  1. So I was just wondering if anyone had heard if any company or cottage industry company was doing a model of the current Cup cars? I’d really like to do a current Chevy Camaro, especially a Chase Elliott one! Any tips appreciated. Thanks, Jed
  2. Hey, I’m kinda getting back into building models and had a question about building an ‘80s chassis and roll cage. I am working on an Monogram ‘85 Elliott Coors T-Bird and was needing some tips on the best way to paint a roll cage and chassis. Do you assemble the roll cage to the chassis and then paint it or paint the pieces separately and then try to glue them together? Any help appreciated, Jed
  3. So I recently bought a vintage 1985 Coors NASCAR Thunderbird that I just noticed the body was slightly warped on. The body has a slight 'twist' and the right front and left rear fenders are higher that the other diagonal fenders. They are off around 1/8". What is the best way to correct this? I assume I'll need to gently heat the body and slowly twist the opposite direction. I don't want to ruin this body so any help appreciated. Thanks, Jed
  4. Thank you for the help but I can’t see the pics. Can anyone else?
  5. Hey, I’m getting started on Bill Elliott’s 1985 Coors T-Bird and would love any engine pics or any other reference photo’s y’all might know of. Please, any help on my quest for as accurate a model as is reasonably possible.

  7. Really enjoying this WIP! Your engine looks great!
  8. Great looking Charger 500 and very interesting driver subject!
  9. Those are awesome! You should cast them!
  10. So I just bought a 1985 Coors Monogram T-Bird off the auction site and am excited to try building a kit that got me started in modeling so many years ago. I am looking to build a replica of either the Southern 500 car or the superspeedway car (two laps down at Dega!?!). Any tips on building the Monogram 'Birds? It's been a long while and I want to get this one as good as I can. I found an old thread on using the Monogram Pro Stock body for the superspeedway cars. Has anyone actually completed a car doing this? Seems kinda cool but would require finding another rare kit I suppose. Any tips on these classic Monogram kits appreciated. Thanks, Jed
  11. I am looking for advice and was hoping some of you guys could help. My teenage son is really into the original Ford GT40’s and I was hoping we could build a model of one together, especially since he’s stuck at home during this quarantine. I’m having a hard time finding a Fujimi kit for less than $100 on the big auction site. Is this my best option? Anyone know of how else to come by one? Are decal sheets available for this kit? He would probably want to build the Ken Miles car if possible. He’s never built a model car but I’ve done some fairly extensive modeling, just been a while. Any help or advice appreciated. Thanks, Jed
  12. I think it looks great! I especially like the thinnned front fenders
  13. So I have the basic shell of a spray booth built out of plywood. I need to paint/coat it so I can finish assembling it. What do you all recommend I paint or coat it with? I will likely be using it to spray typical model enamels and acrylics. I'll post pics once I figure out how to do that Thanks, Jed
  14. BTW, where did you get those decals?!?
  15. That car is awesome! Being an ol’ Georgia boy, I am going to have to build that car since they built them in Atlanta.
