    Simply awesome.
  2. Which model brand is best for NASCAR?

    Thanx everyone. I went with the Monogram 1995 model. Not expensive, just wanted to get a good one and that's what this community is for. Thanx again!
  3. Which model brand is best for NASCAR?

    Looking for any advice or opinion on which is the best brand of kit to build a NASCAR 1/24 or 1/25? I've seen the Revell, AMT and Monogram one's out there with price varying on all with none looking superior based on price alone. I would like to know from builders as to which were the most consistent as far as sprue cleanliness, fit, directions (what are those?) and overall experience. Thanx in advance.
  4. Watkins Kenworth 925

    Very nice. Just starting one.

    Very nice build. Great detail work. Impressive cage work.
  6. '81 Dodge Omni "Mahogany Rush"

    Finished up my tribute car of my friends Omni that he owned back in the early 80's. It was a kit bash of 3 models. I used an MPC Omni for the body, an MPC Pro-Stock "Firefighter" for the chassis and wheels, then used the Johan Sox & Martin 'Cuda for the dual-plug Hemi. I actually wired both distributors with the correct firing order, which was tough and something I wanted to do for myself, LOL. Used an aftermarket Lenco for the trans with the shifter. Built the roll cage and hood scoop from scratch best I could. The color of the original car was Candy Purple, so I painted it that from a rattle can, but it is more maroon than blueish of the original. I had 2 different sets of decals to use. Special thanx goes out to disconovaman and echoxrayniner from this board for the decals. I showed it to Frank Marino and he was floored. I was happy to capture a car from our past. Thanx for looking. Pics are of the 3 kits, the real car and my tribute model. Original Album cover Frank Marino with car at track On the starting line

  13. 62 VW Samba Bus

    Engine was just a molded facade.
  14. Finished up the Revell Baja Bronco kit. I replicated my dad's old Bronco. Had a tough time getting the kit for a decent price. I thought that too many mod add-ons would be needed for the stock bronco and it would be more expensive in the end, so this was cheaper and easier than cutting the fenders and adding after market flares. I don't know why this kit is over-priced. I matched the color and white interior of the real one as close as I could. No pics of the real one unfortunately. It was a great off-road vehicle as I drove it many times out in Ocotillo Wells and Salton Sea way back in the late 70's. His was a '73 I believe. I bought after market tires (solid) which were just cast so horribly and in white! Won't mention where, but I will not be going back there. The rear gas cap went flying off to Neptune as I tried to glue it on, so I used chrome pen for that. LOL. Thanx for looking.
