Here is one i built for one my local race car drivers from the 1960s thru 1980s , this car was run at a local track in the 70s until the track was closed , and the sat in his back yard until ( well still there ) , and he wont sell it to me to restore . so here is pretty much the way it sits right now.

Good diorama. It looks like you have a lot of well done detail, but it's difficult to see it from these wide angle shots. Tighter shots would better show your detail work.

From what I can see though, it looks really good. :unsure:

Building all my own 1:1 racers myself, I can really relate to this one. "A back yard dream"

When building, I spent as much time in the seat dreaming as I did building.

Thanks for showing and thanks for bringing up those memories B)
