Hello Everybody. This is the only Nascar build I've completed so far!

It was a fun.....but somewhat frustrating build for me!

One of my all time favorite drivers.  Very nice car, the green looks just right, nice job on the decals.  Glad to see another NASCAR modeler!

I believe that the frustration was worth it.  That is a very nice build!  I really like the end result.  Thanks for sharing it with us.

Again......Thank you for the nice comments!    Yes Bill, This is my only NASCAR build that actually got finished!  I did almost got a Earnhardt Lumina finished, But my dog wiped it off the table with his big nose! LOL!

And I've started many more Earnhardt builds since then! Just never finished any of them! (Like a lot of my builds!)

Looks awesome. I meet Harry Gant years ago in Daytona, he was an awesome guy. That model looks really cool.That Monte Carlo was one of my favorite body styles in racing.

Well done, a nice and clean build.  As was posted earlier, that shade of green looks just right, what is it?

That looks great! What paint did you used for the green? I too met Harry Gant a couple of times in Atlanta,he's one of the nicest drivers that I have ever met.
