I started this AMT Dodge Daytona planning on building it one way, but I changed my mind part-way through and decided to make it into a simulation of Neil Castles' car.  The rollcage and a few other things are not accurate, so that's why I called it a simulation.  I made the decals myself and kit-bashed and scratch built everything else that turned the kit into this:

Very cool.  I love the interest in older NASCAR models that seems to be growing.  Nice job.

Bart, I have started doing my own decals for some builds - I'm on a limited budget for my hobby, so this is one way that I can do other things without paying alot more
