Ian Madsen Sprint Car #18

09 October 2014 - 07:40 AM

If you follow midwest sprint car racing, you know who Ian Madsen is. If you don't, well he just won the points champion award for the latest season concluding in Knoxville, Iowa. I'm collecting items for this upcoming build and wasn't really sure where to post it. Not really an oval or dirt track category here on the forums besides NASCAR. The decals are all done and printed by my friend Chief Joseph. I have tons of pictures because a relative is one of the major sponsors of this racer. I'm having the rims turned by Jim at MicroNitro and I can't wait to see what he comes up with.

 

I'll post a few of the pictures I have of the actual 1:1 car later this afternoon.

 

Stay tuned....this will be fun.

Walt's Puffer Too T-Bucket Altered - updated 6/20/15

26 July 2014 - 12:59 PM

Hi guys - when I first saw the posted photo, I just knew I'd have to build this little known altered. Currently, I'm collecting all of the parts needed and will try my hand at making the tubular chassis out of brass, something new for me. I've found a few photos on the innerweb but there aren't many. I'll have to improvise on a few things but no big deal. The original car is being rebuilt and I've sent the builder a PM on the HAMB site so we'll see what happens.

 

Onto the picure.

I've drawn up the decals and will send these off to Joseph at Fireball once I get them sized.

Stay tuned and thanks for following along. Comments welcome and encouraged.
