Just finished this one the other day...Revell's 55 Chevy, painted a dark red, added Slixx decals and a Competition Resins scoop. Got rid of the wing, cleaned that up, & tossed it on my faux chassis...for photos that    I  shot again.  C'mon cobraman-Ray, honest opinion, how are they???? LOL!!

Hmmm? Looks great at first glance. Then I wondered what's powering this thing with the Direct Connection decals. And why are the Jessell decals upside down?

Well...it's air powered. LOL!!!  Ah, about the Jessel decals, you would have to ask Gene at Slixx, I suppose he did em like that coz that's how they are on the real car? ( 68 Dart ) I'm in the dark...what does the sponsor ( Direct Connection ) do? You can tell I dig drag racing, but haven't kept up on em all!? LOL!!!  Used to live by Rte. 66 dragstrip in Joliet IL, now I'm in the stoopid sticks in Indiana!!  LOL!!!  :D ;)

DC was the MOPAR factory race part division...and Ray Barton builds killer Hemis, so that was the reason, not too many Shoebox Hemis around...

 

 

Nicely  done !
