Like Dave Blaney alot. Good friends with his brother "The Lowrider" Dale Blaney from Sprint car racing. Good racing family.

What did you use to build the window net ? Was thinking that some duct tape may work perfectly without knowing what you used.

Thanks guys for the nice comments.
Jake,
I should've taken more pics of the inside. All that detailing is pretty much hidden now.
(Blaney did wear a plain white helmet in the pics I have at the 500.)
Deron,
I cut small strips of masking tape and stick them too a piece of wax paper in the size for the net. Then gently remove from the paper and spray the sticky side 1st, then the non-sticky side which is the side that is folded under. Gives the sticky side more texture. Hope that helps.

Good stuff man. Taking notes to put in my rolodex for future Nascar builds. Would like to try this format. Nice work all the way around my friend. I really like it.

Like someone else mentioned, great to see Dave Blaney in scale. Great model, I love the helmet detail - never seen that done!

Nice looking build, Hondo! I had to take a second look at the first picture to be sure it was a model. Love the background you have.
