  1. GREAT job on this car Neil. I have that and the Jim Shampine vega on my build list. Seeing yours complete makes me want to dive into them right now!!! LOL
  2. Geoff...you're doing some fine fab work here. Your skills are really shinning on this project for sure.
  3. "Just dropped in to see what condition YOUR condition was in"...Hmmm.....I think that could be a song...lol Looking mighty fine John. That cockpit is flat awesome with all that fab work...
  4. Man JT...this is REALLY looking GREAT my friend!!!! Your fab work is TOP shelf for sure. You inspire me to the max John. Love it...waiting for your next update for sure...
  5. Man Oh Man John...What an outstanding job on ALL that Fab work. Your Artistic eye and building skills are just amazing my friend. Looking at your work is not only inspirational...it puts a HUGE smile on my face....Kinda like Jack Nickolsons JOKER in the Batman move... GREAT work bubba!!!
  6. Another good one Tom...The paint scheme looks GREAT..
  7. Man...Great looking short Track Dirt car!! The chevelles sure made some cool looking racecars..that's for sure...
  8. Hey Kyle...Did you put a gloss coat on the tire sidewall before you laid the decal down? That's what's needed to prevent it from silvering. Declas have to be applied onto a gloss coat..... Let dry and then cover it in a dull coat. I think you might have to start over with those decals. Did you get them from Indycals? If so...he has a "GOOF UP" clause and he will send you a new set. If not...maybe you can purchase a NEW set from him. Here's the link to his site. http://www.indycals.net/index.html A great guy and real easy to work with..... Hope this helps you.. Gary
  9. Thanks for the positive comments folks. Derick....the decals are custom made( not by me). The only part that looks small is the name Richmond. The rest are pretty much close to what the 1/1 has... It is close enough for the Girl I go with. LOL

    Great job on this really cool car. Smokeys Gold and Black paint schemes have always look great and you nailed this one for sure...
  12. Thanks Bruce and Vince.... Yea...I think the NASCAR recognition was what most folks remember him for. Which...in my opinion..he was as good or even better that Dale E. Tim really started his career in karts and moved up to Dirt sprintcars and then to Asphalt Super Modifieds. Then he ran at Indy for two yrs. 80 and 81. I want to build His really cool Orange Super that he drove. That one will be a very challenging build.
  13. This was a very interesting build to say the least. Finding reference pics for this build proved to be a little challenging but as we know....that's part of the build. The amt PC-6 Indy car kit was used for basic chassis. A lot of fab work went into the conversion to make it the "First ground force" car in the Indycar series. I'd also like to Thank Gary Sleeper at CIRCLE TRACK DECALS for making the Decal sheet for this very colorful paint scheme. Thanks folks for stopping in and commenting... 1-1 at SPEED.... Rear shot showing Tim and His ROOKIE Stripes....
  14. This looks good. I have this car on my build list. Thank you for sharing and reminding me of that car..
  15. Man..Another Trickle car that I didn't know that was out there. I've got at least 5 of his builds that I want to do and then I see your GREAT build. Great job and now...I'm wanting to build this one...LOL.
