Just wanted to share my short track build I've got going. It's gonna be my effort to try and keep up with Clay Kemp :lol:

This is a car of a local driver who just happens to have a couple track championships and is a really great guy!

Here's the car I'm trying to build

Here's the body mocked up with sheet plastic (scratchbuilt)

Here's where I'm at on the chassis (scratchbuilt)

I know these cars aren't the most popular subject,but I hope you enjoy what I've got going!

I like it. Used to paint all the Rocket Chassis from Mark Richards Racing. Great job on that chassis. Is it safe to say its a GRT?

I don't know GRT from ABC but that is one awsome chassis. How long did that take? I have a hard time doing a regular chassis. 8)

Another small update,the chassis bar mockup is done. Next on the agenda is to fix or replace some of the bars that don't look quite right,and do a little refinishing. At that point it's time for all the little mounting tabs on the car then the interior and top sheetmetal mockup.

That is still amazing. Do you work on the full size cars? That chassis is a maze of tubes. 8)
