    Really great work on the details!  That is what makes for an outstanding model.  Nice job!

    David, I think you're getting this model building thing down......  Another very nice NASCAR model from your workbench.

    I can't even begin to pretend to know how you feel or what is running through your mind right now.  I hope they have caught it in its earliest stages.  There are so many people pulling for you, sending positive thoughts and prayers your way.  It will be good to see you when you are a proud member of the cancer survivors club!  Go kick some cancer ass, Harry!!!

    Very, very impressive!  I'll be following this one for sure.

    What a great looking model of a pretty cool car!   Nice clear photos too.  I'm glad to see that it is a nice model to build.  I have all of these kits.  I really need to break one out and give it a go.

    The hood fit of this kit brings up an interesting point that I have mentioned in other threads.  Harry, I know you do not compete but your models are definitely contest worthy and no doubt contest winners.  I would bet money that if you were to put this model on a contest table, spectators as well as judges, would say "what a nice model, too bad the hood does not fit right".  But the fact is the hood on the prototype didn't fit right either.  My point is, older race cars are seldom pristine racing machines and if you build a correct replica, you are more than likely going to get dinged in a model contest.  I have actually placed a picture of the real race car's "wart" next to my model so that the judges could see that my model was built to replicate the real car.

    Geesh, how did I not comment on this one??  Great looking model!  Looks good from every angle!
  11. Nacho Z added a post in a topic 2000 Lowes #31 Monte Carlo (Mike Skinner)   

    Another very nice model of, in my opinion, a great looking NASCAR racer.  I liked Mike Skinner and hoped he would do well.  Never really did in the top series.  He did better in the truck series, if I remember correctly.

    By all means, do a detailed WIP thread.  There are a number of guys here who do a great job with their WIPs.  I like to follow the WIPs as I can learn from them.  My suggestions are these:  take clear pictures and explain what you are doing and how you are doing it.  Something that may be routine to you may be totally new to someone else.
    I look forward to seeing your work.
