A little out my comfort zone in what I like to build. Nascar to me belongs to the memory of "Race on Sunday, Sell on Monday!" and that the cars on the track had more of a persona equal to or more than that of the driver. But we who build what we love are entitled to our own biases....and then their are times we need to try something different.
I bought this kit a few years back with the hope of getting to complete it. A little over a year ago when I was inbetween builds . I broke out the Buick finished up the chassis and painted the body at least twice....not to my satisfaction or to at least 4 can of paint so I decided to store away until I was ready. In the meantime PowerSlide came out with the correct sheet aside from the Kit decals (The Miller logo on the hood and door #'s is slanted, the kit's are straight) and those were acquired to do a more correct version of Bobby's ride.
When painting the Andretti 68 Cyclone I thought the gold ( Krylon ShortCuts Gold Leaf) was more towards the "correct" gold than Testors Gold Met. for the Buick. With the Styrene Gods blessing they granted me a Do over on the paint job that I got in one shot . It wasn't the best that I have done but Thank Goodness that Buick of Bobby's had a lot of decals to hide those "little" flaws . Good or bad it's a done deal and now it's rolled out of the box and onto the track. Thanks for looking and hope ya enjoy...Chuck!
P.S Still ain't figured out how to date a camera
