My latest WIP, King Richard's 1984 200th Win Grand Prix.
This car is painted with exact paint that the team used back in the day. The decals are from Slixx including the tire decals. I also "Dirtied" the tire lettering for more of a "Vintage" look.... It should be finished in the next few days since its a commisioned shelf queen.

Dave,
Life long Petty fan here and I must say excellent model. I wish I was the one who commisioned you to build it for me. My son Joe knows you from BAD and I have seen much of your work,so this is really not a surprise to me. Keep up the great work!
