This model was built by a friend of mine, not by me, this is only his second model he's built ever. He built it box stock and used mostly Tamiya sprays to paint it since he has no airbrush;

He has no photo hosting service, that's why I'm posting this for him. His name is Jim.

Thanks Raul! I'm learning....and have a long way to go. But my biggest issue is other hobbies...if I just put all my efforts into the modeling I'd be further along...but I'm really enjoying it!!

My first model last fall was a "Jungle Jim" funnycar who I used to root for back in the early 1970s. So when I worked on that model I contacted his former co-owner and girlfriend and she supplied me pics and info on the car. Must admit that was errie feeling to me....after all these years the person who I used to watch from behind the fence at the track was now giving me info on the car. If you told me that back in 1972 this would happen...well...I'd never believe ya! :P

Then again if you told me 36 years later I'd be back to building models I'd tell you thats crazy! :lol:
