Very nice job, Walter!

I have a question totally unrelated to the model: by chance, did you serve in the military say around the early to mid 80s? If so, were you stationed at Ft. Ord?

Uh, no, but I was a Boy Scout in 1965. Does that count? :unsure:

I had a comrade with the same name (Walter Frey) and so I was just curious. I never did the Scout thing, just regular Army.

Those "Awful Fuel Altereds".  I mean the Website of course.

 

A super, super model.  I love it.  Could you give us some insight into which and what was bashed?  Starting with the basic frame and body, which kit is it?

 

Looks great!

 

Michael

I have to try and remember. Gotta write this stuff down when I build.
Body and chassis rails are Bantam Blast. Roll cage was modified to look more
period correct. Scratch built coil over shocks and modified front susp.
Basic engine is a Revell Parts Pack 427 with parts box blower and hat.
Slicks and front wheels are resin items purchased at NNL East.
Front tires were boiled in hot water (really!) and stretched to fit the wheels.
Sponsor decals were made by me to depict a fictional So Cal shop.
That's all I remember at the moment.

Thanks for the insight, Walt.  Now I've a better picture of the work you had.  I love them awful altereds.
