I'll be darned I never have looked at those graphic sheets.
I wonder why they split them up like that?
This is very cool.
Thanks!

The Grotheer car runs what look like steel mud flaps on the rear wheelwells.

They keep the rubber, from the burn outs, off the bottom of the 1/4 panels. The Revell 69 Nova has decals, of the rubber build up.

They did that several other times for other cars or changing up the spelling then the builder corrects it. It is away around getting permission and licencing ...............

I was going to build the black Prudhomme Snake III Cuda off of multiple Slixx sheets, until Chuck Boerne brought out his set.

I had never noticed them before on any other Pro Stock car but it makes sense.

Got a little more done this weekend.
The motor is wired and finished the interior.
Have the wheel and tires picked out and got the headlights done.
Have a set of resin bumpers for it.
