    That is an awesome start to a very cool project. I had no idea Force ever raced a Vette.

    This is so amazing. All I can say is as a modeler " I am not worthy"

    I have thought this too but then my creative juices kick in and I realize knitting just isn't my thing. Thanks for sharing Ray and Justin

    Art this is such an awesome project. I love Midgets. Did your brother go the Chilli bowl this year? I know his car appears to be set up for pavement, but I thought I would ask.

    Here is a couple pictures of my most recent project. I was really pleased with the progress. The paint looked good the decals looked good. Then I clear coated and the model was reuined. In a split second all the work I put into it down the the drain. One side looks great one side looks like a horror movie.
    Slixx recommend Testors clear coat and not Tamyia I used Testors but applied it too heavy. The hobby is humbling and it keeps my pride in check. Thankfully there are some absolutely amazingly generous people on this forum and one of them is sending a new set. So it is into the brake fluid the body goes. Learning is an up hill battle.

    Is the tonue cover molded on or is it a separate piece? Thanks

    Awesome idea. Was the tonue molded as pert of the body or is it removable? I will be following this build.
