    about 35 pages ago, I saw one of the best motors ever on a model forum and thought this guy can't possibly back the rest of the build at that same level ... and good gosh almighty, here you are ...

    Scott, I believe the proper term is "little person" and I'll bet money  he fits in your cockpit ...

    Sorry about the delay Ken ... we're all getting set over here to celebrate our independence when we kicked the day lights out of the ... oops ...

    Congrats on the news not being worse Harry. You're the main reason I use these forums.
    Here's hoping for a speedy recovery

    scott or anybody,
    would the body panels be removed often, say for lubrication or something?
    If so, I'm not sure the lacing would be all that elegant ... at the time of actual racing anyway ...

    Thanks Tim, Tony, and Scott, much appreciated
     Steve, you're correct. The car raced with an engine by TRACO with grey valve covers. But my version has the very first factory L-88 as delivered personally by  Dick Guldstrand. This engine was used right up just before the race before it was replaced by the TRACO. The car was prepped in just a few weeks from the factory and my version is before Penske got Sunoco as a sponsor. Champion and Firestone sponsor decals are missing as well.  The duct-taped headlights were of that time as well. I hope you read my intro on page 1 ... the stories about this car are incredible.
    Tom, thanks. Your comment about the stance is most appreciated since that is what caught my eye when I chose this subject. It's one if the greatest looking mid-60s Corvettes ever to me and that I came close to capturing that "stance" means a lot.

    Done

    Thanks Bruce and Bo ...
    I got some used foam core signs Bruce, but they're really white (on the backs) and so I'm going to look at a leftover roll of mulch matting I got in the shed ... flat black might be a cool background ...
    just have to finish the race lights and maybe adjust the rear wheels ... they're out a couple of inches ...

    Don't do anything yet ... someone here will probably help out ...
    if worse comes to worse you could (as a last resort) sand down and use something like this:
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Archer-Fine-Transfers-G-Scale-Railcar-Resin-Rivets-7-8-head-AR88082-/181033786753
    to get the rivets back ... but I don't know about the scale
     
    good luck

    I got a few more details to go but so far:

    ... and then, a study-up on photographing ...

       right?
    i wanted to work on those "minor details" with this "in-betweener" model ... I ended up finding one of the major race cars in American history that I didn't know anything about and those details became all the more important ...
    i wanted to develop my exhaust making (thanks again BaddGass), paint, decals, BMF (new to me), etc. ... and this turned out to be the perfect platform ... I just thought it woulda taken months less time ...
