Not much to update here, however I am on vacation this week and plan to get a good bit done with plenty of updates by the end of the week.

The body has been painted with a white base coat with graphics to follow. I have the paint scheme all planned out and I hope it comes out how I have it pictured. The chassis has a simple black pint coat with plenty of detail painting soon to come.

O.K., you asked for it.

First is a pic. of the engine progress. I used the basic block, heads and bellhousing from the Jukebox kit but I added a resin TEM Lenco.

So here are the first pics. of where I am going with the graphics. This is just the beginning and I will be photographing it in stages. These are homemade decals that are taking some time to apply as it is requiring lots of setting solution and then cutting through all of the panel lines. So far so good.

Thanks for the comments.

The side panels will work as follows. One layer of snakeskin goes down first followed by the side panel from a Slixx Nascar sheet. There is a small section of clear between the blue and white on the side panel that the snakeskin underlayment will show through. Once these are down a thin section of snakeskin for the rocker panel will be added.

Then I start to add sponsor logos. This is where I am at right now with more decals to add later.

Looks fantastic, Wayne! The paint job is beautiful, nice smooth finish and great looking decals. Is that scoop going to be like that on finished model, or are you going to add some decals to it?

The engine being used is straight out of the Jukebox Ford Top Sportsman kit.

The scoop is not painted yet. I have a few different ideas for the scoop but haven't quite decided yet.

This is one of the coolest builds i've seen since I've joined this site! You really have an eye for "lines"; this car looks 225 mpg standing still!
