wait to see Hudson completed. Keep it going, I'll be watching this one. And those Classic Chevrolets are looking really good too.

Virgil, I think you really aught to just create a CBP and then sit back and watch the action. The same for the Revell 48.

Rob, I thought about that, but I don't want to just sit back and watch! I want to build too!

The frenzy of energy that goes around, comes around! Says EYEGORE! He's like the YODA of the Lab-RAT-ory these days! :lol:

Ok, I know this probably isn't the most original of ideas, but I hope to get a couple for these:

I doubt Slixx will, because nowadays if it ain't NHRA, they don't do it. There are others like Just Want To Build A Model that do make very nice NASCAR decal sheets, so we can only hope!
