Just finished another one of my All Pro Racing Series cars from the mid 80's, this time it's the 1984 series champion Darrell Brown. Revell ASA kit, paint is Duplicolor white and Testors gold with Duplicolor Chevy Orange chassis/cage. Decals are my own. Thanks for looking!

Hi,

That's a really nice build.

How did you do the decals - they look the business.

Cheers,

Jim

Tom...Great looking model, I've always loved the Revell ASA cars.   This car looks fast just sitting there,  Keep up the great work!!!!!

 

Maybe Revell should consider reissuing the ASA cars, they seem to bring a fairly good price on e-bay, so it looks like the demand is still there.

 

Happy modeling, Vernon

Thanks so much, guys! I'm glad you like it. I really miss racing like this.

I'd love to see them do that, but I won't hold my breath. I only have a couple left. I'm currently gathering up parts to build one of these chassis into a Whelen-type modified.

Well, ok, but there's really nothing to see there, all that is pretty much box-stock. I didn't even add any plug wires or anything....

Very well done, nice clean build. I like it. These are great kits to build many short track cars from.

I see you did not use the kit hubs, who's are those? They look like FRW.

Tommy I like your style, but you very well know that by now. I may be wrong James ,but I believe those hub's are made by Tommy, the wheel's on his build's alway's draw me in.

Thanks again, everybody!

Well, in the beginning they were Freds. I would file down the backside to make them fit better, because they were too thick. When Fred's site closed up and I couldn't buy them anymore, I ended up casting them myself so I would have some to use. The wheels are reworked from the kit wheels too.
