    I believe the unit in the Monogram sprint cars are all the same and they are KSE. They look similar but the are not a Schroeder.  I've contemplated scratch building one and casting...if that comes to fruition I will post here.

    Ford Poppy red was the same color AJ Foyt used on all of Indy Cars. This is well documented. Look at some pics of his 1977 Indy 500 winning Coyote and compare them to you pro stock. Foyt coined this color "Coyote" red.

    I'm not real familiar with the pro touring scene and I have question regarding this style. Do they typically run them without inner fender wells? I would think if they get driven it would beat the heck out of the fenders from road klag. Did you have to leave them off the car to get it to sit right? Thanks, just curious. 
  6. mrindy77 added a post in a topic How did you get started in model building?   

    My dad built model cars in his youth and continued to build as an adult. I think it was 1973 or 74 when we he purchased this MPC 1/72 Wildcat kit for me. He helped me build it during the Super Bowl of that year. From then on I was hooked. I started building WWII airplanes in 1/72...then 1/48...I think I built every Monogram airplane there was. Then I started building military...we stopped one year at Squadron Hobby in Illinois on a family vacation...wow...I never knew there were so many models. While displaying my dioramas in a local mall/show I was introduced to the Model Car Club of Minnesota...from then on it was cars...I always have had an affinity for cars as my dad took me to car shows but I had never seen the detail that these guys were doing. From early 1984 it has been model cars. I've never taken a break from modeling...in fact it became a full time job for 2 years. This was the first kit...

    I'm leaving the roof on. You can call it a coupster if you are so inclined.

    1925 Ford Model T Track Coupster
    I've had this one on the back burner for while. Time to start making some progress. This is the initial mock up, its a AMT 1925 Model T, its an older one that was molded in black. I used the Edmunds modified front grille and scratch built a belly pan. Tires are Herb Deeks big and littles with some kidney bean Halibrands I found in the parts box. I'm going to stuff a Ford DOHC Indy motor from the Gurney Eagle kit into it. Tight fit but it appears it will work.

  15. mrindy77 added a post in a topic Pretty much done with resin.   

    After reading this thread, it was like peeling the scab off an old wound. I too have waited 3+ years to receive product from a resin caster. I doubt I will ever receive the order for 3 Indy cars. The resin caster has left a swath of unshipped orders in our little Indy car model building community. We were also Facebook 'friends', and when I questioned the where about of my order I was unfriended. I have a string of private emails from the Indy car blog I am a member of and it is almost comical the response I'd get after questioning where my order was. All just stringing  me along until I no longer had any recourse via Paypal or Ebay. I can sympathize with anyone who has been cheated out of money by so called fellow modelers. Caveat Emptor.
