  1. 1st NASCAR build in about 30 years

    I was really impressed with the fit and finish of the parts in the Revell kit so I bought another one for my next project. This one I will try my hand at painting the body. And since it is another Ford I am pretty familiar with the parts already and I think that will make it a little easier for assembling. What is the best tape for masking?????

    THANKS FOR THE INFO.............................
  3. 1st NASCAR build in about 30 years

    I know I picked a good driver. When he took over after Dale Sr died, he won his 1st race in only his 3rd Cup start at Atlanta, then went on to win at Chicago. Won Rookie of the Year plus also ran the full BUSCH series that year and won the Championship. Talk about pressure for a young driver. Pretty impressive as far as I am concerned.
  4. 1st NASCAR build in about 30 years

    Went as far as I could with the model. I don't have the dexterity in my hands and fingers like I used to. I couldn't get all the roll cage pieces to fit along with some of the other small and tiny pieces. Got to figure out a way to grip and hold small pieces and to paint them. Will continue on with another project and try to improve on the quality.

  7. 1st NASCAR build in about 30 years

    I am 74 years old and have not built a car in a long time. So I bought Harvick model and started working on it. I wasn't ready to try masking and painting the body so I installed all the decals my pudgy little hands could handle and then clear coated the whole car. The clear coat really made the white plastic body really shine................I didn't paint the body at all so I am really happy with the finish.............looks like white porcelain in person. I have the chassis about 95% done so I will post pics of that when I am done. Looks like I am hooked again.

    Beautiful job on the model...................glad Joey got it instead of Truex..................still a lot of empty seats in the stands for a championship race..................NASCAR has a long way to go to fix things.
