Very cool. I recently built one stock. Are those the fender flares from the kit? How did you get the wheels/tires to fit? Thanks,

Just built the Ford Ranger ("Road Ripper", I think) with my 5 year old daughter. Good for the most part, BUT... Wheel/Tire assembly was tricky (it would have been nice if they mentioned fronts and rears were different sizes) and the rear bumper didn't fit without some trimming. Other than that, easy as could be.

I happen to also have a model in that very issue, and take it out now and then to look for ideas. My Junior class-winning model has a lot of flaws and isn't something I'd bring anywhere near a contest today. I like seeing the Pro-street cars, now-dated paint schemes, and the kits popular at the time that one doesn't see very often anymore.

I've been intrigued by these kits, but haven't been able to get one for the right price.

I believe decals can be had for some of them (including the 917) from indycals.net. Just be sure to specify the scale.

Really cool! You're off to a great start. This is one I'd like to build someday. What kit are you using for the body? What decals will you use?

Thanks,
