  1. I had a similar experience. I placed an order, didn't hear anything about it getting shipped, after a few weeks I sent an email, got nothing back after 2 months of not getting any communication I sent one last email, same story so I filed a paypal claim...the next day it got shipped and arrived 3 days later.. It's unfortunate because I liked the paint but I will not be ordering from them again because you shouldn't have to escalate a paypal claim in order for someone to deliver their end of the deal, I would understand if it was an isolated instance but it seems to have happened to a lot of people.
  2. Looks great so far! Looking forward to seeing more, I love racing haulers!
  3. 2019 Drydene Sprint Car driven by Logan Schuchart. This was one of my favorite cars from last year.
  4. Looks Great! I agree with bhgseve, we need more sprints around here!
  5. The door panels look similar to what was on the Rudeen car for the early part of 2018 when Joey drove it, but the hood is definitely just from the old tooling. I look forward to seeing how the body turns out.
  6. The truck is all from the box. The trailer is all scratch built except the wheels/tires, The sprint car is a diecast donor that I took apart and stripped the paint and completely redid, the right wing panel is a styrene piece (I might redo this one as I've figured out some stuff to make the detail better) and I made some lower panels and wing supports. I did recently build one of the new revell sprint kits, I HATE the tires in that kit, I ended up casting a set of my own for that and I scratch built both of the top wing panels. but other than that it was a good kit. I glued some styrene tube to the bottom of the ramp and put a piece of paper clip with a 90deg bend at the end in the tube and glued the paper clip in the trailer. I'll try to get a picture of it when I get a chance.
  7. Looks good so far! Looking forward to seeing your progress, I love seeing sprint car builds! I'm glad that they decided to make this kit with some updates, however my biggest gripe is the tires especially the front ones, I really wish they would have updated those.
  8. I have a couple of the sprint car drivers, not sure if they would work for what you want, they also seem quite abit smaller than the nascar drivers. but let me know if you would be interested.
  9. Here is a link to ebay where I picked mine up. Golf Cart I turned mine into a mule for my sprint car.
  10. oh #4 I just stumbled on his Brian Brown sprint car build I wish I had the knowledge and skill and patience to do something that detailed! I have another one with the body off I'll take a couple pictures when I get a chance.
  11. Have you posted anything of the hauler? Would love to see it!
  12. Very nice! I love seeing these old race cars!
  13. Thanks guys! I've always loved the haulers almost as much as the race cars. I wish I had the space to build one for ever sprint car I have! I live in Florence now, I grew up in Cottage Grove. That started life as a golfcart I found on ebay, I ended up cutting it in half and building the box on the back.
  14. Great job! I just finished the Rat Trap Vega, fun little build without a ton of parts that you can do quick.
  15. Thanks everyone! I definitely want to get some more of these! I know right! Thankfully there are a lot of people out there doing resin parts theres Roon Coon Resins he has a lot of nice parts and theres SWS Chassis for sprint car stuff, though I don't think he's doing any orders atm. Thanks, I'll check it out!
  16. Hey guys, so this was my most ambitious project since I started really getting into building models a little over a year ago. I started with the Peterbilt 377 kit and scratch built the trailer, this was my second attempt at a trailer, the first one was really bad but I think this one turned out ok, I learned a ton building this and have plans in the future to build a couple more. I want to get a few more shots of the insides of both to share but I ran out of time to take pictures. This is a fantasy build of a car I designed in a game.
  17. Here are a couple with the hood off.
  18. Thanks everyone! The truck is just a diecast that I've had for awhile but the trailer had Ford hubcaps so I figured it would be perfect for towing the midget.
  19. I got one of these off ebay that was beat up a little so I decided to strip the paint and redo it as a Kasey Kahne Quaker State car. The things are pretty awesome, they have some pretty good detail in the suspension and just look awesome!
  20. This was one of the models I was most excited to build when I found out they made it, I remember as a kid (not actually that long ago) they used to have a bunch of the vintage cars follow the NST series through Oregon/Washington as a support class to the Sprints, it was really neat to get to see these cars racing in person. This is my second attempt with this car, the first attempt didn't turn out so well, so into a paint stripping bath it went. I made most of the decals for this one, I used my dad as an inspiration for the hood, it's his initials and the name of the railroad company he worked for. I have another one of these I can't wait to get out and get together! Hope you guys enjoy the pictures.
