Here are pics of my latest Revell Kurtis Kraft Offy midget builds. I can't believe I already built 12 of these kits (11 Offys and one V-8 60). This is a very well engineered kit and I hope Revell brings out some other subjects like these (maybe some old champ cars like a Kuzma Offy - HINT, HINT - Revell marketing).


Did my typical hinged hood (using 0.040 inch OD SS tube and 0.005 inch thick SS wire.


Airbrushed with Tamiya TS paints. I cut the decanned and degassed paint 1:1 with Dupli-Color lacquer thinner and use an Aztek A470 airbrush at 35psi with a 1mm (yellow) nozzle. The Alclad II Chrome redone parts were airbrushed at 15psi over Model Master Black.


The Walter Pew #7 Offy decals are my latest offered through Scale Auto Details.

The Walter Pew Offy midget. My first midget decal set with silver numbers and logo instead of gold.

Extremely nice. I love the figures. Can you expand on the figures? Did you sculpt them?
