Thanks, everyone! This was the first model I've built in 24 hours since I was a kid....did it all the time back then, why is it so much harder now? Lol! But it was fun. I'm already looking forward to next years build.

amazing job, better than I could do in a month of sundays. Didn't mean to sound snide about the window net, was a serious question as I havent built any early  model stock cars, and very few newer models, so I did not want to assume I knew.  Anyhow great build, and love the idea of doin it in 24 hours, setting challenges like that can take the monotony out of a build.

:wacko:   :wub:  B)

 

Ohhh my, only way I might have tried something like this would have been with a Michael Waltrip Bahari Racing Pennzoil Pointiac since it had fewer contingency sponsors! DANG good job for a 24 hour build. So are you seeing weird mirages now due to the sleep deprivation?

Tommy,  I gotta ask the obvious question.  What flavor Ice Cream is that???    Just kidding, great looking build.  Tim was truley one of the greats that never had chance to really prove himself, what a loss.

Great looking build, keep up the great work.

Thanks, guys! It ain't perfect for sure, but it was fun to build a model in 24 hours. I've been a truck driver for the best part of 37 years, so going without sleep ain't really nothing new. I did get pretty drowsy around the 2:30 AM area, but a couple hours nap fixed it! By the way, I don't know why I titled this the '86 Monte Carlo....it's actually the '87 version....Tim's last ride.

Thank goodness most of those contengencies were grouped together! If I had to apply them one by one, I'd probably still be decaling!

French Vanilla. That's my favorite flavor ice cream, lol. And yes, you right about Tim...he would've been one of the greatest.

Great build Tommy. It's hard to do anything for 24 hrs. but building a kit (with decals !) in one day is a great accomplishment.

Tim was a great guy.  I raced karts with Tims brother Tom at Summit Point Raceway in West Virginia when I raced the Enduro Series with the World Karting Association.  Right off the Inwood exit on 81.  Great guy.  Would help anyone with anything if you simply asked for his help.
