No, my father built these.  It were one of the times where our interests overlapped, since he builds stock cars and I do movie cars.


Very good builds, glad to see them...that movie was filmed at my home racetrack, the old Athens Ga Speedway, I was there for most of the filming.

In Topic: Removing Tamiya Tape residue

I've never had Tamiya tape leave any residue whatsoever. I suspect that its not residue at all, but it was laid down before the base color was dry enough.
However, if it really is residue, rub your finger on the side of your nose and buff the area with your fingertip. The natural skin oils will remove any residue. Wash with detergent afterward.

The Lindberg '40 Ford makes good stock car fodder, too (not my build):

Those are Wendell Scott cars from the movie "Greased Lightning". Are those yours?

In Topic: Old Decals

Not sure if you want to adjust that shipping price - seems kind of high for some light weight decals.


No, its not. Most things like that get sent USPS priority, and you most certainly want delivery confirmation on it too....so no, shipping price is in line.

In Topic: Your worst builds

Like Ray said most of the BAD ones are in a landfill or something. But I do have this one from my late teens. I'd just discovered the model mags and had realized what the big boys were doing as far as detailing. So this was my first attempt at major modifications and detailing. You might look at the first two and say, "Oh that's not too bad."  :D  Then look at the third.  :lol:

Other than the plug wires, I actually kinda like that. :P
