Is there any way to get factory stock wheels for it, like Steve posted a closeup of? I'll get one then. I like it a lot but I'm not going to spend money on a resin I won't build.

I began this adventure on November 7th, 1999. I know this because I painted it on the back of the cab, where it's hidden by the bed.
I finished it the next day, then built am AMT 1994 Mustang that I had recievd for a Christmas gift when it was new, 5 years previous. Then I went to Wal-Maart and got what would be kits #3 and 4, Revell's 48 Woody and 66 GTO respectivly. Then, another trip to Wal-Mart and a cart full of models-my stash was born. (I have saved one of those kits unbuilt, although it does have a poorly applied paint job). Then, I discovered my LHS...

I have MOST of my models. Some went missing. Some fell apart. I hope to find the missing ones someday but I'm not overly concerned about them because they were the AMT prepaints which were the only thing I could bring myself to do in 2002.

I was 15 when I started, by about a week less than a month. I have not stopped yet but I have gotten close a few times. I doubt I'll ever stop totally, the longest I've gone without doing something in the hobby was about 8 months.

Finished 272 models to date, including one in 2011 already. Of that number maybe 1/3 could be considered good if being generous, but I don't care, I am having fun. I built cars only until 2009 but since then I have tried a little of pretty much anything.

I plan to get one at the NNL East come April...most likely will be built in the Smokey Yunick-owned #3 that won the last Daytona beach race, eventually. So, in about 8-10 months, I hope to have a photo to share...but as I always do as soon as I get my hands on it I'll take pictures of what you get!

In Topic: anyone know about this kit ?

It builds up fairly well, too. Watch the wheels...the attachment points are tough and they don't fit the tires all that well. The attachment points on the spoiler aren't great either.

I'll say, once again, that I prefer molded in color kits...

It kind of looks like a futuristic hearse...which is kind of cool, in and of it's own right!
