Topics I've Started

'69 Owens Corning Corvette

04 July 2014 - 12:04 PM

Kit: Monogram Owens Corning Corvette

Decals: Fred Cady - stripes & numbers, Kit decals - sponsors, Kieth Mark - emblems



I have several period photos in my reference library of the OC sponsored Corvette of the ’69 season running with full windscreens and even hardtops.  None of the photos are of this specific OC livery however.  Regardless I chose to build my model with a full windscreen.  This was built several years ago when my philosophy was less rigorous show we say.   My approach now to vintage race car modeling is to build a specific car (chassis number) at a specific point in time.  I hope you like it anyway.  The build is based largely on an article in Motor Racing Replica News written by Bud Thon.  A bit of trivia Bud Thon was an animator with Pixar.  His work includes Toy Story and Finding Nemo.

I would be interested in any 1/24 or 1/25 scale kit from any manufacturer; parts kits, glue-bombs, built-ups or complete kits.  Let me know what you have.  Lots of stuff to trade.

Porsche 914/6 GT '70 Le Mans

22 June 2014 - 03:56 PM

Okay so now that I have a resin copy back from HRM I can finally start to build the kit.  I want to build the Sonauto entry that won the GT class in 1970 (the 914's very first appearance at  Le Mans) and finished 6th overall!  The picture is of a cloned car but it will give you an idea of what the car looks like.
