  1. # 44 Richard Brown Monte Carlo

    Beautiful build! Impressive scratchwork and nice job with the window frames.
  2. Let's see your Richard Petty builds

    1/64 Torino built from a Hot Wheels car.
  3. Tim Richmond's Folgers Monte Carlo Aerocoupe

    Beautiful! What all did you have to do to get the hood to sit so perfectly?
  4. Monogram 1/24 Terry Labonte 1984 Piedmont Chevy

    Hi everyone, My first finished build of the year. Texas Terry was my favorite driver growing up and I've always loved the look of the Hagan cars and the pre-aerocoupe Monte Carlo SS body. This build is stock, with the exception of Chimneyville Decals. Overall, the kit was a nice, fun build. I used Tamiya rattle can for the body and chassis. I went for an early season red chassis because I like the bright interior. For the rest of the car, I used Tamiya and Vallejo acrylics. My biggest issue was with the aftermarket decals, which peeled on the edges when applying clear. But it's going on the shelf and overall I'm fairly happy with it.
  5. Need help on '87 - '88 Ford engines

    Here's a photo of the Simone Museum's Ford. Not sure how period correct it is as this motors been rebuilt and is run regularly. This won't help with the bottom of the engine, but here's a great shot of the Thunderbird in the Ford Museum, which I would think is pretty closet period correct.
  6. Tony Stewart 2016 Coke Throwback

    Thanks Mike! I got this bottle at a HobbyTown I used to work at in Dallas. I was amazed how easily the paint went on and how well it took to touchups. I don't use much Vallejo anymore these days (the bottles make it hard to mix and I had issues with the paint stopping up my airbrush), but I would use them again for this project.
  7. Tony Stewart 2016 Coke Throwback

    Hi everyone! My name is Jake and I'm new to the forum. It's tough finding a good NASCAR model community so I'm really pleased to join y'all. Here are some photos of my first NASCAR build, which I finished about a year and a half ago. I started with a Jimmie Johnson Snaptite kit and was pretty impressed with it. I didn't do much modification, just some minor detailing here and there. I used (I think) Slixx decals for the Coke throwback and some extra hood pins I got from Mike's Decals. Paint was TS-8 for the red and Vallejo acrylics for the gold. I just started the Bobby Allison Coke Mercury Cyclone from Polar Lights and cannot wait to get the 2 cars side by side. Thanks for looking!
