  1. 1993 Texaco Havoline Lola

    It’s the 1/20th Scale Tamiya snap kit.
  2. Final, completed 1993 Texaco Havoline Lola driven by Mario Andretti at Phoenix. This was his final career win. Thanks for following along and for those who saw it down at the NNL Southern Nationals, I hope you enjoyed looking at it as much as I enjoyed building it!
  3. Mario Andretti’s last win

    The fit is pretty good. The biggest issue that I had was the plastic. I’m guessing it’s the age, but it’s very brittle and I had a lot issues with the tabs breaking off. I had to glue a lot of stuff together, but it wasn’t that big of a deal. The kit decals were also unusable. I got the Shunko set and the Indycals sheet for the neon numbers.
  4. This will be headed to Atlanta with me next month. I used the Tamiya Lola snap kit and Shunko decals. Paint is all Tamiya, no clear, just polished out with Gravity polishes. I filled the seam on the lower nose too. I should have this wrapped up in the next week.
  5. Cleared with Gravity and polished out with the Gravity polishing kit. I can’t wait for the decals!
  6. I was going to keep this quiet until the Atlanta NNL, but I’m not good a keeping secrets! This will be DW’s 1993 Daytona car. I’ll be using the upcoming new Powerslide sheet. I modified the 89/92 Lumina to 93 specs using the Powerslide front/rear bumper set. The paint is Tamiya neon red, black, and white. I’ll clear this with Gravity tomorrow, wet sand, and polish, then wait on the decals. They hopefully should be in in a few weeks.
  7. Darrell Waltrip’s 1990 Tide Lumina

    Sorry, I do not recall. I know MCG makes a Lumina grille set though.
  8. Darrell Waltrip’s 1990 Tide Lumina

    I’m a fan of late 80’s early 90’s, the early 2000’s, and the newest kits.
  9. Here comes another masterpiece... but I’m confused. It’s not a Kyle Petty Pontiac?
  10. Darrell Waltrip’s 1990 Tide Lumina

    Outdoor shots to show how the neon pops.
  11. Looks terrific Clay!! So cleanly done! Perfection!!
  12. Darrell Waltrip’s 1990 Tide Lumina

    It's a photo etch inner screen support with black Tamiya flexible grille screen over top.
  13. Darrell Waltrip’s 1990 Tide Lumina

    They should be in the "Under Glass" section.
  14. This is one of the Revell snap kits done before the glue kit came out. Powerslide decals and Tamiya brilliant blue, no clear... the car was a complete wrap.
  15. Got a request to show this build... not sure if I ever posted this here or not. Mike’s Decals resin body and some custom made decals from Clay Kemp. Paint is Aztek neon green and yellow. This has 2K clear over it as well.
