Here's the Monogram Mark Martin Thunderbird.  It's mostly box-stock with only a few changes.  I cut off the stock exhaust pipes and used aluminum tubing instead.  Also, the windshield was broken so I scoured until I found a spare that would work.  It took some massaging, but I got it to fit.  Also, the body was warped pretty well, but I got it back into shape (pretty much).  The most difficult part of this build for me was simply mixing the paints to match the decal colors so I didn't have white areas around the windows and white roof rails.  It's simple, but it was fun.

Nice work, I always liked that paint scheme.  Mark helped Roush Racing become what it is today, great driver, one of my all time favorites!

I am in agreement with the other guys here, nice Build. I'm a Mark Martin fan as well, and I don;t think I've seen this version too many times.
